Securing ArcGIS Server Services

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Note: For detailed instructions how to restrict access to map services in ArcGIS Server, please check ArcGIS Resources - Restricting access to GIS web services and ArcGIS Resources - Editing permissions in Manager.

 

Out of the box, the published services hosted by ArcGIS Server are publicly available for everyone with knowledge of the web service's URL and network access to the ArcGIS Server. To restrict access to a service, you will need to specify which users are allowed to access that service.
