    QGIS – WFS Editing Not Saving - 1.png

    Question:

    When editing a WFS connection from GeoServer in QGIS, my edits are not saving, what is causing this?

    Answer:

    If you are connecting QGIS to a WFS layer hosted by GeoServer and when you try to save any edits you get an error message on saving –

    Could not commit changes to layer X Errors: ERROR: 1 geometries not changed.

    The issue could possibly be resolved by applying a Proxy Based URL in your GeoServer Global Settings.

    Login to GeoServer and choose the Global Settings

    In the Service Settings – Proxy Base URL – enter the URL of your GeoServer instance e.g.

    Now when you try editing your WFS layers, the save action should now successfully save the changes you have made in QGIS to the source data!
