Currently, on GN2, user details are stored in Redis. We need to migrate these to the new auth database (SQLite3) in order to be able to use that system.

As part of that migration, we need that any particular user's privileges be maintained across all the resources they have access to - in the best possible way.


  • In GN2 resources are owned by users, in GN3, resources are owned by groups
  • Resource owners can have a group created for them
  • A newly created groups (as above) will contain those users with privileges ONLY for the resources in the group
  • Any users with privileges that cross groups will be harder to handle, but are hopefully fewer
