But now, we will discuss about how to get registered on that system. Furthermore, we will discuss about login system.

User Model

To register on Django site, first of all you need to understand about User Model. Now we will discuss about how to use Django’s built in tools to create user authorization models.Here are some important points:

  • You can see in the admin panel, there are “users”, Let’s learn how to use this feature.
  • There were two things(users and groups) in admin, we will use “users”.
  • The user object has a few key features:
      1. Username
      2. Email
      3. Password
      4. First Name
      5. Last Name
  • There are also some other attributes for the user object, such as:
    1. is_active
    2. is_staff
    3. is_superuser
    4. Groups
    5. Date joined etc
  • Moreover, You can also add more attributes to user such as images, links etc.
  • You can create User Model in your application’s file by creating another class.
  • This class has a relationship to the built in User class.


Now we will create a model class using built in User model.Here is my project’s directory:

Step 1: Create model using built in User model

  • Import User model from djnago > contrib > auth directrory

firstproject > myapp >

from django.db import models
from django.contrib.auth.models import User

class registerModel(models.Model):
    user = models.OneToOneField(User, on_delete = models.CASCADE)

    def __str__(self):
        return self.user.username

What is OneToOneField ?

Here, One to one field means that, child table registerationModel has an one to one relationship with parent model User.  One to one relationship means username field of User(parent) table relates to one and only one time to username field of child table.


  • Add model to file

firstproject > myapp >

from django.contrib import admin
from .models import registerModel
  • Apply Migrations using:
      1. python makemigrations
      2. python migrate
  • And check the output in admin model.


-You can see below the model we created:
