Is it possible add fields to the model from another app?

Hi all,

I used to Odoo (OpenERP) for some times. It provide a function "_inherit" that can add fields to the model from another module (app). Is it possible to do it in Django? Since I want to create a plugin to add some fields into the models instead of edit the original app inside.

Django keep me login feature is not working

I want a solution if any anyone can assist me.
When customer will login with Keep me logged in checked then session will not be expire, But if Keep me logged in is not checked then should expire as per bellow mentioned variable value.

So Now login without checked keep me logged in is working fine as we have set SESSION_SECURITY_WARN_AFTER and SESSION_SECURITY_EXPIRE_AFTER. And if keep me login is checked, I tried to disable by overriding above variable value or increase expire time using request.session.set_expiry(24*30*3600). But it is not working. Can you anyone advice how can I disable this expire time if keep me login is checked.

SESSION_SECURITY_EXPIRE_AFTER = EXPIRE_TIME + 180 June 7, 2017, 5:19 a.m. 0 Answer

Django Custom Field cleaning for Integer

I have this puzzling django form

Here is part of my handling the POST request

def getUpdataBet(request, name):


    elif request.method == 'POST':

         Bound_form = form_Net(request.POST, instance=obj)

         if Bound_form.is_valid():

                new_tag =

                return render(request, 'Account\Sucess.html', .........)


                 render(request, ......)


And my has this custom cleaning for the form page.


def clean_BetAccountBalance(self):

       Data = self.cleaned_data.get(BetAccountBalance)

       If Data > 800:

             raise forms.ValidationError("Value too Large")


               return data


My question is that, In my form page when i give a value greater than 800, it returns the validation error as usual. But when i input a value lesser than 800, the form page acts as bound_form.is_valid() is false

The most puzzling thing is that when i comment out the if and else statement, it works perfectly fine and returns the cleaned_data perfectly. Is it that you dont use an if statement in a custom clean method.? May 25, 2017, 2:51 p.m. 0 Answer 

Validation issue with my Form

 I have this puzzling issue with my forms. Here is my part of my handling the POST request.

elif request.method == 'POST':
        obj.BetAccountBalance += int(request.POST['BetAccountBalance'])
        bound_form = form_Net({'BetAccountBalance':obj.BetAccountBalance}, instance=obj)

        if bound_form.is_valid():
            new_tag =
            NetObj.AccountBal -= int(request.POST['BetAccountBalance'])
            return render(request, 'Account/Success.html', {'value':'Bet'})
            bound_form = form_Net(request.POST, instance=obj)
            context = {'NetObj':NetObj.AccountBal, 'form':bound_form, 'email':name}
            return render(request, template_name, context)


And here is my and it has a custom clean method for my IntegerField in my form

class TransferToMyBet(forms.ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = BetDetails
        fields = ['BetAccountBalance']

    def clean_BetAccountBalance(self):
        data = self.cleaned_data.get('BetAccountBalance')
        if data > 800:
              raise forms.ValidationError('Not Enough Money')
            return data

In my form page in the browser, when i give a value greater than 800, it raises the Validation error as expected. But when i give a value less than 800, the form page doesnt save. Infact it purely acts as if Bound_form.is_valid() is false.


Another thing is that, when i comment out the if statement in the custom clean method, It works perfectly fine. Does that mean that, if statement doesnt work well with an Integer custom field cleaning?

Django 1.5 + gunicorn - No module named website.wsgi?

I am taking over this django legacy project which was built on **1.5.12**. I have no idea why they decided to remove from the project. So I am trying to put it back it.

    import os
    # We defer to a DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE already in the environment. This breaks
    # if running multiple sites in the same mod_wsgi process. To fix this, use
    # mod_wsgi daemon mode with each site in its own daemon process, or use
    # os.environ["DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE"] = "website.settings"
    os.environ.setdefault("DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE", "website.settings")

Please help

This is a copy of my question in stackoverflow, please help.


I am making a django application where it will have 2 apps. When you open it will use from app A, but when you open it will use from app B

This is the from the main project:
    urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^tinymce/', include('tinymce.urls')),
    url(r'^filer/', include('filer.urls')),
    url(r'^ckeditor/', include('ckeditor_uploader.urls')),

I was planning to add something like this to that file:

    if settings.CURRENT_HOST_IP == '':
        urlpatterns += url(r'^', include('webname_id.urls')),
        urlpatterns += url(r'^', include('webname_uk.urls')),

That way, it will simply use the urls from the app that is being used, depending on the current www you are entering the site with.

So my project have 1 backend admin, but multiple front-end templates and urls. The problem is i can't figure out how to set CURRENT_HOST_IP in the,

Usually i use this to get the current IP / host the user is using:

But i can't access the request object in

logging-in into a webpage using our LDAP credentials in django using django_auth_ldap module

I am using django_auth_ldap module to authenticate LDAP users who are logging into my web page.

Edited my file as per the document

import ldap
from django_auth_ldap.config import LDAPSearch, GroupOfNamesType

# Baseline configuration.

AUTH_LDAP_BIND_DN = "cn=django-agent,dc=example,dc=com"
AUTH_LDAP_USER_SEARCH = LDAPSearch("ou=users,dc=example,dc=com",
    ldap.SCOPE_SUBTREE, "(uid=%(user)s)")
# or perhaps:
# AUTH_LDAP_USER_DN_TEMPLATE = "uid=%(user)s,ou=users,dc=example,dc=com"

# Set up the basic group parameters.
AUTH_LDAP_GROUP_SEARCH = LDAPSearch("ou=django,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com",
    ldap.SCOPE_SUBTREE, "(objectClass=groupOfNames)"
AUTH_LDAP_GROUP_TYPE = GroupOfNamesType(name_attr="cn")

# Simple group restrictions
AUTH_LDAP_REQUIRE_GROUP = "cn=enabled,ou=django,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com"
AUTH_LDAP_DENY_GROUP = "cn=disabled,ou=django,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com"

# Populate the Django user from the LDAP directory.
    "first_name": "givenName",
    "last_name": "sn",
    "email": "mail"

    "employee_number": "employeeNumber"

    "is_active": "cn=active,ou=django,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com",
    "is_staff": "cn=staff,ou=django,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com",
    "is_superuser": "cn=superuser,ou=django,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com"

    "is_awesome": "cn=awesome,ou=django,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com",

# This is the default, but I like to be explicit.

# Use LDAP group membership to calculate group permissions.

# Cache group memberships for an hour to minimize LDAP traffic

# Keep ModelBackend around for per-user permissions and maybe a local
# superuser.

I want clarification on few things. i,e to get a login page and to authenticate the logged in LDAP user:

  1. login url, login view, html template for login page should be created explicitly" ??
  2. If they are autogenerated, how can we get the username and password entered by user and search for the same using AUTH_LDAP_USER_SEARCH.
