    How to set spatial restrictions for WMS?

    For example, by administrative unit boundary.

    Hi Mati,

    Are you trying to request a subset of a WMS layer or serve out a subset of your data as WMS?

    I don't believe the OGC specification for WMS has the ability to filter map objects as part of a request, although some implementations do support this.

    As far as serving out a subset of your data using Spectrum you may be able to create a view in Spectrum Spatial and publish this as WMS, however it will be static so you would need to create a separate view for each administrative boundary and publish each one separately.

    We have 2 usecases:

    1. user (Local authority) must see only their own map in WMS service - for desktop etc.
    2. If we have authorized user, then there will be some specific layers, avaiable only for this users.

    How to resolve this kind of tasks on Spectrum Spatial?

    As far as I know all authenticated users can view all WMS layers, it has been a while since I looked at this so things may have changed.
