Logging activity on Django's admin - Django


I need to track/log activity on the Django admin.

I know there are messages stored by admin somewhere, but I don't know how to access them in order to use them as a simple log.

I'm trying to track the following:

  • User performing the action

  • Action committed

  • Datetime of action

Thanks guys.

I had to do something similar and I used something like this:

from django.contrib.admin.models import LogEntry

logs = LogEntry.objects.all() #or you can filter, etc.
for l in logs:
    #perform action

You can see all of the attributes for LogEntry, but I think the ones you are looking for are l.user, l.action_time and l.obj_repr (the name of the obj) and l.action_flag ({ 1:'Add',2:'Change',3:'Delete'}). Hope that helps!
