I am new to GIS and geoserver. I am trying to add and modify imagemosaic layers to geoserver with geoserver rest api. Actually I could add the layers. But I have modify them with rest api while adding or after adding. The parameters I have to set is:

Layer name, srs handling, declared rss, background values, use jai image read

Can I set these values with rest api? If there is documentation about it i will read but I couldn't find any. And if we can set these values I have to solve out how?



You can do this via the REST interface by posting to the right URL as indicated here: http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/rest/api/coverages.html#workspaces-ws-coveragestores-cs-coverages-c-format

the new XML representation for the coverage layer. I would use the original one as a template to modify and post back to experiment.

As an alternative in java you can use the GeoServer-Manager as shown here: https://github.com/geosolutions-it/geoserver-manager/wiki/Managing-Mosaic-Layers



Take a look at the cURL API REST documentation :
