Hi Jio,

I don't have documentation ready for this but it's possible to publish data
that is hosted in another database. This is how i do it - not sure if it's
the most correct way

The steps are:
1) In GeoServer, create a store pointing to the PostGIS database that has
the layers
2) In GeoServer, create and publish new layers that are contained inside
your new store
3) In your geonode machine, run the command `geonode updatelayers
--skip-geonode-registered`. This command will scan your GeoServer for new
layers that are not registered in GeoNode and publish them.
4) Fill in metadata / user / access permisison information for each new
layer created
