Release crafted for the GeoGrandEst project, with contributions from other SDIs and individuals (mostly @landryb and @jusabatier).
Thank you all for your continuous support !

Major highlights:

  • Console webapp (formerly ldapadmin) overhauled, allows granting limited administration rights to a selection of users.
  • GeoServer updated to 2.12
  • GeoNetwork 3.4: a better overall integration

New features:

  • console - delegation of rights to a selection of users. SDI administrators can allow any LDAP user to manage a selection of roles in a selection of orgs.
  • console - emails sent upon user registration now dynamically target LDAP users with roles SUPERUSER or ORGADMIN. If a pending user has filled the org field and a valid delegation is registered with this org, users with the delegation will be able to moderate the incoming user. #1981
  • console - map fits vector data extent #2052
  • console - supports more languages (german & spanish translations added) #1965
  • console - reCAPTCHA upgraded to V2 version #1928
  • mapfishapp - allows direct vector layer download if WFS service advertises expected formats #1909 #1929
  • mapfishapp - the "extract layer" menu action is displayed when the extractor addon is loaded #1909
  • geonetwork - several metadata can now be sent at once to viewer & extractor #1809


  • console - roles can be renamed #2025
  • console - logs displayed using international date format #1988

  • all - disable directory listing on jetty #2115


  • the extractorapp user interface was removed in favor of the viewer addon named "extractor"
  • docker-compose files have been removed from the sources repository. They
    belong to the georchestra/docker repository.
  • console - browsing roles as a tree was not a good idea ! It's now replaced with favorite roles, which are shared between users allowed to manage users within the console.
  • local maven has been removed, in favor of the one provided by distributions, see #2060
  • The ability to override webapp files throught the use of the config module (and template config) was removed for the console, mapfishapp, extractorapp & header, see #1417. This is still work in progress at the current time of writing for other modules.

  • travis-ci service integration, with improved test coverage,
  • lighter artifacts.

Other enhancements include:

  • mapfishapp: redirect to iD as OSM editor - see #992,
  • mapfishapp: gml & kml export of results - see #995,
  • mapfishapp: the admin may restrict all metadata searches to a specific extent, while the user may now restrict his search to the current map extent - see #964,

As said previously, the documentation was improved in order to reflect the most recent project changes.
Most notably, it is now in line with the "3 tomcats"-based setup that drives the template configuration since geOrchestra 14.06.
It also includes an interesting "how to upgrade your config" generic guide (that you should read, and maybe contribute to !).

config changes

We introduced a new global config option: shared.url.scheme which defaults to http.
Set to https (along with shared.server.port to 443) if your SDI requires it. Do not forget to also change the base url of GeoServer and GeoNetwork in their respectives admin GUI.

In mapfishapp's GEOR_custom.js:

  • the WMS_SERVERS, WMTS_SERVERS, WFS_SERVERS config options have been removed. The server definitions are now loaded via separate XHR's. You should migrate your content into the newly introduced myprofile/mapfishapp/*.json files.
  • CONTEXT_LOADED_INDICATOR_DURATION was added to handle the "context loaded" popping down indicator duration. It defaults to 5 seconds. Set to 0 to disable the indicator.
  • CONTEXTS was an array of arrays. It is now an array of objects.

Eg, in 14.06:

    ["OpenStreetMap", "app/img/contexts/osm.png", "default.wmc", "A unique OSM layer"], 

From 14.12 on:

    label: "OpenStreetMap",
    thumbnail: "app/img/contexts/osm.png",
    wmc: "default.wmc",
    tip: "A unique OSM layer",
    keywords: ["OpenStreetMap", "Basemap"]
}, {

Also, the print templates have been improved.
If you made changes to the previous templates, you have to migrate them, or you may also keep your older templates.

In extractorapp's GEOR_custom.js, several new javascript config options have been added, related to #726: SUPPORTED_RESOLUTIONS, DEFAULT_RESOLUTION, METADATA_RESOLUTION_XPATH. Make sure your configuration is up to date with the template configuration, or you will get these variable defaults.

Note also the addition of an excluded directory in the template configuration. The content of this directory will be ignored when creating the configuration jar, which is deployed in each webapp. This is a convenient way to store scripts and so on, versioned with your configuration.

new repositories

We decided to publish resources for your server "htdocs" folder.
Have a look at our georchestra/htdocs repository to get some inspiration.

