Description

Introduction

ESRI® announces the ArcGIS Server 10.0 REST API Server Info Resource Patch for the Microsoft .NET Framework. This patch addresses an issue in the REST API Server Info resource. We recommend this patch to any secured ArcGIS Server for the Microsoft .NET Framework installations that use a token based security. The patch deals specifically with the issue listed below under Issues Addressed with this Patch.

Issues Addressed with this Patch

  • NIM058251 - The token service URL that is returned by .NET REST Server Info resource is incorrect. Currently it returns the URL to the getToken HTML page which is the page intended for manually generating a token. Mobile clients (eg: IPhone) require the URL returned to be the token service endpoint that can be programmatically used to generate a token.

    Description: At 10.0 Final, the token service URL returned by .NET REST Server Info resource is not suitable for an application that will refer to this URL to programmatically generate a token . With this fix in NIM058251, the token service URL reported in the Server Info Resource will be correct and can be programmatically used for generating a token. Please see the REST API reference for more information about the Server Info Resource.
