The service link relation identifies a link that targets the Service resource, which is accessed using the HTTP GET method.


The Service resource is the web service’s entry-point resource, and is the only resource whose URI is publicly known.

All resource representations returned by the Web API contain a link to the Service resource.

In representations of the Service resource itself, the self link relation is used to refer to this resource.