As you may know, since geOrchestra 14.06, we recommend to start from our minimal GeoServer "data dir", rather than using GeoServer's default.
For the 14.12 release, we also decided to publish a minimal GeoNetwork data dir too !

apache configuration

In geOrchestra's security proxy, there's an OGC proxy which we use to circumvent browser's same origin policy.
To prevent anyone to use this proxy (see #755), we recommend to restrict access to the proxy by checking the request Referer header, eg for apache <= 2.2 with:

SetEnvIf Referer "^http://my\.sdi\.org/" mysdi
<Proxy http://localhost:8180/proxy/*>
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from env=mysdi

There's also another improvement when your SDI is not globally accessed through https: securing your communications to the ldapadmin webapp through the following:

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/ldapadmin/?.*$
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R=301,L]

This can also be used to secure other modules, eg analytics, downloadform...


If you experience build issues, please clear your local maven repository (rm -rf ~/.m2/repository/), then try again.

Our continuous integration process now checks every day that all geOrchestra modules (including GeoFence) build smoothly.
We also make sure that the following geoserver extensions are compatible: app-schema, authkey, charts, control-flow, css, csw, dds, dxf, feature-aggregate, feature-pregeneralized, geosearch, gdal, imagemap, inspire, istyler, kml, libjpeg-turbo, mysql, ogr, pyramid, script, spatialite, xslt, wps, w3ds. They can be integrated in your geoserver deployment by adding them in the build command line, eg with

./mvn -Dserver=template -Dmaven.test.skip=true -Pgeofence -Pcontrol-flow,css,csw,gdal,inspire,kml,libjpeg-turbo,ogr,pyramid,spatialite,wps,w3ds clean install

The way geOrchestra is configured has been streamlined:

  • there are default parameters which are shared by several modules, in config/shared.maven.filters. A "standard" install should not require you to bother about them. But if your setup is different from the default one, you may have to copy one or more of theses properties into your own shared maven filters (read on), in order to be able to customize them.
  • there are also shared parameters which have to be customized for your own instance. These can be found in the build_support/shared.maven.filters file inside your own configuration directory. As your config dir inherits from the template config dir, it should be very similar to georchestra/template:build_support/shared.maven.filters. The shared maven filters from this file override those from config/shared.maven.filters
  • finally, there are parameters for every individual geOrchestra module (geoserver, geofence, mapfishapp, extractorapp, proxy, ldapadmin), which can be customized via the build_support/GenerateConfig.groovy file in your own config dir. Have a look at the one provided by the template config for an example: georchestra/template:build_support/GenerateConfig.groovy.

As a result, a "standard geOrchestra configuration" should not require you to edit more than 2 files: one for the shared parameters, and an other one for module-specific parameters.
Note: copying maven.filter files in your own configuration dir (which was an older practice) is not anymore recommended because it is very difficult to maintain when upgrading version.
=> you should remove any maven.filter file from your own configuration, and eventually copy the values you had customized into build_support/GenerateConfig.groovy


The "Jetty Maven2" Repository provided by oss.sonatype.org requires HTTPS now. The fix was pushed to the georchestra and geonetwork repositories, but in the mean time, your /home/$USER/.m2 local repository might have gotten corrupted with html files rather than jars. If you experience compilation errors, you might need to clean your local maven repo, by running rm -rf ~/.m2/repository/org/apache/maven

Upgrading your build is a 2-steps process.
Let's assume your local geOrchestra source code repository is located in /path_to_georchestra_root/.

First you have to update the sources from the remote origin and update yours:

cd /path_to_georchestra_root/
git fetch origin
git checkout 14.06
git submodule sync
git submodule update --init

Then you need to update your configuration directory to align it with the template configuration, branch 14.06.

In the following, we assume that your configuration directory is versioned with git, and has the geOrchestra template config set as "upstream" remote repository:

cd /path_to_georchestra_root/config/configuration/<yours>
git fetch upstream
git merge upstream/14.06

Then you'll probably have to fix some conflicts.
Note: if you do not know how to fix these conflicts, you're probably better off starting again with a fresh fork of the template config directory.

The build process remains unchanged, but there is a difference at the end.
In the previous releases, the artifacts included a "-private" suffix in their name. We were making the assumption that all WARs would be deployed to the same tomcat.
This is not the case anymore. This implies that the security proxy now resides in a different servlet container than the proxied webapps. If this is not your case, juste rename them back with the "-private" suffix.


