global name 'get_user_model' is not defined

NameError at /project/reset_password_confirm/MTQ-4c8-65d880f1c28996091226/

global name 'get_user_model' is not defined
Request Method: POST
Django Version: 1.9.1
Exception Type: NameError
Exception Value:
global name 'get_user_model' is not defined
Exception Location: /root/django/studie/project/views.py in post, line 770
Python Executable: /usr/bin/python
Python Version: 2.7.9


views.py

from django.contrib.auth.models import User


line 770:

def post(self, request, uidb64=None, token=None, *arg, **kwargs):
UserModel = get_user_model()
....


Why does get_user_model() not work? Any suggestions?

Answer

You need to add the import to your views.py.

from django.contrib.auth import get_user_model
