Bug report #17109

Adding WFS layer fails with "unexpected end of file"

Added by Fedor Baart over 5 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Category:Data Provider/OGR
Affected QGIS version:2.18.2 Regression?:No

I am trying to add the following WFS layer "https://waterwebservices.rijkswaterstaat.nl/services/distributielaagWFS/distributielaag_dbo" to a QGIS map. I use the following steps:

-> layer -> add layer -> wfs layer
Enter url of service above.
Click Connect

Popup with message: unexpected end of file.

Expected result:
Loaded map.

I have manually tried to run a getcapabilities request and I do get a proper response (with an eof at the end).
I have also downloaded the data using the ogr2ogr tool. This works fine. Also the ogrinfo gives proper metadata.
I have tried different WFS versions.

Can you confirm that this is a bug in QGIS?

QGIS version 2.18.2
Platform OSX 10.11.6
GDAL 2.1.2

Kind regards,

Fedor Baart

Just tested on 2.18.12 on Linux, no error message and if you force the service to 1.0 the layers are loaded (but the server is very slow).
