I'm finding that I hate remembering which REST Service does what, as well as where they are located.
I know that ArcGIS Pro apparently allows you to save the Layer level pointers so that they don't get changed and end up altering multiple maps or applications but I want something easier.
I started thinking about setting up some named redirects... then instead of pointing to http://maindomain/completely.long.url.pointing.to/rest/services/actualservice/mapserver/0 I would point to http://maindomain/servicename in my maps.
Has anyone else considered this? Is anyone else doing this? Just curious...
