How to create user from Django shell

  • Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2021

Let’s look at how to create a user for Django using Django’s interactive shell? Make sure you have the virtual environment activated, and you are within the folder that has the manage.py file. 

Note: Refer to the article How to Create a Basic Project using MVT in Django? to understand how to create a project in Django.

Let’s launch Django’s interactive shell using the below command

python manage.py shell

You will get a similar output as mentioned below

Now enter the following code in the shell to create a user for Django.

Python3




from django.contrib.auth.models import User
  
user = User.objects.create_user('sonu','sonu@xyz.com','sn@pswrd')
user.save()

Let’s check our new user using superuser credentials. You can follow How to create superuser in Django? to create a superuser. Let’s start the server and log in using the admin URL (make sure path(‘admin/’, admin.site.urls), is mentioned in the URL patterns). 

http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/

You can check the newly added user details under the Users section.
