I'm trying to publish data on GeoServer.
I'm using Postgres/PostGIS and I've used osm2pgsql to load the data into the database.
I've configured a store correctly (I can see the tables from the database listed when I add a new layer and choose the store).
However when I go to add a new layer, what I see is different to the manual at geoserver (refer Publishing a PostGIS Table). The point that is different is the "Create a Layer" section, step 3 and 4. On step 3 it states the following:
From the New Layer chooser drop-down menu, select
I choose the data store and then get the list of layer names in the form:
The above screen shot is different to the doco for point 4. The doco for point 4 is as follows:
While I expect the names to be different, the problem is that none of the names are selectable. The only text that is selectable is
Publish. It's slightly confusing, partly because I've not been able to find any example specific to what I'm trying to do, so I've had a lot of missteps along the way and have learnt the hard way not to make any presumptions.
My question is: is the
Publish action against each table the same as the selectable text in the doco?
My concern is that I don't want to accidentally publish all the data in a table.
