Django-nonrel authentication backend to support permissions and groups

Project description


A Django authentication backend that supports Django’s user and group permissions on Django-Nonrel.


  • Get the code from Github:

    git clone

  • add permission_backend_nonrel.backends.NonrelPermissionBackend to your AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS and permission_backend_nonrel to your INSTALLED_APPS

  • It’s important to put ‘permission_backend_nonrel after djangotoolbox, because permission_backend_nonrel.admin replaces djangotoolbox’s User admin site.

    Permission and groups can be assigned and modified via Django’s admin interface:

    Django-nonrel admin with user_permissions and groups

    Django-gaeauth admin interface with user_permissions and groups

  • Now you should be able to use all the standard Django permission methods and decorators, like user.has_perm(‘foo’) and so on.
