- Required Capability:Administrator
- Version Introduced:10.2
The Create Site operation initializes and configures your ArcGIS Enterprise portal for use. It must be the first operation invoked after installation. Creating a new site involves:
- Creating the initial administrator account
- Creating a new database administrator account (which is same as the initial administrator account)
- Creating token shared keys
- Registering directories
This operation is time-consuming, as the database is initialized and populated with default templates and content. If the database directory is not empty, this operation attempts to migrate the database to the current version while keeping its data intact. At the end of this operation, the web server that hosts the API is restarted.
