Dear all,

is it possible to call the command

python manage.py updatelayers

from the admin interface of GeoNode?

I tried to make my own app and call the command through call_command() in a view but I got the error reported below.
My skill with Django are quite poor.. does anyone have already add the command to the admin interface?

I would like to update my layers to the Postgis store that I have already set in geoserver and then publish the layer from geoserver, finally call the command. I need to do the upload in this way due to the huge size of some layers that I can not upload directly from geonode.. seems it goes in timeout.. but maybe I'm wrong. Moreover I do not have access to the command line of the production VM where the geonode is installed.

thanks in advance,
