How to Django Create superuser

We are learning Django from beginners level to advance, that is why you should have to clear every topic related to Django. In this tutorial, we are learning how to Django create SuperUser in which we will take different other things, like why the need of superuser in Django, who is the superuser, the responsibilities of a superuser, etc all these topics we will discuss in this tutorial. So, let’s start to learn.

Who is the Super User?

It is the user who has all the rights to do in the Django project. There are maybe multiple superusers in one signal Django website or web application. We can say that it is a superior user to all others because some users have lesser rights. For example, one user has permission to create a post but did not have permission to update or delete, which means this user has limitations with their account. But in the case of superuser, it has all the rights to do, for example, to create, retrieve, update/edit delete, etc.

Why need of Superuser in the Django Project?

It is very important to have a superuser on the Django website. You know in any organization there is one admin who manages all the things in the organization. Without admin, all the staff, employees, schedules will not be properly managed, it is the admin who understands its responsibilities to manage all things.

A website has different operations to be performed, for example, to delete a dummy user or inactive user, or spammer user, etc. To update or delete illegal posts etc, to manage different applications in the project, to assign different rules to different users, to include or exclude permission to users, etc. To feel these needs we need a superuser for a website backend, even for Django project also

What can do a SuperUser?

  • To create: That can create post, article, anything insertion in the model
  • Retrieve: That can retrieve any data from the database tables.
  • Update: To update any record in the table, when the user inputs wrong or mistaken data
  • Delete: That can also delete any post, account, etc
  • Creating another superuser: It can create another superuser that has all these responsibilities
  • Managing all things: Each and everything is managed by a superuser
  • Assigning permissions to a user: There are different types of permission, assigned by user-user
  • Designing permission from users: After assigning, the admin can designing the permission from users.
  • Visit any page of the admin: There are different admin pages, superuser can visit any of them
  • It deletes another superuser: So, if the admin, wants to delete any superuser, it can do it.

How to Django create SuperUser?

You can create a  superuser using the manage.py command. So, understand the following command!

python manage.py createsuperuser # press enter

Open a terminal, and run above command, after running this command you will get the message:

username <leave blank to ‘your_pc_username’>:

In the above line, it is telling that, if you leave this blank and did not give any username then press enter blank, your user name will be that as PC user name.

After that you will have to put email address:
email address: forexample@gmail.com

password: Enter password
password (again): Enter again password

If the password you entered is week, it will inform you, providing instructions to you, how you can fix that, but if you like to keep that password anyway, you can press ‘y’ to complete this process to create Django superuser.

This password is too short,…
Bypass password validation and create user anyway (y/n): y
