The individual item resource represents an item that has been uploaded to the server. Various workflows upload items and then process them on the server. For example, when publishing a GIS service from ArcGIS Pro or ArcGIS Server Manager, the application first uploads the service definition (.sd) to the server and then invokes the publishing geoprocessing tool to publish the service.

Each uploaded item is identified by a unique name (itemID). The pathOnServer property locates the specific item in the ArcGIS Server system directory. The committed parameter is set to true once the upload of individual parts is complete.


If the uploaded item is not made up of any parts, the parts list is empty.
