ArcGIS REST API

Check Service Name

Description

Checks whether a given service name and type are available for publishing a new service. true indicates that the name and type is not found in the organization's services and is available for publishing. false means the requested name and type are not available.

For ArcGIS Enterprise users: This operation only verifies the uniqueness of your input service name, and not whether it is valid under the ArcGIS Enterprise portal's name policy. The createService operation will fail if the requested service name contains spaces or special characters other than underscores.
