It seems complex features do not work with postgis views, because they do not have a primary key. I receive this error when requesting wfs data:

<ows:ExceptionReport xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:ows="http://www.opengis.net/ows/1.1" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="2.0.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/ows/1.1">
<ows:Exception exceptionCode="NoApplicableCode">
<ows:ExceptionText>java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException: Index: 0, Size: 0 Index: 0, Size: 0</ows:ExceptionText>

Has somebody a successful experience with PostGIS views as a complex feature data source?


You need to add a primary key metadata table as described in the manual to tell GeoServer which column to use as your primary key.

  • Thank you very much. Views work now.
