A Django middleware to restrict incoming IPs to admin panel

Project description

A Django middleware to restrict the access to the Django admin based on incoming IPs


  • Python >= 3.5

  • Django >= 1.11,<4

  • django-ipware=>2,<4

Note that Django 3 has dropped support for Python 3.5


First install the package:

$ pip install django-admin-ip-restrictor

Then add the middleware to your settings:


Set these variables in your to control who has access to the admin (IPV4 and IPV6 can be mixed):


Use RESTRICTED_APP_NAMES to restrict the access to more apps. Admin app is always included.

If using environment variables make sure that the variables receive the right type of value. django-admin-ip-restrictor automatically converts the following formats:

$ export RESTRICT_ADMIN='true'
$ export ALLOWED_ADMIN_IPS=',::1'
$ export ALLOWED_ADMIN_IP_RANGES=',::/1'
$ export RESTRICTED_APP_NAMES='wagtail_admin,foo'

For RESTRICT_ADMIN also these values can be used: True, 1, false, False, 0

Use TRUST_PRIVATE_IP to skip checking IP addresses from a trusted private network.
