From the admin I see that you can allocate permissions to a user or a user group to :allow add, change or delete data from a model.
That is great, but I also need to allow a user or a user group to access or not a group of views. I have certain type of services on my web site so I want to allow some users to access a certain services (pages/views) but not others.
So how can I allow certain users/user groups access to certain views? Thank you!
Users that cannot add or change etc. a certain model, will not be able to see it in the admin.
If we are talking about your custom created views then you could create something which checks a user for a permission and returns a 404 if they do not have that permission. Permissions are linked to models and a group can be assigned various permissions.
You can add a permission to a model like this:
# myproject/myapp/models.py class MyModel(models.Model): class Meta: permissions = ( ('permission_code', 'Friendly permission description'), )
Then you can check a if a user has permission like this:
@user_passes_test(lambda u: u.has_perm('myapp.permission_code')) def some_view(request): # ...
Using permissions you can then easily add or remove them from users and groups simply using the admin interface.
