as the title suggests, I am currently working with a wms provided by geoserver 2.8.x, with the focus being put on a time-attribute. The official documentation is really lacking details on how to configure a layer with a date-field in geoserver, especially the "dimensions"-tab.
So the .shp i uploaded onto geoserver comes with two date-fields (begin and end), each containing, you guessed it, a date where a special action has begun and ended. I want my wms to only query features whose begin- and end-field are within a given period, e.g. by submitting
&TIME=2014-03-22/2014-04-01 on getmap i want it to return features that lie completely within these boundaries.
However, geoserver returns any value where the given time period is somewhat included.
Does anyone know a way to work around that problem? Or maybe how to configure the layer itself in geoserver?
