Is there anyone out there who has set wmts layer from Geoserver to ArcGIS viewer for flex?

I am trying to do that but without any luck.

<layer label="Sample WMTS layer" type="wmts" visible="true" useproxy="false" imageformat="gif" url="http://v2.suite.opengeo.org/geoserver/gwc/service/wmts" style="_null" servicemode="KVP" layerid="world" tilematrixsetid="EPSG:4326"/>

If I change the type to "wms" it works like a charm.


  • Did you ever manage to solve this? I am trying to figure this out my self, this is the link which I use to try to solve it geonet.esri.com/thread/49272 . I will keep you posted if will figure this out. – user28386 Aug 19 '15 at 7:47
  • No we did not. So we just used WMS instead of WMTS. But we are still looking for answers. If we find the answer we will let you know. :) – Sjonni Aug 20 '15 at 8:42

In my project I had to use proxy with WMTS layers, otherwise they would not work.


As noted in the thread in the comment by @user28386:

The issue is likely that the server does have a crossdomain.xml but it only has "allow-http-request-headers-from" and does not have an entry for "allow-access-from".


Unlike the WMS type, there is no skipgetcababilities attribute. Since this is the case, if the WMTS service does not have a crosdomain file associated with it, you will need to provide a proxy page URL.
