Hi All,

Greetings to everyone. I am Mapstore new user.
I have some questions for you:
1. How to add data stored in GeoServer into MapStore? When I tried to add data using WFS, there is red exclamation mark show data not properly loaded
2. If I have a PostgreSQL and PostGIS db, how I connect it to MapStore. I have tried to read documentation but looks like there is wrong information within it, example: replace geostore-database-ovr with postgres.properties but I do not see any file called geostore-database-ovr inside the folder.
3. If I want to show the layer based on attribute and display label, how to do that in MapStore?

Thank you.

Cheers,
Wendi

Hi,
sorry for the late response. 
1. This can happen for some reasons. I should see the request effective error in the network tab of the developer tools to see what happendd. WMS layers works instead?
2. The file is named geostore-datasource-ovr.properties and it is located in /WEB-INF/classes folder mapstore.war archive. We usually suggest to externalize this file by following the guide here, so you can edit the file outside the application and re-deploy future MapStore releases by overwriting the war file, keeping the configuration untouched. (Note: the database is used by mapstore to store users, roles, maps... GeoSpatial data in general is usually provided by a separated GeoServer). 
3. We usually delegate this to GeoServer. MapStore is more a client, that display data from WMS, WFS or other sources and allows to group them in map or create contents based on that data. In particular to display labels I suggest the WMS format, editing the style on GeoServer.
