Bug report #16902

GPKG table referenced by Id instead of layername

When you load a geopackage layer via Add Vector Layer, the table is referenced by it's ID
See Layer source in the layer properties, General Tab: my_gpkg.gpkg|*layerid*=8

This is an issue, because if one does a vacuum on the Geopackage, the layerid might change. In this case, your entire project might loose all layer references.

Contextual info: if you do: save layer as a geopackage, then the new added layer is referenced correctly by the tablename in the layer properties, general tab section: my_gpkg.gpkg|*layername*=my_layername

https://github.com/cmangeat should have a look at this issue next week, if we can provide a PR.

#2 Updated by Christophe Mangeat about 6 years ago

I was adviced to have a look at https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/4341 wich could have been a good basis for investigation (related issue, e.g.).

Didn't find a an angle of attack so far.
