I've searched around and come up with some documentation about how to do this, but it is not particularly clear and doesn't solve my problem.

I'm currently connected to an ArcGIS server via WMS in ArcMap. I'd like to add the same WMS layers from the server as an Item in my ArcGIS Online content. Using the same URL that I did to connect to it via WMS in ArcMap does not work.

Based on the following documentation, should I email the owner of the service to ask for the REST URL instead? If so, why isn't it possible to just connect with the same URL used in connecting via WMS?
