Content Server services are functions or procedures performed by the Content Server. Calling a Content Server service (making a service request) is the only way to communicate with the Content Server or to access the database.

Client services are usually called externally while administrative services are called internally. The service uses its own attributes and actions to execute the request, based on any parameters passed to the service.
