I am trying to update feature information of wfs feature to geoserver using WFST in ol3. I am getting the below error in the response

<ows:ExceptionReport xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:ows="http://www.opengis.net/ows" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="1.0.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/ows http://localhost:8080/geoserver/schemas/ows/1.0.0/owsExceptionReport.xsd">

The request is

<Transaction xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/wfs" service="WFS" version="1.1.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/wfs http://schemas.opengis.net/wfs/1.1.0/wfs.xsd">

      <Value>Level crossing</Value>
    <Filter xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/ogc">
      <FeatureId fid="tn_poi.308"/>

I know there seems to some undefined null value in the request for pos but the object which i am sending to request doesnt has null value in it enter image description here

Where does this undefined value comes from below is my code

    var self.feat_att = $$hashKey: "object:722"
    geometry: Object
    coordinates: Array[2]
      0: 8682209.29541959
      1: 1159929.44262119
     length: 2
     type: "Point"
     geometry_name: "the_geom"
     id: "tn_poi.308"
     properties: Object
       CATEGORY: "Automotive update test"
       NAME: "Level crossing"
     type: "Feature"
for (var i in self.feat_att) {

            geomtype = self.feat_att[i].geometry.type;
            switch(geomtype) {
                case "Point":
                    geom = self.feat_att[i].geometry.coordinates;
                    feature =  new ol.geom.Point([geom]);
                case "MultiPoint":
                     feature = new ol.geom.MultiPoint([geom]);
                case "LineString":
                     feature = new ol.geom.LineString([geom]);
                case "MultiLineString":
                     geom = self.feat_att[i].geometry.coordinates[0];
                     feature = new ol.geom.MultiLineString([geom]);
                case "Polygon":
                     feature = new ol.geom.Polygon([geom]);
                case "MultiPolygon":
                      geom = self.feat_att[i].geometry.coordinates;
                      feature = new ol.geom.MultiPolygon([geom]);

            var att_columns = self.feat_att[i].properties
            var featobj = {the_geom:feature}
            var attobj = $.extend(featobj, att_columns)
            var featurething = new ol.Feature(attobj)
            var featid = self.feat_att[i].id

            /*switch (p) {
                case 'update':
                    node =  formatWFS.writeTransaction(null, [featurething], null, formatGML);
            node =  formatWFS.writeTransaction(null, [featurething], null, formatGML);
            s =  new XMLSerializer();
            str = s.serializeToString(node);
            var feat_data=str.replace("feature:tn_poi",'geowebmap_ws:tn_highways');
            $.ajax(base_URL+'geowebmap_ws/ows', {
                type: 'POST',
                dataType: 'xml',
                processData: false,
                contentType: 'text/xml',
                data: feat_data,
                error: function (xhr) {
                   var err = JSON.parse(xhr.responseText);

The problem is your gml:pos element, instead of

<pos>8682209.29541959,1159929.44262119 undefined</pos>

it should be

<pos srsDimension="3">8682209.29541959 1159929.44262119 0</pos>


<pos srsDimension="2">8682209.29541959 1159929.44262119</pos>

From a quick look at the OL docs it looks like you need to specify

feature =  new ol.geom.Point([geom],'XY');

to prevent OL thinking you have a Z or M element in your array. I think the commas come from mixing GML 2 and GML3 but I can't see where you set up you formatGML object, but a WFS 1.1.0 will be expection GML2.

  • I am using var formatWFS = new ol.format.WFS(); var formatGML = new ol.format.GML2({ featureNS: base_URL+'web/geowebmap_ws', featureType: 'tn_poi', srsName: 'EPSG:3857' }); And feature = new ol.geom.Point([geom],'XY'); Still am getting the same error – User123 May 29 '18 at 8:03
