pip install request-id-django-log




The following options are used by this library:

  • REQUEST_ID_HEADER is the header name which will hold the received request_id. This must be used when another system is responsible for generating the request_ids and sending them to your django application.
  • GENERATE_REQUEST_ID_IF_NOT_FOUND If set to true, a new request_id will be generated if none was previously supplied.
  • RESPONSE_HEADER_REQUEST_ID sets the name of the response header which will hold the value of the request_id.

With this configuration if the request have the header X-REQUEST-ID the library will use this header value.


If you want your logs to have the request id, add the following lines to your logging dictionary configuration:

    "filters": {"request_id": {"()": "request_id_django_log.filters.RequestIDFilter"}},
    "formatters": {
        "standard": {
            "format": "%(levelname)-8s [%(asctime)s] [%(request_id)s] %(name)s: %(message)s",
    "handlers": {
        "console": {
            "filters": ["request_id"],
    "loggers": {
        "": {"level": "INFO", "handlers": ["console"]},
