Dedicated GeoServer is urgently needed in the new SDI_Lab VRE.
The expected instance should be similar to geoserver-tunaatlas.d4science.org, so I assume provision might be done cloning said VM, removing SG installation (i.e. gCube user) and perform ansible tasks to reconfigure it..
NB : data spaces need to be cleared as well.
Suggested name : geoserver-sdi_lab.d4science.org

Questions. Do we need to run it behind the load balancer as we to for the tunaatlas services to have URLs like
The tunaatlas geoserver uses a jndi pool to connect to the database. Do we need to use a pool or a 'standard' connection, configured by the geoserver admin?

- % Done changed from 50 to 90
- Status changed from In Progress to Feedback
The geoserver is running at http://geoserver-sdi-lab.d4science.org/geoserver/web/
Can you check? The SSL certificate will be available in the next days.

For this Geoserver, https is not yet available apparently... can we get it?
A certificate request is submitted every day, but because of the letsencrypt.org limits will need to wait for 2 or 3 days at least. That's not under our control.

In addition, we would also need a SFTP access to geoserver data directory...
@firstname.lastname@example.org just to double check : REST interface of data-transfer service is available on the instance and configured to operate on geoserver's data directory, so you can use that to retrieve and store files in it. Is SFTP access still needed?
For completeness :
here a GET request for the subfolder gwc (absolute path would be "/srv/geoserver_data/gwc" here is "geoserver/gwc" being "geoserver" a configurable placeholder) with optional flag "descriptor" for JSON representation - NB needs your token - :

Yes, it's still needed; They are 2 different things. SFTP is required for the same arguments as for the VREs, we need to be able to arrange geoserver data dirs subsystems and o cleaning operation that we can't do through REST API. This is particularly needed in this context as about 30 newcomers will learn how to use the REST API, so I need behind the capacity to interven on the file system of geoserver.

Hi @email@example.com apparently the SSL certificate was requested 13 days ago, do you know if we can get one quickly, the workshop started already, ideally we should get it this afternoon. Tomorrow 30 people will have to work with geoserver, and we would like to have it through the VRE as unique endpoint for users. Thanks in advance

Hello @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com , yesterday i've been struggling with this geoserver while testing the REST API. First I've realized the version is not the same as the other geoserver requested (2.10.5 and not 2.10.0). Is it possible for you to quickly deploy 2.10.0 instead on this component? and check the configuration of the data directory, in comparison with the Aquaculture atlas (http://geoserver-aquacultureatlas.d4science.org/geoserver/).
At that time, it is impossible to use the API for pushing shapefiles in data directory, but for this I need 2.10.0 for the sake of the training, as later versions might have changed things, and I know 2.10.0 is ok since we are push well shapefiles in aquaculture atlas
Please let me know ASAP, as the training is today :-), thanks a lot for your help there
