The correct path is not documented anywhere in the GeoServer documents but I managed to guess it. The demo page of your GeoServer has a link to WMTS GetCapabilities:


BTW this GetCapabilities URL does not seem to be correct by the WMTS standard because it is lacking the mandatory parameter &SERVICE=WMTS.

The place to add the name of the workspace is after /geoserver/. Try this


I was also searching for how to access the WMTS service and found them listed with version numbers on the main page of your Geoserver (http://localhost:8080/geoserver/web) with links (see screenshot).

The WMTS link takes you to something like this:

Then for a specific workspace, you have to add the name between geoserver/ and /gwc, as user30184 wrote:

This is at least for Geoserver version 2.22.1, not sure for any older versions.
