Response properties

PropertiesDescription
databases

The database property contains the following information:

  • byReference—Indicates whether the service data is referenced from a registered folder or database (true) or if it was copied to the server at the time the service was published (false).
  • onPremiseConnectionString—Path to publisher data location.
  • onServerConnectionString—Path to data location after publishing completes.

When both the server machine and the publisher machine are using the same folder or database, byReference is true and the onPremiseConnectionString and onServerConnectionString properties have the same value.

When the server machine and the publisher machine are using different folders or databases, byReference is true and the onPremiseConnectionString and onServerConnectionString properties have different values.

When the data is copied to the server automatically at publish time, byReference is false.

resources

The resources property contains the following information:

  • clientName—Machine where ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro was used to publish the service.
  • onPremisePath—Path, relative to the clientName machine, where the source resource (.mxd, .3dd, .tbx files, geodatabases, and so on) originated.
  • serverPath—Path to the document after publishing completes.
Note:

OnPremisePath is not valid for geoprocessing services because the geoprocessing publishing framework creates an in-memory toolbox in the user's profile and that path is what is saved. You cannot use this path to return to a meaningful .tbx file. At the same time, you are able to publish geoprocessing services from the aggregation of multiple results, and the multiple sources for the service are not saved.

Example usage

Below is a sample request URL for the manifest resource:

https://machine.domain.com/webadaptor/admin/services/Maps/California.MapServer/iteminfo/manifest/manifest.json
