In Geoserver Layer Preview I can't open preview for single layers, in case of Layer Groups it works fine, but when I click single layer preview, pop-ups download window with a "wms" named file which includes the text below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE ServiceExceptionReport SYSTEM "http://dev.ozorix.com/geoserver/schemas/wms/1.1.1/WMS_exception_1_1_1.dtd"> 
<ServiceExceptionReport version="1.1.1" >   
<ServiceException code="LayerNotDefined" locator="layers">
Could not find layer mygeorgia:mg_5_roads

I searched the issue in Google for hours but didn't succeed, tried to change styles, projection, edit wms links - no improvement.

Does anyone know how to solve the issue?

  • GeoServer Logs are empty, I am working for a company and this GeoServer is installed on remote server. I don't know what they use or installed. – Vitruvius Jun 25 at 14:28

    you may need to turn logging on or up to see something then. You tagged the question with geofence - if it isn't involved then you should remove the tag, if it is then you need to add details of the settings – Ian Turton Jun 25 at 14:34

Okay finally I've found out the reason myself.

"OpenLayers" works fine with Single Layers until they are not grouped twice (Child > Parent Groups).

The layers which are in "Landcover_Group", and then being "within Landcover_Group" are placed in "Road_Land" group, cannot be open with "OpenLayers".

The ones which are placed only in one group have no issues.
