ArcGIS REST API

Create Site

  • URL:https://server:port/arcgis/admin/createNewSite(POST only)
  • Version Introduced:10.1

Description

The createSite operation is the first operation that you must invoke when you install ArcGIS Server for the first time. Creating a new site involves the following:

  • Allocating a store to save the site configuration
  • Configuring the server machine and registering it with the site
  • Configuring server directories
  • Deploying the services that are marked to automatically deploy

Because of the number of tasks, it usually takes awhile for this operation to complete. Once a site has been created, you can publish GIS services and deploy them to your server machines.

Note:

This operation is available only when a server machine is not participating in a site.

A flag that indicates if the operation needs to be run asynchronously.
