A simple Django app to register logs in admin backoffice.

Project description

Admin watchdog

Admin watchdog is a simple Django app to register and view logs in the django admin backoffice.

Tested with Django 2.2 through 4.0.

Quick start

  1. Add “admin_watchdog” to your INSTALLED_APPS settings.

  2. Run python migrate to create the admin watchdog model.

  3. Edit your LOGGING settings to use the admin watchdog handler. For example, to replace the default mail handler:

    LOGGING = {
        'version': 1,
        'disable_existing_loggers': False,
        'handlers': {
            'admin_watchdog': {
                'level': 'ERROR',
                'class': 'admin_watchdog.handlers.AdminWatchdogHandler',
        'loggers': {
            'django.request': {
                'handlers': ['admin_watchdog'],
                'level': 'ERROR',
                'propagate': False,
  4. Your error logs will now be registered. Visit your admin backoffice to see the log entries.

  5. You can run the tests by doing make test.
