The Create Service utility allows you to publish a service from the command line. A service definition (.sd) file is required.
The name of an ArcGIS Server user who will execute the utility. The user must have the appropriate level of privileges to execute the action. If your site is configured with web-tier authentication, specify a built-in user, such as the primary site administrator account.
The password of the user who is specified with the -u parameter.
The URL of the site, in one of the following formats:
Note that you cannot use port 6443 in this URL. If your site has HTTPS Only configured and you want to use this utility, change the site's protocol setting to HTTP and HTTPS first.
The path to the service definition file.
Optional. The GIS server folder in which to deploy the service.
Optional. The name for the service, if you want to override the name contained in the service definition.
Prints help for the utility.
The following example creates a service named Yellowstone at the root level of the server using the file Yellowstone.sd.
At 10.2.2 and earlier versions, you were required to reference the Python directory and Python extension (.py) when executing the utilities from the command line. At 10.3 and later versions, this is not required. You can run the utilities directly from the command line without referencing these Python dependencies.
If you implemented logic that automates the execution of these utilities, you need to update your scripts to remove the Python dependencies. The following are examples:
- <ArcGIS Server installation location>/arcgis/server/tools/python
- The .py extension when referring to the name of the command line utility
See the following example for correct usage:
<ArcGIS Server installation location>/arcgis/server/tools/admin/createservice -u admin -p admin -s http://gisserver.domain.com:6080 -f /opt/data/Yellowstone/Yellowstone.sd -n Yellowstone
The following example creates a service named San Diego in the folder RegionalPlanning.
<ArcGIS Server installation location>/arcgis/server/tools/admin/createservice -u admin -p admin -s http://gisserver.domain.com:6080 -f /opt/data/SanDiego/SanDiego.sd -F RegionalPlanning -n SanDiego
