Remarks

The UserProfileService Web service provides a user profile interface for remote clients to read and create user profiles.

To use the UserProfileService Web service library, you must generate a proxy class in either Microsoft Visual C# or Microsoft Visual Basic through which you can call the various Web service methods.

The Web Services Description Language (WSDL) for the UserProfileService endpoint is accessed through UserProfileService.asmx?wsdl.

The following example shows the format of the URL to the UserProfileService WSDL file.

http://<server>/<customsite>/_vti_bin/UserProfileService.asmx

If you do not have a custom site, you can use the following URL:

http://<server>/_vti_bin/UserProfileService.asmx
