I've originally posted this issue here #8491

When you add a WMS layer in a QGIS project to use it in QGIS server, you lose original information from GetFeatureInfo and GetLegendGraphic.
In QGIS Web Client (or any other client) you'll only have the name of the layer in the legend popup and you'll get no information popup at all.
In QGIS Desktop it is impossible to override legends or feature information so I think the original GetFeatureInfo and GetLegendGraphic should be transmitted to client when querying WMS layers through QGIS server.

Am I the only one interested in this bug? I miss the possibility to add external WMS layers to my projects and to have the original GetFeatureInfo and GetLegendGraphic responses.

We too as an organisation would like to have these features. Especially the GetFeatureInfo is important. More and more information is provided through WMS, so this becomes more and more important.
When it is not possible, as it is now, we have to have the info as a shapefile (or other), and there is more maintenance.

Cloudservices as QGisCloud then would become more usefull(and so handy and time-saving, just upload the existing Qgs-project!) instead of our expensive ArcGisServer..

We're also interested in this feature. We have a lot of external GIS data available as WMS and being able to identify those layers in the QGis Web Client would be a big plus.
