I’ve created a Managed PostgreSQL Database with the Postgis extension. It creates the spatialrefsys table with the list of supported reference projections for spatial queries. I need to add a new projection to spatialrefsys but it gives the error: permission denied for table spatialrefsys. I’ve used the doadmin user to create the extension and the table spatialrefsys is owned by postgres user. I can’t change the ownership, neither the permissions. How can I do that with my user privileges?

  • I’ve also run into the same issue. I need to add a custom projection, but I don’t have permissions to INSERT into the spatial_ref_sys table.

    doadmin does not have super user privileges, so I’m unable to grant the relevant permissions over the table or change its ownership.

    I’d appreciate some guidance on how to do this - is it even possible?
