Core library for Nexus django applications that require User accounts

Documentation

The full documentation is at https://django-genomix-users.readthedocs.io.

Quickstart

Install Django GenomiX Users:

pip install django-genomix-users

Make the following changes to INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py file:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'django.contrib.auth',
    'django.contrib.contenttypes',
    'django.contrib.sessions',
    'django.contrib.sites',
    'django.contrib.staticfiles',
    ...
    'rest_framework',
    'rest_framework.authtoken',
    'rest_auth',
    ...
    'django_python3_ldap',
    ...
    'genomix_users',
    ...
)

Add Django GenomiX Users’s URL patterns:

from genomix_users import urls as genomix_users_urls


urlpatterns = [
    ...
    url(r'^', include(genomix_users_urls, namespace='users')),
    ...
]

Make sure settings.py file has TEMPLATES and STATIC_URL set (example below):

TEMPLATES = [
    {
        # See: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/settings/#std:setting-TEMPLATES-BACKEND
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        # See: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/settings/#template-dirs
        'DIRS': [
            os.path.join(ROOT_DIR, 'templates'),
            os.path.join(APPS_DIR, 'templates'),
        ],
        'OPTIONS': {
            # See: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/settings/#template-debug
            'debug': DEBUG,
            # See: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/settings/#template-loaders
            # https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/templates/api/#loader-types
            'loaders': [
                'django.template.loaders.filesystem.Loader',
                'django.template.loaders.app_directories.Loader',
            ],
            # See: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/settings/#template-context-processors
            'context_processors': [
                'django.template.context_processors.debug',
                'django.template.context_processors.request',
                'django.contrib.auth.context_processors.auth',
                'django.template.context_processors.i18n',
                'django.template.context_processors.media',
                'django.template.context_processors.static',
                'django.template.context_processors.tz',
                'django.contrib.messages.context_processors.messages',
                # Your stuff: custom template context processors go here
            ],
        },
    },
]

STATIC_URL = '/static/'

Make sure settings.py file has MIDDLEWARE set (example below):

MIDDLEWARE = [
    'django.middleware.security.SecurityMiddleware',
    'django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware',
    'django.middleware.common.CommonMiddleware',
    'django.middleware.csrf.CsrfViewMiddleware',
    'django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware',
    'django.contrib.messages.middleware.MessageMiddleware',
    'django.middleware.clickjacking.XFrameOptionsMiddleware',
]

Optional settings

Turn off the creation of associated user profiles in settings.py.

CREATE_PROFILE_ON_SAVE = False

Enable authentication to use JSON Web Token in settings.py:

REST_USE_JWT = True

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    'DEFAULT_PERMISSION_CLASSES': (
        'rest_framework.permissions.IsAuthenticated',
    ),
    'DEFAULT_AUTHENTICATION_CLASSES': (
        'rest_framework_jwt.authentication.JSONWebTokenAuthentication',
        'rest_framework.authentication.SessionAuthentication',
        'rest_framework.authentication.BasicAuthentication',
    ),
}

Enable LDAP authentication in settings.py:

LDAP_AUTH_URL = 'ldap://chop.edu:3268'

LDAP_AUTH_USE_TLS = False

LDAP_AUTH_SEARCH_BASE = 'dc=chop,dc=edu'

LDAP_AUTH_OBJECT_CLASS = 'person'

LDAP_AUTH_USER_LOOKUP_FIELDS = ('username',)

LDAP_AUTH_USER_FIELDS = {
    "username": "sAMAccountName",
    "first_name": "givenName",
    "last_name": "sn",
    "email": "mail",
}

LDAP_AUTH_FORMAT_USERNAME = 'django_python3_ldap.utils.format_username_active_directory'

LDAP_AUTH_ACTIVE_DIRECTORY_DOMAIN = 'chop-edu'

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = [
    'django.contrib.auth.backends.ModelBackend',
    'django_python3_ldap.auth.LDAPBackend',
]

Enable LDAP User group filtering in settings.py:

LDAP_AUTH_FORMAT_SEARCH_FILTERS = 'genomix_users.authentication.genomix_search_filters'

LDAP_AUTH_SEARCH_FILTER = 'CN=dgd_nexus_users,ou=DGD Groups,ou=SecurityGroups,ou=Research,ou=Managed By Others,dc=chop,dc=edu'

Sync User Profile with LDAP fields in settings.py:

Note

If CREATE_PROFILE_ON_SAVE = False, LDAP profile will not sync!

LDAP_AUTH_SYNC_USER_RELATIONS = "genomix_users.authentication.sync_genomix_profile"

# User model fields mapped to the LDAP attributes that represent them.
LDAP_AUTH_PROFILE_FIELDS = {
    "title": "title",
}
