Login With Email Instead Of Username In Django Admin

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to log in using email instead of the username in Django admin. It's easy, you can use it on the frontend too

let's start:

from django.db import models
from django.contrib.auth.models import AbstractUser

# Create your models here.

class User(AbstractUser):
    USERNAME_FIELD = "email"
    email = models.EmailField(max_length=255, unique=True)

Don’t forget to point AUTH_USER_MODEL to it.

AUTH_USER_MODEL = "app_name.User"

Now register the model in the app’s

from django.contrib import admin
from django.contrib.auth.admin import UserAdmin
from .models import User, UserAdmin)

You need to run the makemigrations command

python makemigrations

then have to run migrate command

python migrate

Then you have to create a superuser

python createsuperuser
