I am trying to connect GeoServer wms layers in QGIS for the purpose of web mapping. The layers are shown properly in QGIS but the layers attribute that means layer information is not visible in layer properties.

    A WMS (web map service) layer consists of raster images. It doesn't have features with attributes. If you want features with attributes, you need a WFS (web feature service) layer. – csk Sep 20 at 17:12

    Or you can use the identify tool to see individual feature attributes – Ian Turton Sep 20 at 17:39

WMS does not have attributes. In geoserver, wfs of the layer should be available too. Add wfs layer instead of wms.
