I tried following Code with the help of the django.contrib.auth.User and django.contrib.auth.Group
for g in request.user.groups: l.append(g.name)
But that failed and I received following Error:
TypeError at / 'ManyRelatedManager' object is not iterable Request Method: GET Request URL: http://localhost:8000/ Exception Type: TypeError Exception Value: 'ManyRelatedManager' object is not iterable Exception Location: C:\p4\projects\...\users.py in permission, line 55
Thanks for any help!
You can get the groups of a user with
request.user.groups.all(), which will return a
QuerySet. And then you can turn that object into a list if you want.
for g in request.user.groups.all(): l.append(g.name)
or with recent Django
l = request.user.groups.values_list('name',flat = True) # QuerySet Object l_as_list = list(l) # QuerySet to `list`
This is better
if user.groups.filter(name='groupname').exists(): # Action if existing else: # Action if not existing
