I want to develop a GIS system with OpenLayers and GeoServer which is installed with OpenGeo Suite 4.1 and I need to edit a layer with no GeoServer authentication. This means that guest members should have permission to edit a layer.

How can I do this?

    By default no authentication is needed to edit using WFS-T. Are you having any problems with doing so? what have you tried? Where are you current stuck? You'll tend to get better quality answers if you post your research first. – Devdatta Tengshe Aug 19 '14 at 7:20
  • You're right, But in new version of geoserver transaction set to admin Role, and now I delete it and solve my problem. thanks – Morteza Malvandi Aug 19 '14 at 7:32

I use GeoServer in OpenGeo Suite 4.1. In this package, the "Service access rules list" page has a rule that only "ADMIN" roles have permission for WFS-Transaction.

wfs.Transation --> ADMIN

You must delete this rule.
