This section is covering user administration.
If you don’t have the permission to manage other users, you don’t see
Authentication and Authorization Section.
If you have deployed DMP to Heroku, the password you used for the superuser account was written in plain text to the config variables. It is strongly recommended that you change the password upon the first login.
Superusers should not do everyday tasks. Create staff users.
You add users by clicking on
+ add link for the
Authentication and Authorization. The following view is shown:
Add a username and a password twice and click on
Save and continue
editing. Then, in the next view, add additional data.
Passwords are not visible, and not saved in plaintext.
To change a password for another user, use
this form link.
Staff status has to be set for all users of Django-Music-Publisher,
and they have to be assigned to an appropriate permission group. Two
permission groups are set during installation:
Publishing staffgives all permissions required for everyday publishing work
Publishing auditgives read-only permissions to all data in Music Publisher module
Select one of them and click on the icon that will move it to
chosen groups. Then you can click on
You will be taken to the
user list view. All users are shown here. Just as the add and change views, list views are quite standard. They will be covered a bit later.
Now you can log out, and log in as the newly added staff user. The
home view is a bit different, according to the assigned permissions.
