Datapunt authorization

Project description

Interface to authorization logic in the backend of Amsterdam’s (Netherlands) open data distribution platform, [Datapunt](

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.


$ pip install datapunt-authorization

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


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


Activate your virtualenv, install the egg in editable mode, and start coding:

$ source env/bin/activate
$ pip install -e .


make test
