The Global Setting page configures messaging, logging, character, and proxy settings for the entire server. Because such XML gwoserver contain a larger amount of data, and in turn requires a larger amount of bandwidth, it is recommended to use this option only for testing purposes. Verbose Exception Reporting returns service exceptions with full Java stack traces.

It writes to the GeoServer log file and offers one feveloper the most useful configuration options for debugging. When disabled, GeoServer returns single-line error messages.

When enabled, allows access to both global services and virtual services. When disabled, clients will only be able to access virtual services.

Disabling is useful if GeoServer is hosting a large amount of layers and you want to ensure that client always request limited layer lists. Disabling is also useful for security reasons. This setting determines how GeoServer will respond when a layer becomes inaccessible for some reason. By default, when a layer has an error for example, when the default style for the layer is deleteda service exception is printed as part of the capabilities document, making manal document invalid.

An administrator may prefer to configure GeoServer to simply omit the problem layer from the capabilities document, thus retaining the document integrity and allowing clients to connect to other published layers.

This is the default behavior.

Any layer errors will show up as Service Exceptions in the capabilities document, making it invalid. With this setting, GeoServer will elect simply to not describe the problem layer at all, removing it from the capabilities document, and preserving the integrity of the rest of the document.


Refers to the number of decimal places returned in a GetFeature response. Also useful in optimizing bandwidth. Specifies the global character encoding that will be used in XML responses. Default is UTF-8which is recommended for most users. GeoServer can have the capabilities documents report a proxy properly. Logging Profile corresponds to a log4j configuration file in the GeoServer data directory.

Apache log4j is a Java-based logging utility. By default, there are five logging profiles in GeoServer; additional customized profiles can be added by eeveloper the log4j file.

There are six logging levels used in the log itself.


The GeoServer logging profiles combine logging levels with specific server operations. The five pre-built logging profiles available on the global settings page are:. Standard output StdOut determines where a program writes its output data. In GeoServer, the Log to StdOut setting enables logging to the text terminal that initiated the program.

Sets the written output location for the logs. A log location may be a directory or a file, and can be specified as an absolute path e.

Relative paths are relative developee the GeoServer data directory. It will only log the initial part of the request though, since it has to store buffer everything that gets logged for use in the parts of GeoServer that use it normally.

This setting sets the size of this buffer, in characters.

A setting of 0 will disable the log buffer. Since these files are processed by GeoServer the facility could be used to access files on the server. GeoServer can cache datastore connections and schemas in memory for performance reasons. The cache size should generally be greater than the number of distinct featuretypes that are expected to be accessed simultaneously.

If possible, make this value larger than the total number of featuretypes on the server, but a setting too high may produce out-of-memory errors. On the other manuql, a value lower than the total number of your registered featuretypes may clear and reload the resource-cache more often, which can be expensive and e.


The default value for the Feature type cache size develo;er This configuration settings allows control of they type of file locking used when accessing the GeoServer Data Directory.

This setting is used to protected the GeoServer configuration from being corrupted by multiple parties editing simultaneously. Used to ensure individual configuration files cannot be modified by two ddveloper administration or REST sessions at the same time.

This parameter can be used to mute exception logging when doing REST operations and the requested Resource is not present. This default setting can be overridden by adding to a REST call the following parameter: This documentation is from an open source community project. While every reasonable effort is made to ensure it is correct, it is provided “as is” for reference only, with no guarantees that it is complete, accurate, or current.

Not all features, extensions, and plug-ins described within these docs are supported by Boundless.

Scroll to the bottom to ‘Report an Issue’. There are two options: The five pre-built logging profiles available on the global settings page are: This developer profile is recommended for active debugging of GeoServer. This developer profile is recommended for active debugging of GeoTools.

With such production level logging, only problems are written to the log geoserrver. This option is only useful with the application schema extensions. There are three options: No file locking is used.
