WFS Settings

Select Services > WFS > Settings in Spectrum Spatial™ Manager to view and edit the global settings for your Web Feature Service and its capabilities. These settings describe your service. This service metadata is returned as part of the response to a GetCapabilities call. See Web Feature Service (WFS) in the Services section of the Spectrum Spatial Guide for more information.

Note: The WFS configuration file WFSConfiguration is pre-configured and located in the Configuration directory under the root repository. For example, a default installation will place the WFS configuration file at http://<server>:<port>/RepositoryService/repository/default/Configuration/WFSConfiguration. Although you can use a WebDAV tool such as WebFolders to copy the WFS configuration file from the repository then upload the modified file, manual editing of this file should only be done by advanced users who require functionality that is not supported by the current version of Spectrum Spatial™ Manager. Unexpected results may occur when using a manually edited configuration file with Spectrum Spatial™ Manager.

Service Settings

The service parameters define the base WFS configuration.
Online resource / Service URL
The HTTP URL (user-accessible endpoint) for your WFS service, formatted as http://server:port/rest/Spatial/WFS. In most cases, it will be as defaulted by the installer, the hostname of your machine and the URL path (rest/Spatial/WFS) and there is no need to change this. You need to change this URL only when
  • Using a proxy around your Spectrum Spatial server. The URL should be changed to point to your proxy.
  • A Spectrum Spatial load-balanced environment where the URL should point to your load balancer.

GetFeature Settings
