Hi Behrouz,

If you click on 'Feature Access' in Server Manager you will see the FeatureServer URL.  Also, you can go to your REST Services Directory to obtain this.  Ex:

Thanks for comment Jake, but as you can see in the URL I am not getting any FeatureService but MapServer instead!

Hi Behrouz,

Allow me to help clarify Jake's comment. In your 2nd screenshot showing the Select and configure capabilities section, if you click on the Feature Access text (not just check the checkbox, but click on the actual text), this will change what is displayed underneath and you should see a section called Feature Access Configuration - which should show you a REST URL and SOAP URL ending in /FeatureServer.

Hope this helps,

When you publish a feature service, it creates a Map Service and Feature Service (MapServer/FeatureServer). 

You should see both the links under http://<ServerName>:6080/arcgis/rest/services

Did you receive any error while analyzing the service before publishing? Could you also ensure the data in your MXD is coming from an enterprise GDB?
