Item Information

Description

The item information resource stores metadata about a service. Typically, this information is available to clients that want to index or harvest information about the service.

Item information is represented in JSON format defined by the schema described below. It can optionally contain thumbnail images associated with the service. The thumbnail images can be accessed with a URL by appending the path of the image to this item information URL.

NoteNote:

If the thumbnail is stored under thumbnail/image.jpg, the URL to access this image will be http://server:port/arcgis/admin/services/[<folder>]/<service>/iteminfo/thumbnail/image.jpg.

Some of the properties in the item information are visible in ArcGIS Server Manager (and ArcGIS Desktop) when you view the service's properties and click the Item Description page. These properties are listed in the following table:
