00057: Layer name contains invalid characters

You are sharing a map image layer or web imagery layer with a WMS layer or WCS capability turned on. A layer in the map or selection of layers being shared has a name that contains URL or XML reserved characters that are invalid for use with WMS or WCS.

Solutions

  • Rename the layer so that it does not include any URL or XML reserved characters.
  • If you are sharing a WMS layer, you can choose not to use layer names. You can use zero-based integers to identify layers by unchecking Use layer names from the map in the WMS layer configuration.
