I work on ArcGIS 10.3, and I try to find a way to convert MapServer into FeatureServer.

The MapServer has no attribute table, and there no way to change the symbology. The FeatureServer has attribute table and after I add it to the map, i can export it into feature layer and it acts as a regular layer.

I found the layer here:


Is there any way to do it?

    You've tagged this as mapserver ~ gis.stackexchange.com/tags/mapserver/info is that what you mean? – nmtoken Jan 1 '18 at 15:27

    Only the map service publisher (or the site administrator) can alter a published service. Please edit the question to specify that you have only consumer rights on the server. – Vince Jan 1 '18 at 16:32

I don't think you can unless you are the original publisher or administrator of the service.

When creating a new service or editing an already published service, there is an option to "allow feature access". That creates a feature service.

    You can also alter the service after publishing. – Vince Jan 1 '18 at 16:34
