How to configure AlternativeGeographicIdentifier in WFS-G


It´s possible to configure a WFS-G in order to search by more fields ? The second field  (AlternativeGeographicIdentifier ) not work.

Example web.config :

<feature ......

<GeographicIdentifier fieldName="Field1" />
                        <AlternativeGeographicIdentifier fieldName="Field2" />

Although we have configurate both field, only search with the Field1.

We test many ways  with different types of fields :varchar, number ... unsuccessfully.

it´s possible to configure it?

Thank you for help us,

Re: How to configure AlternativeGeographicIdentifier in WFS-G

Hi armartin,


The AlternativeGeographicIdentifier just pulls information from the same table record from the fieldName specified. If you want to search by more DB fields, the only way is to create a database view and combine the other fields into a single one.
