Is there a way to specify alpha channel inside raster SLD in GeoServer. For example, I have a multispectral map with 6 bands(B-G-R-RE-NIR-Alpha), where the sixth band is alpha, and I would like to show it as RGBA using SLD style. I can order channels in the ChannelSelection tag to show RGB without the Alpha channel, but how can I add an alpha channel here?

SLD provides no way to select an alpha channel. It could be implemented as a vendor extension, if you are interested in developing or sponsoring it, get in touch with the GeoServer developers or the commercial support providers
