ESRI's 10.0 documentation for legend indicates that this url should return a legend:


But it doesn't work. Is there something special I need to do when publishing a mapservice to enable legends? If not, does anyone know of a url that returns a legend?


The REST legend service was added in Service Pack 1. Has this server had Service Pack 1 installed? It appears that it has not.

'currentVersion' was added to serveral resources to indicate the version and patch level. See the latest ArcGIS 10 API documentation for more details.

  • Thanks Ryan, this makes me wonder if there's something in the API that tells you what SP is installed. – Kirk Kuykendall Nov 15 '10 at 15:32

    10.0 SP1 returns a currentVersion value of 10.01, not the 10.0 that "vanilla" 10.0 returns. Just make sure to parse that properly, so you don't accidentally get 10.1! – mwalker Nov 15 '10 at 19:41
