• I have a workspace in Geoserver and I have some layers on it. I have enabled Complete WFS in that worskpace.

Now I want just some specific layers from there prevented from being edited via WFS because those layers are managed throught a web application and are stored in PostgreSQL/PostGIS.

Is there another way to achieve this without publishing those layers in a new workspace and disabling WFS Service in this new workspace?

You can use the security subsystem to disallow writes on a specific set of layers: http://geoserver.geo-solutions.it/edu/en/security/layer_level.html http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/security/layer.html
