WMS - getmap for group layer or whole service

Question asked by GISUK_at_RWE on Jan 28, 2016

Hi there,

I have set up a service with WMS capabilities that contains several layers that should feed in an external application. As the content and order  of the layers may change in the future, the implementation in the external application by referencing single layers (e.g. ...Request=GetMap&Layers=1,3,4,5,6...) would not be an option.


I have already implemented a group layer nesting all layers of the service. Unfortunately this group layer can't be addresses in a getMap request as it does not contain a name Tag when published with AGS. Is there a chance to configure an AGS WMS in a way that group layers gets accessible with a get map request to avoid the single layers requests? Cahing would not be an option as the service contains dynamic data.


Thanks a lot for a hint
