I have a "Python Init function" for the attribute form in QGIS, which is called when I add a new geometry.

I can access the geometry of the newly created feature like this

geom = feature.geometry()

Now, can I use this geometry in a PostGIS query, like for ST_Intersects?

Regards, tkr

and build the query to build a new geometry from that.
