A database-backed django-auth-adfs settings class

<nav class="contents" id="contents">



2 Features

  • Thin layer on top of django-auth-adfs

  • SAAS ready: store ADFS configuration in a database singleton

  • Quick toggle to enable/disable ADFS based auth

  • Hooks into Django’s auth machinery

Django-auth-adfs-db provides a setting class reading out the dynamic ADFS configuration. This moves the ADFS configuration from deploy-time to run-time, and SAAS clients can configure their ADFS integration themselves. No more server reloads of deployment environment variable changes needed!

3 Installation

3.1 Requirements

  • Python 3.6 or higher

  • setuptools 30.3.0 or higher

  • Django 2.1 or higher

  • PostgreSQL (with jsonb field)

3.2 Install

pip install django-auth-adfs-db

This will also install the django-auth-adfs and django-solo packages.

3.3 Django settings

Make sure the following libraries are added to your INSTALLED_APPS:


Add django_auth_adfs_db.backends.AdfsAuthCodeBackend to AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS.

Ensure that LOGIN_URL and LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL are configured. You can set:

LOGIN_URL = reverse_lazy("django_auth_adfs:login")

if you wish to make ADFS your primary auth login.

Set the AUTH_ADFS config class:

AUTH_ADFS = {"SETTINGS_CLASS": "django_auth_adfs_db.settings.Settings"}

or a subclass thereof.

Finally, register the URLs in your root config with:

urlpatterns += [path("oauth2/", include("django_auth_adfs.urls")),]

3.4 ADFS login URL on admin login

Template: admin/login.html

{% extends "admin/login.html" %}
{% load solo_tags i18n %}

{% block content %}
{{ block.super }}

{% get_solo 'django_auth_adfs_db.ADFSConfig' as adfs_config %}
{% if adfs_config.enabled %}
<div class="submit-row">
    <a href="{% url 'django_auth_adfs:login' %}">{% trans "Login with ADFS" %}</a>
{% endif %}
{% endblock %}
