I'd like to add a time dimension to my coverage in GeoServer. I've seen quite a few questions on this in this stack exchange but the solutions don't really work for me.
I need to do this via the REST API, without the ImageMosaic plugin and without changing the file names.
I however first tried with the GUI. I am following the instructions in
I get immediately stuck because it says there is no time information available.
I looked into the other parts of the GUI to see where I could specify the time for my layer. My best bet was the metadata section but it seems this part is irrelevant.
So, my question is, how do I specify the time for my layer (given that I don't want to use image mosaic nor can I change the name of the file).
