In Django, how do I check if a user is in a certain group?

I created a custom group in Django's admin site.

In my code, I want to check if a user is in this group. How do I do that?

Answer

You can access the groups simply through the groups attribute on User.

from django.contrib.auth.models import User, Group

group = Group(name="Editor")
group.save()                  # save this new group for this example
user = User.objects.get(pk=1) # assuming, there is one initial user 
user.groups.add(group)        # user is now in the "Editor" group

then user.groups.all() returns [<Group: Editor>]
