Best way to access Omnibus Postgres Data remotely

We are currently using Gitlab Starter edition (omnibus based). One of our Business Intelligence developers would like to access the Postgres server of in order to extract information that isnt normally available via API’s and get these information into our Company dashboard.

I originally thought of configuring the postgres server included omnibus to allow connections via TCP/IP but i just want to check the community if there is another. according to the docs:

doing so can cause certain non-critical scripts to misbehave. so im having second thoughts.

Question: is this the best way how to get info from the DB? or what are the alternatives?

I’ve been reading about plugins but seems like info on its capabilities is quite sparse.

Hi! Were you able to access the DB? If so, how did you manage to?

Thank you!
