ArcGIS Server REST Admin API Proxy

Project description

agsadmin provides a convenient Python front-end to several REST calls on the ArcGIS Server 10.1+ REST Admin API.


ArcGIS Server (RestAdmin)

  • Services (Map/Image/Geoprocessing/Geometry/Geocode/GeoData/Globe/Search)

    • start and stop

    • get statistics

    • get status

    • get or set the item info (description, summary, tags, etc.)

    • set service properties

    • rename services

  • Machines

    • start and stop

  • System

    • Directories

      • list directories

      • register new directories

      • unregister directories

      • clean directories

  • Uploads

    • list uploads

    • get a specific upload item

    • upload a file

These functions can be used to automate management of ArcGIS Services (e.g. start/stop services on a schedule, start/stop services to perform maintenance on associated datasets, etc.)

ArcGIS Portal (SharingAdmin)

  • Content

    • get item

    • add/get/move/delete/update user item

    • get user/folder content

  • Community

    • get user

    • get group

    • create group

    • update group


The following is a simplistic example to stop and start a map service.

import agsadmin

hostname = "<ServerNameHere>"
username = "<UsernameHere>"
password = "<PasswordHere>"

rest_admin = agsadmin.RestAdmin(hostname, username, password)
service ="<MapServiceNameHere>", "MapServer", "<OptionalFolderHere>")
