[gdal-dev] Converting fid from GeoJSON into GeoPackage

I believe this resolves my previous problem by the same. The indirect_sqlite dialect is not so handy in this case because it wants do download the whole collection from OAPIF.

So because OAPIF is sending data as GeoJSON there is no name for the FID column and it is obligatory to use ogr2ogr with "-preserve_fid" if the aim is to preserve FID.  I will see if there is something to improve with this in the documentation. I had some trouble with joining  edited data with the original because 15 million feature ids changed into counting numbers.

Automatic FID preservation requires that the source layer reports a non-empty column name for the FID column, which isn't the case of the GeoJSON driver. Mostly only SQL-based drivers will report a non-empty FID column name.

Take this GeoJSON

"type": "FeatureCollection",
"features": [{
"type": "Feature",
"geometry": {
"type": "Point",
"coordinates": [26.30578223, 60.26170791]

Ogrinfo knows the fid

Convert into a new GeoPackage and the native fid is lost
ogr2ogr -f gpkg one_feature.gpkg one_feature.json

Running the command with "-preserve_fid" keeps the native fid but according to ogr2ogr documentation https://gdal.org/programs/ogr2ogr.html that should not be needed:

"Use the FID of the source features instead of letting the output driver automatically assign a new one (for formats that require a FID). If not in append mode, this behavior is the default if the output driver has a FID layer creation option, in which case the name of the source FID column will be used and source feature IDs will be attempted to be preserved."

Is the error in the documentation or in the GeoJSON-GeoPackage conversion?
