I'm not able to get information with "GetFeatureInfo" request. I'm getting following replay:

"Either no layer was queryable, or no layers were specified using QUERY_LAYERS"

I made sure that my wms (https://www.geoservice.apps.be.ch/geoservice2/services/a42geo/a42geo_hoehenwms_d_fk/MapServer/WMSServer?service=wms&version=1.1.1&request=GetCapabilities) is set to be "Queryable". Using QGIS I manage to get attributes without a problem.

Is there any settings in Geoserver that I may forget to enable in order to use the the request "GetFeatureInfo"?


As is explained in the documentation getFeatureInfo requests are only supported if the remote server supports application/vnd.ogc.gml as the info format.

WMS GetFeatureInfo requests will be passed to the remote WMS. If the remote WMS supports the application/vnd.ogc.gml format the request will be successful.

  • My wms unfortunately doesn't support this format. Thank you for your replay! – Kumbria Jul 9 '18 at 12:29
