This resource is a collection of all the items that have been uploaded to the server. There are two ways to upload items. You can upload complete items using the Upload Item operation. If a particular item is made up of many chunks ( parts), you need to first register the item and subsequently upload the individual parts using the Upload Part operation.

Item uploads are filtered by an allowed list of filename extensions. Below is the default list:

  • soe
  • sd
  • sde
  • odc
  • csv
  • txt
  • zshp
  • kmz

The default list can be overridden by setting the uploadFileExtensionAllowedList property with the server properties API.


At 10.9, the name of this parameter has been updated from uploadFileExtensionWhitelist to uploadFileExtensionAllowedList.
