We are switching from .com to .gov for all of our domain names. We have many services on an external facing AGServer site and also publish to AGOL.

Is there a mechanism to update the urls that the server site uses?

What about the deployment/server configuration?


Further, we have an internal AGPortal (federated) that uses two different servers.

What's the process to update the urls and server configs for that?


Thanks for any/all insight.

**EDIT: by 'easy' I'm more referring to editing the configs that are in place, as opposed to starting over with 5 servers from scratch...

I see "easily" in your subject.  The easy button way without scripting or using the REST API to do a global URL change from .com to .gov is use GeoJobe Admin Tools (Pro) for ArcGIS Online and Portal.

There are other ways too.  I'll stop at easy for now.

The domain name is hardcoded into the files for published services (map services and hosted feature layers), and there's not an easy way to go about adjusting them.  I would reach out to Tech support or your account manager to talk about paths forward.
