Interface to authorization logic in the backend of Amsterdam’s (Netherlands) open data distribution platform, [Datapunt](http://data.amsterdam.nl).

In Datapunt authorization levels associated with users are stored in a central database. When a user accesses a resource she needs to provide a cryptographically secure token. That token contains the user’s authorization level. The resource in turn uses that information to decide what information the user can access.

Install

$ pip install datapunt-authorization

In order to use this library you need to have access to a Postgress database.

Usage

import authorization
import authorization_levels  # pip install datapunt-authorization-levels

authzmap = authorization.AuthzMap(**psycopgconf)

if authzmap['myuser'] == authorization_levels.LEVEL_EMPLOYEE:
        ...  # do some eployee-e things
