WMS Bounding Box and Limits issue (TR 340554; STATUS)

I came  across trying to use a WMS- source like:

"h t t p ://geo5.service24.rlp.de/wms/verwaltungsgrenzen_rp.fcgi"

If I add the server to the WMS Servers in Microstation/Powerdraft Raster-manager and open the source I get a wrong
value for the bounding  box and i can not save the connection to a xwms file. The buttons "SAVE, "SAVE and ATTACH" are greyed out as long I keep the standards limits settings.

The message bar of Microstation shows: "Bounding box wrong for WMS Map" message

Is there something new, since TR340554 (post: http://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/f/19565/p/63762/213248#213248)

Or why do I have to set the limits to not using them?

  • Hi Frank,

    Are you using CONNECT Update 2?

    also could you please let me know what layer are you adding to the map in order to see the results?

    I tried to insert all the different layers and I do not see same coordinates in north and south.

    see the video:



  • Ok , I could reproduce the issue with Microstation SS4.

    is this the same version you are using Frank? Please confirm and I will log a Defect for this issue on latest V8i version.

  • Hi Frank,

    I filed Defect 538218:WMS raster does not work with URL geo5.service24.rlp.de/.../verwaltungsgrenzen_rp.fcgi no button available for saving or attaching images.


  • Frank,

    Can you try that attached settings?  They seem to work and you do not get the Boundary box is invalid message.
