Description

QGIS v2.18.9 - GeoJSON URLs can't be added and previous version *.qgs with them in 'break'


1) An example *.qgs file with six (6) GeoJSON 'layers' successfully tested in v2.8, v2.18.3, v2.18.6, v2.18.7 by multiple users on different networks (attached file: nldi_example_GeoJSON_connect_20170606.qgs)

2) however in 2.18.9

a) *.qgs file says "Unhandled layers will be lost", etc (see attached screenshot: qgis_latest_version.jpg)
b) trying to add to a be project file a GeoJSON URL that uses the protocol (e.g.,  https://cida.usgs.gov/nldi/nwissite/USGS-05429700/navigate/UT/wqp) that works in previous versions gives Invalid Data Source Error error (see attached screenshot: qgis_latest_version_individual.jpg)

Thanks in advance!

  • Subject changed from QGIS v2.18.9 - GeoJSON URLs can't be added and previous version *.qgs with them in 'break' to GeoJSON URLs (https) can't be added to projects in 2.18.9 (worked in previous 2.18 point releases)

Notes:

in the QGIS log you will see

2017-06-13T12:30:01 1 Data source is invalid (SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain)
2017-06-13T12:30:01 1 Data source is invalid (SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain)
2017-06-13T12:30:02 1 Data source is invalid (SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain)

2017-06-13T12:30:05 1 Data source is invalid (SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain)

so seems something related to the fact that this datasources comes via HTTPS and the certificates used in that sites.

Curiously in 2.18.9 on Linux the project (and the single datasources) open just fine.

What can you say to us about those https addresses certificates?
