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.


  • Map/Geoprocessing Services
    • start and stop
    • get statistics
    • get status
    • get or set the item info (description, summary, tags, etc.)
    • set service properties
  • 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.)


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>")
