geoserver layer I have a vector layer in my GeoServer, which I want to publish on the web page.

layer with table When I open this layer manually from GeoServer, it shows the attribute table of the place/polygon, while clicking on the vector layer,

But I want to show it on web page, for doing so, I am using OpenLayers 6 (v6.4.3)

I have followed the instructions from following link

Example - WMS GetFeatureInfo (Tile Layer)

but the developer console on Chrome is showing just 1st row of the table just 1 row of table on web page instead of whole table

Where I am doing it wrong?

This is my HTML script for the web page,

    <html lang="en">  <!-- HTML opening tag -->

<!-- Head tag Starts Here -->
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

    <!-- Pointer events polyfill for old browsers, see https://caniuse.com/#feat=pointer -->
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/elm-pep"></script>

        .map {
          width: 100%;

     <!-- Import OpenLayers -->

This is my JavaScript for OpenLayers,

    window.onload = init;

function init(){

    //Geoserver layer 
    // wmsSource = indialayersource

    var indialayersource = new ol.source.TileWMS({
        url: "http://localhost:8080/geoserver/agrodss/wms",
        params: {"LAYERS":"agrodss:GFS_Forecast_Agromet_DSS_2020-12-02", "tiled": true},
        serverType: "geoserver"

    // wmsLayer = indialayer

    var indialayer = new ol.layer.Tile({
        source: indialayersource, 
        title: "ForAgrodss"

    // view = myview

    var myview = new ol.View({
        center: ol.proj.fromLonLat([80, 22]),
            zoom: 4.5, 
            maxZoom: 8,
            minZoom: 4,

      var map = new ol.Map({
        layers: [indialayer],
        target: 'js-map',
        view: myview,

      map.on('singleclick', function (evt) {
        document.getElementById('info').innerHTML = '';
        var myviewResolution = /** @type {number} */ (myview.getResolution());
        var url = indialayersource.getFeatureInfoUrl(
          {'INFO_FORMAT': 'text/html'}
        if (url) {
            .then(function (response) { return response.text(); })
            .then(function (html) {
              document.getElementById('info').innerHTML = html;
      map.on('pointermove', function (evt) {
        if (evt.dragging) {
        var pixel = map.getEventPixel(evt.originalEvent);
        var hit = map.forEachLayerAtPixel(pixel, function () {
          return true;
        map.getTargetElement().style.cursor = hit ? 'pointer' : '';

    // layer group
     baseLayerGroup = new ol.layer.Group({
        layers: [ 

    map.on('click', function(e){

  • We don't need to see the HTML you are using, but we do need to see the request being sent to GeoServer in the two cases.

  • If you want all the data, you'll need a WFS GetFeature request

  • @nmtoken wms getmap requests support a few vector formats too, containing all the desired attributes

  • @JGH, You are right I was forgetting vector tiles which give a generalized view of the data, but even with vector tiles a GetFeatureInfo request won't return all attributes. You'd need to access somehow from the GetMap response.

A GetFeatureInfo request will return only one feature unless you specify FEATURE_COUNT as a parameter. For example to allow a maximum of 10 features use

    var url = indialayersource.getFeatureInfoUrl(
      {'INFO_FORMAT': 'text/html',
       'FEATURE_COUNT': '10'}

Note too, that even if you set a high feature_count value, you still don't get all the features in the underlying dataset. The returned features are still those around the clicked location (pixel coordinate) in the returned GetMap image.

  • Thanks @Mike, Getting all the rows in table now. Commented Dec 15, 2020 at 14:30

Here is his I solved the issue:


If you want only certain attributes you can add: &propertyName=atribute1,atribute2
