Bug report #14589

Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 4 years ago

When connecting to a wms-service you get a fresh GetCapabilities response.

But the, when you try to add the layer to the map some old cached information about the service is used.

This is a behavior I cannot understand and it is very confusing. I guess it is a bug since I cannot find any reason to do it this way.

My guess is that the response is cached for usage together with the already added layers, but then it is important that a new layer gets added with the fresh getcapabilities response fetched when connecting last time.

The behavior now is very confusing and difficult to understand at first glance, so debugging to find it out is a nightmare.

Here is a post at the mailing list discussing this, including links to others who had the same problem.
