Catalog service GetTokenServiceURL method

Gets the URL to an ArcGIS Server token service used to generate tokens for clients.


Return Value

A string representing the URL to the token service. If empty, the token service has not been enabled and is not available.


If authentication has been enabled on an ArcGIS Server site, a complimentary token service can be used to manage transactions. Note that authentication may be enabled on an ArcGIS Server site without using the token service. Use the RequiresTokens method to determine if the token service is being used.