The LDAP repository holds branches for the 13.09, 14.01 and 14.06 releases.
In 13.09, groups are instances of posixGroup. From 14.01 on, they are instances of groupOfNames.

Between 14.01 and 14.06 branches, here are the differences:

  • the MOD_EXTRACTORAPP group was created. You should assign to it the users which already had access to extractorapp (typically members of SV_USER)
  • the privileged geoserver user ("shared.privileged.geoserver.user") was renamed from extractorapp_privileged_admin to geoserver_privileged_user because it is no more used only for the extractor.


In this release, the GeoNetwork database was merged into the unique default georchestra database.
It is now a schema inside the main database.

This change requires that a "geonetwork" db user is created and granted rights:

createuser -SDRIP geonetwork (the expected password for the default config is "www-data")
psql -d georchestra -c 'CREATE SCHEMA geonetwork;'
psql -d georchestra -c 'GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON SCHEMA geonetwork TO "geonetwork";'

The full migration process is described in #601/comment.
This link also provides hints if you prefer to keep your existing 2-databases setup.

Native libs:

The GDAL java bindings (gdal.jar) are no more provided by webapps, because this can lead to issues when the native libs are loaded several times in the same servlet container.
Instead, the bindings should be installed once and for all in a folder accessible by the servlet container.

Please refer to the documentation relative to native libs handling in geOrchestra, section "Tomcat configuration"

Shared maven filters:

Several previous shared maven filters have been removed because they were not truly shared between modules:

  • shared.mapfishapp.docTempDir
  • shared.geofence.*
  • shared.checkhealth.*

You'll find the exact same settings in build_support/GenerateConfig.groovy

shared.geonetwork.dir was removed because it was useless

Seevral shared maven filters were homogeneized:

  • shared.psql.ogc.statistics.db becomes shared.ogc.statistics.db
  • shared.psql.download_form.db -> shared.download_form.db
  • shared.psql.geonetwork.db -> shared.geonetwork.db
  • shared.ldapadmin.db
  • shared.geofence.db

Finally, geonetwork.language was renamed into shared.geonetwork.language


If you're using ldapadmin, make sure you've setup ReCaptcha keys for your own domain.
Hint: search for privateKey in your GenerateConfig.groovy.

French projections (typically EPSG:2154) have been removed from the extractorapp and mapfishapp config files.
Be sure to check your GEOR_custom.js files if you need them.

mapfishapp: GEONETWORK_URL was renamed into GEONETWORK_BASE_URL.
Caution: the expected string for this config option has changed too: from eg. "http://geobretagne.fr/geonetwork/srv/fre" to: "http://geobretagne.fr/geonetwork".

  • As a result of #569, LDAP groups are now groupOfNames instances rather than posixGroup instances. You have to migrate your LDAP tree, according to the following procedure (please change the dc=georchestra,dc=org string for your own base DN):

    • dump your ldap groups with:
    ldapsearch -H ldap://localhost:389 -xLLL -D "cn=admin,dc=georchestra,dc=org" -w your_ldap_password -b "ou=groups,dc=georchestra,dc=org" > /tmp/groups.ldif
    • migration:
    sed -i 's/\(memberUid: \)\(.*\)/member: uid=\2,ou=users,dc=georchestra,dc=org/' /tmp/groups.ldif
    sed -i 's/posixGroup/groupOfNames/' /tmp/groups.ldif
    sed -i '/gidNumber/d' /tmp/groups.ldif OR sed -i 's/gidNumber/ou/' /tmp/groups.ldif if geofence is deployed
    sed -i 's/objectClass: groupOfNames/objectClass: groupOfNames\nmember: uid=fakeuser/' /tmp/groups.ldif
    • drop your groups organizationalUnit (ou)
    • optionally, have a look at the provided georchestra-memberof.ldif file, which creates & configures the memberOf overlay. As root, and after checking that the file targets the correct database (olcDatabase={1}hdb by default): ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:// < georchestra-memberof.ldif
    • import the updated groups.ldif file.
  • analytics: the ExtJS submodule path has changed, be sure to run git submodule update --init when you switch branches.

  • databases: the downloadform, ogcstatistics and ldapadmin databases are now merged into a single one named "georchestra". Each webapp expects to find its tables in a dedicated schema ("downloadform" for the downloadform module, "ogcstatistics" for ogc-server-statistics, and "ldapadmin" for ldapadmin). See #535 for the complete patch. If you currently have one dedicated database for each module, you can keep your setup, provided you customize the shared.psql.ogc.statistics.db, shared.psql.download_form.db & shared.ldapadmin.db maven filters in your own config. In any case, you'll have to rename the download schema (of the previous downloadform database) into downloadform, and migrate the tables which were in the public schema of the databases ogcstatistics and ldapadmin into the newly created schemas.

