Geoserver Catalog MIXED mode in
Data Security section is perfect for my purposes since I want to trigger an alert for authentication whenever a specific layer is requested.
Since I need to create Geoserver Users using a REST API from another server I need to use Geofence.
When defining rules in Geofence, there's an option to modify the catalog mode for a specific layer.
I expected this "authentication alert" to appear when the catalog mode in Geofence rules is defined as MIXED. But this is not happening, instead, I receive this error:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><!DOCTYPE ServiceExceptionReport SYSTEM "http://localhost:8080/geoserver/schemas/wms/1.1.1/WMS_exception_1_1_1.dtd"> <ServiceExceptionReport version="1.1.1" > <ServiceException code="LayerNotDefined" locator="layers"> Could not find layer workspace:layer </ServiceException></ServiceExceptionReport>
Interestingly, If I navigate to the dev tools and check for the request, I'm getting some kind of token in the body:
So my questions:
- Is this the expected behaviour?
- Or i'm doing something wrong?
- What is this token I'm receiving?
