I am setting up token authentication for a site using Django Restframework and need to be able to have a user download their token, however the catch is that they much only be able to download their token once (similar to the Amazon AWS model).
In other words; is there a native way to check if a user has been assigned a token in restframework?
you can do this:
from rest_framework.authtoken.models import Token from django.conf import settings token = Token.objects.create(user=settings.AUTH_USER_MODEL)
now you can just check if your given user has a token:
user_with_token = Token.objects.get(user=user)
if you just wanna see if the user has a token:
is_tokened = Token.objects.filter(user=user).exist() # Returns a boolean
if the entry exists it means the user has a token assigned to it. Reference: HERE
