SystemViews inherits RestActionRoute and is only available for admin users. Calling it with GET returns the global default view and a list of roles in the system where each role can have a different default view. Calling the route with POST will update the location and layers of a view.


GET doesn't need/use any parameters. POST uses the following:

Name Type Description Required?
id Integer ID for view to update **true**
selectedLayers String Stringified JSON describing selectedLayers for the view like '[{id: 1}]' **true**
srs String The value must match the SRS of target view, otherwise update is canceled. **true**
north Double Latitude **true**
east Double Longitude **true**
zoom Integer Zoom level **true**
force Boolean Update isn't allowed if some of the selected layers is not accessible with guest user. Update can be forced by adding this parameter with 'true' as value **false**




    "viewId": 1,
    "roles": [{
        "name": "Guest",
        "id": 1,
        "viewId": 2
    }, {
        "name": "User",
        "id": 2
    }, {
        "name": "Admin",
        "id": 3
    "timestamp": "Tue Aug 12 17:07:49 EEST 2014"




If session expired/user is not admin:

    "error":"Admin only"

Selected layers contain one or more layers that are not accessible by guest user. Problematic layerIds are listed in info.selectedLayers as an array.

    "error": "Contains layers not available for guests",
    "info": {
        "selectedLayers": [142],
        "code": "guest_not_available"
