Remove from Server

  • URL:https://<datastores-url>/removeFromServer(POST only)
  • Version Introduced:10.7.1


The removeFromServer operation unregisters a specified data store from your ArcGIS Server. A data store cannot be removed, however, if there are outstanding bulk-publishing layers on the specified server. All layers published through the publishLayers operation must be deleted before the data store can be unregistered.
