Bug BUG-000099408


Disabling directory access in Portal for ArcGIS does not prevent querying user information via: https://[portal.domain.com]/[webadaptor]/sharing/rest/community/users/[username]?f=json

Additional Information

This is not a bug. Disabling the REST Services directory does not prevent requests and responses over JSON. All requests and responses go over JSON. Disabling the Services Directory disables the HTML representation of the REST API. This is expected behavior. See: http://server.arcgis.com/en/portal/latest/administer/linux/disabling-the-arcgis-portal-directory.htm
