As a reference, this one describes how Geoserver is doing it

Metadata table is used to handle a couple of more things with PostGIS
and Oracle but the main point with PostGIS and fids is to tell the
table/view name and the column or a list of columns to be used for
generating fids.
Tinyows could perhaps do it in a rather simple way for the user,
something like this for publishing a read-only view with a combined
unique fid

<layer retrievable="1"
         title="French Administrative Sub Boundaries (IGN - GeoFLA
Departements)" />
