    The current workflow to clip a map/image service cache to an exact area of interest is to publish another service and use the import export map cache tool. We would like to have a way to clip the map cache service to a defined AOI without having to manage 2 services and 2 cache folders (disk space). In our case we have 9 Basemaps we update them regularly times 2… 18 map service and at least 36 instance and over 500GB to store duplicated cache.  May be allowing for map service MXD data frame is to be published with clip to shape option.

    Thank You,
