                               allowed_methods=[json_api_spec_http_methods.HTTP_GET]) \
.fields(['email', 'first_name', 'last_name']) \
.add_filter(name='email', lookups=(lookups.EXACT, lookups.IN)) \
.add_filter(name='order', field='orders__id', lookups=(lookups.EXACT, lookups.IN)) \
.add_relation(field='orders', many=True) \
.get_urls()

order_urls = JsonApiViewBuilder(model=Order, 
                               resource_name='orders',
                               allowed_methods=[json_api_spec_http_methods.HTTP_GET]) \
