[GeoNode-devel] How to apply Geonode permissions for Postgres database access? For Tableau etc

Hi all

Visualisation software like Tableau can get data from remote databases including Postgres. I've verified that works in our Geonode, with just a couple of config changes in Postgres.

But how do I allow Tableau users to access layers from Postgres while honouring Geonode's Django-level 'Download' permission?

Do I have to duplicate Geonode's users and access controls as Postgres users and privileges?

This could be done generically ...is there a tool for that?

Or is there a better way to expose Geonode data to Tableau? (I've just given their sales people a serve for supporting 32 flavours of commercial database but not one International Standard like WFS...).
