I can see only first 10 wms layers of Geoserver is enabled while opening with ArcMap. Is there anyway, I can make all layers enabled?

enter image description here


This is a limitation of ArcMap to stop the (unwanted) loading of hundreds of layers. See the documentation, last paragraph: "ArcGIS automatically turns on the first 10 layers in any WMS service you add to a map or preview in ArcCatalog."

Nevertheless, you could write a Python script for ArcMap to enabled all the layers - if really necessary. Here's an link to a script.

  • Thanks for reply Greg; No, my question is not that one,. mine is about the layer not enabled; if you look closed,. only first 10 layers enabled,. rest are disabled.. – Nannan Satish Sep 10 '18 at 8:25
  • Thanks Greg,. Python script for ArcGIS,. or to Geoserver WMS Layer? – Nannan Satish Sep 10 '18 at 8:52
  • @NannanSatish: great. I edited my answer, you can accept it, if it solved your problem. I also deleted my comments to avoid misunderstandings. – Greg Z Sep 12 '18 at 6:45
