As a metasearch user
I want to access entries in catalogues that include a full GetCapabilities URL
So that these types of URLS don't fail and I can view a WMS or other OGC service within QGIS

  1. Given this internal catalogue: http://INTRANET/geonetwork/srv/csw
  2. And a keyword search of "WMS"
  3. Resulting in a record entry with: http://INTRANET/arcgis/services/D01/0cb80e79-11df-4772-b7bd-f0ed2902cdb5/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS
    #Reults in the following error:
    WMS Provider
    The server you are trying to connect to does not seem to be a WMS server. Please check the URL.
    OK   Hide Details...   
  4. when you enter URL with double params (created by Metasearch) you also get the error

Likely issue is in metasearch sending OWSLib an invild URL because the catalogue maintains the full GetCap string. Not sure if best to fix in Metasearch or OWSLIB.

Due to various business rules the actual GetCap request is managed in the catalogue.

Implemented in 2.14 branch, 2.18 branch and master. Will be available on the next plugin release of MetaSearch or 2.14.13/2.18.5 on 24 March 2017 (whatever comes first)
