I have exported some styles from QGIS as SLD files and then loaded them into GeoServer. I have published a couple of layers from a PostGIS database and these load nicely in the OpenGeo Composer with a simple YSLD style.
I now want to apply the more complete style that I built in QGIS so I went back to Geoserver and found 'available style' under the 'publish' tab of the layer. I added the style that I had imported to the 'available' list but composer appears to ignore it.
It seems that the only way I can fiddle with the style is to edit the yaml. I did try an XML to YAML converter and was unsurprised when the results were not usable.
I really want to have one definitive source for my styles. I don't mind exporting them from QGIS as files but I really don't want to have to recreate them in YAML by hand.
What am I missing?
