Re-create the geometry service

If you want to move the geometry service from the Utilities folder of your ArcGIS Server site to another folder, you'll need to delete the service and re-create it in the desired folder using the ArcGIS Server Administrator Directory.

To re-create the geometry service, follow these steps:

  1. In a web browser, open the Administrator Directory. The URL is formatted and log in.
  2. In the Administrator Directory, click services.
  3. In the folders list, select the folder that will contain the geometry service. If you don't see an appropriate folder, you can create one by choosing createFolder.
  4. Click createService.
  5. On the Operation - createService page, paste the following JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) into the Service Properties text box:
  6. {
     "serviceName": "Geometry",
     "type": "GeometryServer",
     "description": "The Geometry service is used by application developers to assist with geometric operations such as projecting, generalizing, and intersecting geometry.",
     "capabilities": "null",
     "minInstancesPerNode": 1,
     "maxInstancesPerNode": 2,
     "instancesPerContainer": 1,
     "maxWaitTime": 60,
     "maxStartupTime": 300,
     "maxIdleTime": 1800,
     "maxUsageTime": 600,
     "loadBalancing": "ROUND_ROBIN",
     "isolationLevel": "HIGH",
     "configuredState": "STOPPED",
     "recycleInterval": 24,
     "recycleStartTime": "00:00",
     "keepAliveInterval": -1,
     "private": false,
     "isDefault": false,
     "maxUploadFileSize": -1,
     "allowedUploadFileTypes": "",
     "properties": {},
     "extensions": [],
     "datasets": []

    Do not change the value for serviceName. Clients will be unable to consume your geometry service if it is named something other than Geometry.

  7. Click Create.

    Your geometry service is created and appears in the Services list.

  8. Optionally, start the geometry service by clicking Geometry and clicking start on the Service - Geometry (GeometryServer) page.
