Is it possible to enable service discovery for specific users or specific roles.

I want to publish some of services externally so I want to disable service discovery as Esri recommends at security best practices.

But When I disable it, I couldn't get enough information from service manager like layer names and index numbers, etc.

What do you do usually? Do you have any recommendation?

I usually review the JSON representation. Disabling the services directory prevents sites from crawling the HTML representation, but apps still need to communicate via text/JSON, like:
