Find GIS Service URL on ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS

The GIS Service URL is what we use to connect to your GIS data. This article explains how to look up the GIS Service URL.


First sign in to your ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS account.

  1. Select the Content tab at the top of the page.
  2. Select My Organization.
  3. Click Layers.
  4. Select the desired layer.

  5. Select the specific layer under Layers.  

  6. The GIS Service URL is found here. You can click the clipboard icon next to the URL to copy the GIS Service URL.

Tip 1

Feature services end with ../FeatureServer/<id>. Map services end with ../MapServer.

Example Feature Service

https://<server name>/arcgis/rest/services/<layer name>/FeatureServer/0

Example Map Service

https://<server name>/arcgis/rest/services/<layer name>/MapServer

Tip 2

GIS Service URLs must be secured using https. Modern browsers will not load insecure http services on the secure UtiliSync website. See this article on how to configure https on ArcGIS Server.
