The map image layer with the cache tiles to be imported. You can choose it by browsing to the desired service in a portal, or you can drag a web tile layer from the Portal tab in the Project pane to supply this parameter.

Source Cache Type
Imports a cache from a cache dataset or tile package to a cached map or image service running on the server.
Source Cache Dataset
The path to the tiles that will be imported. This is represented by a raster dataset icon when you are browsing. You do not have to specify a registered server cache directory; most of the time you'll specify a location on disk where tiles have been previously exported. This location should be accessible to the ArcGIS Server account. If the ArcGIS Server account cannot be granted access to this location, check the Upload data to server parameter.
Source Tile Package
The path to the tile package that will be imported. This location should be accessible to the ArcGIS Server account. Importing a tile package file to a cached map or image service automatically enables the Upload data to server parameter.
Upload data to server
Check this parameter if the ArcGIS Server account does not have read access to the source cache. The tool will upload the source cache to the ArcGIS Server uploads directory before moving it to the ArcGIS Server cache directory.
A list of scale levels at which tiles will be imported.
By default, the scales listed in the tool dialog box are between the minimum and maximum cached scales for the service. To update the scale range, go to the Service Editor > Caching tab and use the sliders to update the minimum and maximum cached scales.
Number of caching service instances
Specifies the number of instances that will be used to update or generate the tiles. The value for this parameter is set to unlimited (-1) and cannot be modified.
Area Of Interest
An area of interest polygon that spatially constrains where tiles are imported into the cache. This parameter is useful if you want to import tiles for irregularly shaped areas, as the tool clips the cache dataset, which intersects the polygon at pixel resolution and imports it to the service cache directory.
If you do not provide a value for this parameter, the value of the Import Extent parameter will be used. The default is to use the full extent of the map.
A rectangular extent defining the tiles to be imported into the cache. By default, the extent is set to the full extent of the map service into which you are importing. Note that the optional parameter on this tool, Area Of Interest, allows you to spatially constrain the imported tiles using an irregular shape. If values are provided for both parameters, the Area Of Interest parameter takes precedence over Import Extent.
Specifies whether the images in the destination cache will be merged with the tiles from the originating cache or overwritten by them.
