I am getting this error :{localhost:8080}layername is read only every time I run the application.

I'm publishing my layers as table with the primary keys exposed, what I do every time is go to geoserver-> workspace, uncheck WFS and check it again, save and it will work, but it's not the wanted solution!

My question is, how to bypass this problem once for all ?!

this is the geoserver log errror

And this is the log when activating dev mode : being unable to past all the releveant code over here i upload it on googledrive

  • Did you see gis.stackexchange.com/questions/143223/… ? – BradHards Apr 1 '17 at 8:44
  • yes i did , but i didn't find where to activate the JSONP . i don't know where this error comes from ! – Abdelaziz Apr 1 '17 at 10:12
  • Have a look in the GeoServer logs for more clues as to why this is happening - switch to DEVELOPER logging to get plenty of detail. Post the error message in your question and we might be able to help out more. – CHenderson Apr 1 '17 at 10:57
  • @CHenderson can you please look at the edited question , the log error being too long i posted it to the main question – Abdelaziz Apr 1 '17 at 11:10
  • i think it's something related to user or smth like that ! because when i logging into geoserver then start modifying ; all works fine ! but it's not a valid vsolution when i will deploy my app to the server – Abdelaziz Apr 1 '17 at 12:16

Here are three general causes of read only layers (cannot remember any other):

  • Lack of primary key (seems you already checked it's not the case)
  • Security (just authenticate as the admin user while doing WFS-T to factor it out)
  • Table contains a column type that GeoServer does not understand and thus cannot modify (e.g., hstore in postgresql)
  • Dear Andrea , Thanks a lot for your time and answer Actually i did figured out the problem is of the authentification but i didn't find how to authenticate my app as admin , do u have any idea on how ? Best Regards – Abdelaziz Apr 4 '17 at 8:16
