Service Types

Description

ArcGIS Server supports a variety of GIS service types. Each service is made up of a specific set of properties that are defined for the type. You can create a new GIS service by submitting a JSON representation of the service to the Create Service operation.

This document defines a subset of the supported service types and notable properties.

Supported types:

NoteNote:

The following property sets must be passed in as value of the properties parameter in the JSON representation of the service.

MapServer

{ 
	//required – the full path including the file name of the map document file
	"filePath" : "",

	//optional – boolean flag indicating whether clients should resample tiles for areas where tiles are unavailable.
	//This property is not enabled by default; you can add it using the ArcGIS Server Administrator Directory.
	"resampling" : "",

	//optional – maximum number of records returned in query or data operations – default : 500
	"maxRecordCount" : "",

	//optional –  Added in 10.3.1. Also applies to feature services. Specifies the time zone used by the service.
	//The value is the Windows ID for the time zone in text, for example, "Pacific Standard Time" or "Eastern Standard Time".
	//This property is not enabled by default; use the ArcGIS Server Administrator Directory to enable.
	//This property only applies to date fields that are not used to time-enable a layer and are not used in editor tracking date fields.
	//This property assumes all  date field values are stored in the time zone specified.
	//When editing, the data is converted from UTC to the  time zone specified  before being written to the database.
	//If performing a query with a where clause and the where clause references a date field value,
	//the date values must be in the same time zone of the data.

	//property (not the feature service maxRecordCount property). Otherwise, this property will be ignored.
