00290: Cannot connect through admin URL or services URL

You are sharing to a federated server that does not allow access to the admin API through the admin URL or the services URL. Access to the admin API is required to connect to the cache data store and to make certain requests required to publish services. The following layer types cannot be shared without access to the admin API:

  • Web tile layers
  • Scene layers
  • Map image layers
  • Elevation layers
  • Imagery layers


  • If sharing a layer type other than web tile or scene, select a different federated server that allows access to the admin API.
  • Contact your administrator or Esri Technical Support for further assistance.
