Your code will not work in projects where you reference the
User model (and where the
AUTH_USER_MODEL setting has been changed) directly.
For example: if you want to create
Post model for a blog with a customized
User model, you should specify the custom
User model like this:
from django.conf import settings from django.db import models class Post(models.Model): author = models.ForeignKey(settings.AUTH_USER_MODEL, on_delete=models.CASCADE)
