21.4. Using the Lambda Data Store in GeoServer


For general information on working with GeoMesa GeoServer plugins, see GeoServer Plugins.

From the main GeoServer page, create a new store by either clicking “Add stores” in the middle of the Welcome page, or anywhere in the interface by clicking “Data > Stores” in the left-hand menu and then clicking “Add new Store”.

If you have properly installed the GeoMesa Lambda GeoServer plugin as described in Installing GeoMesa Lambda in GeoServer, “Kafka/Accumulo Lambda (GeoMesa)” should be included in the list under Vector Data Sources. If you do not see this, check that you unpacked the plugin JARs into in the right directory and restart GeoServer.

On the “Add Store” page, select “Kafka/Accumulo Lambda (GeoMesa)”, and fill out the parameters. The parameters are described in Lambda Data Store Parameters.


To prevent GeoServer from participating in persistence of entries to Accumulo, you can set the lambda.expiry parameter to Inf

Click “Save”, and GeoServer will search your Accumulo table for any GeoMesa-managed feature types.
