I have some code that queries the esri webserver for a list of services.

I start off with:

https://MyEsriUrl/arcgis/rest/services?f=sitemap

That code worked for years.

We recently attached a portal to our esri webserver. We're now running v10.5 of both.

Now, the esri admin can issue this command in the browser and it still works, but if I issue it I get an empty list back.

I thought it might be a permissions issue except for three facts:

(1) If I go to

https://MyEsriUrl/arcgis/rest/services

I can see everything I ought to see.

(2) I've found out that I can now use

https://MyEsriUrl/arcgis/rest/services?f=json

and that also works correctly.

(3) Esri admin added me to the esri admin role and I still can't see anything with ?f=sitemap.

Obviously, I can rewrite the code to work, but that app is scheduled to be replaced and I would rather spend time working on the replacement app...

Any ideas on how to get ?f=sitemap to work properly?

arcgis server - esri rest service ?f=sitemap returns no services - Geographic Information Systems St... covers this in more detail.

Apparently, this is intended behavior.   Can't understand why, but it is what it is.

Item #3 above was a browser caching issue.  So at least I'm getting consistent results.

Any ideas how to get ?f=sitemap to work for someone who isn't a site admin?

I've rewritten my code to make multiple, recursive calls to the server via the ?f=json and it's slow as all get out.   Yuck!

So, I'm going to create a service acct with GIS admin privs and create a web service to wrap the call to the ?f=sitemap option.   That way, the web service will ask as an admin and pass the data I need back much faster.

For gis websites that aren't "ours" (so we don't have admin access), we'll use the new code I've written.
