Globally censor a set of default variable names in your Django error reports

Project description

extra_sensitive_variables is a third-party exception filter for Django. This allows you to globally censor a set of default variable names in Django’s error reports regardless of a function’s lack of @sensitive_* decorators. Basically, any variable matching the names provided in settings.EXTRA_SENSITIVE_VARIABLES or settings.EXTRA_SENSITIVE_POST_PARAMETERS will be censored.

Installation

  1. Install the package via pip

    pip install django-extra-sensitive-variables
    
  2. Tell Django to use the Extra Sensitive Variable filter by overriding DEFAULT_EXCEPTION_REPORTER_FILTER in your settings.py

    DEFAULT_EXCEPTION_REPORTER_FILTER = 'extra_sensitive_variables.ExtraSensitiveReporterFilter'
    
  3. Then add the following variables to your settings.py and modify them as you see fit

    # Variable names to always censor from "local vars" output
    EXTRA_SENSITIVE_VARIABLES = ['password', 'credentials']
    
    # Censor anything from the POST QueryDict matching these names
    EXTRA_SENSITIVE_POST_PARAMETERS = ['password', 'credentials', 'credit_card_number']
