2. How to restrict access to parts of Django admin?

You can enable and restrict access to specific parts of Django admin using the permission system. When a model is added, by default, Django creates three permissions. add, change and delete

Admin uses these permissions to decide access for users. For a user with is_superuser=False, and no permissions, the admin looks like this


If you add a permission user.user_permissions.add(Permission.objects.get(codename="add_hero")), the admin starts looking like this


You can add more complex logic to restrict access by changing these methods:

def has_add_permission(self, request):

def has_change_permission(self, request, obj=None):

def has_delete_permission(self, request, obj=None):

def has_module_permission(self, request):
