Server Info

  • URL:https://<host>/<instance>/rest/info
  • Version Introduced:10.0


The ServerInfo resource provides general information about the server (for example, the current version of the server), as well as information on whether the server is secured using token-based authentication; and the token services URL (if token-based authentication is used). At 10.1 and later, when the server is secured using token-based authentication, the shortLivedTokenValidity property is returned. The value returned for this property represents the validity of short-lived tokens in minutes.