Example migration script:

psql -d downloadform -c 'alter schema download rename to downloadform;'

wget https://raw.github.com/georchestra/georchestra/14.01/ldapadmin/database.sql -O /tmp/ldapadmin.sql
psql -d ldapadmin -f /tmp/ldapadmin.sql
psql -d ldapadmin -c 'GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON SCHEMA ldapadmin TO "www-data";'
psql -d ldapadmin -c 'GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA ldapadmin TO "www-data";'
psql -d ldapadmin -c 'GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON ALL SEQUENCES IN SCHEMA ldapadmin TO "www-data";'
psql -d ldapadmin -c 'insert into ldapadmin.user_token (uid, token, creation_date) select uid, token, creation_date from public.user_token;'
psql -d ldapadmin -c 'drop table public.user_token;'

wget https://raw.github.com/georchestra/georchestra/14.01/ogc-server-statistics/database.sql -O /tmp/ogcstatistics.sql
psql -d ogcstatistics -f /tmp/ogcstatistics.sql
psql -d ogcstatistics -c 'GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON SCHEMA ogcstatistics TO "www-data";'
psql -d ogcstatistics -c 'GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA ogcstatistics TO "www-data";'
psql -d ogcstatistics -c 'GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON ALL SEQUENCES IN SCHEMA ogcstatistics TO "www-data";'
psql -d ogcstatistics -c 'insert into ogcstatistics.ogc_services_log (id, user_name, date, service, layer, request, org) select id, user_name, date, service, layer, request, org from public.ogc_services_log;'
psql -d ogcstatistics -c 'drop table public.ogc_services_log;'
  • download form: the module is disabled by default (shared.download_form.activated=false). Be sure to set the value you want in your shared.maven.filters file.
  • extractorapp:
    • BUFFER_VALUES has changed. If you had a custom value in your GEOR_custom.js file, you have to modify it according to the new syntax.
    • the geobretagne_production env variable has been removed - see #97
  • geoserver: be sure to set the file.encoding tomcat option for geoserver to interpret correctly UTF-8 SLDs (read how).
  • ldapadmin:
    • accessing /ldapadmin/privateui/ is now restricted to members of the MOD_LDAPADMIN group. It is recommended that only members of the ADMINISTRATOR or SV_ADMIN administrative groups belong to MOD_LDAPADMIN, since this group allows privileges escalation.
    • new shared.ldapadmin.db parameter to specify the ldapadmin database name (defaults to "georchestra").
    • the ldapadmin private app is now accessed via /ldapadmin/privateui/ rather than /ldapadmin/privateui/index.html
  • mapfishapp:
    • geonames now require you to create an account in order to enable queries on their free web services (see #563). Please change the default account in your profile's GEOR_custom.js GEONAMES_FILTERS variable.
    • addons: custom addons relying on local web services should no longer assume that the application path is /mapfishapp. Instead, they should use the new GEOR.config.PATHNAME constant, eg here.
    • the app now requires a dedicated database schema, please refer to the INSTALL.md documentation.
    • new config option: SEND_MAP_TO for #443, please read the doc.
    • new config option: FORCE_LOGIN_IN_TOOLBAR
    • the NS_EDIT config option has been removed, and mapfishapp/edit is no longer routed. By default, all layers served by the platform geoserver are editable (see GEOR.custom.EDITABLE_LAYERS), provided the user has the rights to (defaults to members of ROLE_ADMINISTRATOR, see GEOR.custom.ROLES_FOR_EDIT).
    • the contexts referenced in your GEOR.custom.CONTEXTS array are now able to reference layers with their full attribution information (text, logo & link). Have a look at the provided default.wmc.
    • print: some parameters have changed when the print module was updated: maxIconWidth -> iconMaxWidth, maxIconHeight -> iconMaxHeight (see e6231c).
  • ogcservstatistics - disabled by default: shared.ogc.statistics.activated=false. Be sure to set the value you want in your shared.maven.filters file.
  • static: the "static" module has been renamed into "header": your deployment scripts must be adapted, as well as your apache2 configuration (or any other reverse proxy).
