Function Details [hide private]

request_permission(always_redirect_to=None, permission_owners_func=None, extra_context={}, template='permissions/get_permission.html')

source code 

Get a generic view to use for creating PermissionRequests. Because of the way the permissions app stores views, this function will need to be wrapped in another function. For example:

   def req_perm_wrapper(*args, **kwargs):
       return request_permission()(*args, **kwargs)

The view's template context will have:

The form will show all users that can delegate the requested permission by default. To change the shown set, specify permission_owners_func which should return the set to show.

  • always_redirect_to - path to redirect to after the permission request is saved. If None, then use the redirect_to parameter given to the view from the permission redirection. Default None. This can also be a callable that takes the request as argument.
  • permission_owners_func - A callable with the following signature:
           permission_owners_func(request, obj_permission, permittee)
       Where C{request} is the request object passed to the view,
       C{obj_permission} is the requested L{ObjectPermission} instance, and
       C{permittee} is the object that will own the permission. The
       function should return a C{django.contrib.auth.models.User} C{QuerySet}.
  • extra_context - A dictionary of values to add to the template context. By default, this is an empty dictionary. If a value in the dictionary is callable, the generic view will call it just before rendering the template.
  • template - Path of the template to use. By default, this is "permissions/get_permission.html".
