From this GeoServer tutorial, (under "Creating a store") I can only see Vector, Database and Raster data types as the only possible data sources. But I was wondering if a Web Mapping service such as a WMTS could be added as a source?

    Geoserver can't, but Mapserver can, because Since version 6.2, Mapserver raster input support is through the GDAL raster library only. And one of GDAL's supported formats is ..WMTS.

    That said, I'm curious why you're compelled to proxy an existing WMTS endpoint through Geoserver.. do you simply need to launder the domain to prevent CORS issues?

    Normally that is done because the remote WMTS is not serving data in a CRS you need. Reprojection is a common driver for cascading. Mar 20 '16 at 13:08
  • Yes, it's mainly a client setup issue. We have a WMTS map tile service and client has a GeoServer hub which they want everything to proxy through, including our map tiles. The only way I see around it is to expose our tiles as a WMS (through the GeoWebCache?) but it's a long-winded process to start with tiles, glue them together as WMS and end up with the same tiles again.

No, it could be added with some programming work, but right now GeoServer can only cascade WMS.
