  • Hi Mou_kolkata,

    Service Metadata is used to describe how to interact with the service’s endpoints. There are two ways to expose WCF Service Metadata, MEX Metadata Endpoints and HTTP GET Metadata Endpoints. WSDL is the way of HTTP GET Metadata Endpoints.

    You could refer the link below for publishing Metadata.
