User management django application for Edelweiss Data

Project description


This is a django appliation to help manage users and user groups for an EdelweissData installation. It provides an admin dashboard creating and editing entites directly into the EdelweissData database.

It is assumed you already have a Edelweiss Data database. The django app will not try to create the EdelweissData core database tables.

Installation into your django project

Add this app to your installed apps in your file:


You probably want to keep your EdelweissData core tables in a different schema from your django application files. You might even choose to use a different database. Add a router in your file so that django knows to look for the EdelweissData tables in a different location:

    DATABASE_ROUTERS = ['django_edelweiss_data.usermanager.router.Router']

Then configure your DATABASES section with default and edelweiss_datasets sections. In the following example, all tables are in the edelweiss database. The EdelweissData core tables are in the datasets schema and the django application tables are in the django schema.

    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.postgresql',
        'OPTIONS': {
            'options': '-c search_path=django',
        'NAME': 'edelweiss',
    'edelweiss_datasets': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.postgresql',
        'OPTIONS': {
            'options': '-c search_path=datasets',
        'NAME': 'edelweiss',

Connect to your database and create the django schema:


And then run migrations:

python migrate usermanager
