Services/Root Folder

Description

The root folder is a container for all sub-folders and GIS services. A root folder can contain one or more sub-folders and GIS services.

You can create a new sub-folder by using the Create Folder operation and a new GIS service by using the Create Service operation. The Permissions resource on the folder will let you set permissions on your GIS services and subfolders. Setting permissions on a folder is a convenient way to toggle permissions on a large number of services. The types resource returns a list of all the service types and their extensions supported on the ArcGIS Server.
