Server Info

  • URL:http://<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.
