class RemoteUserBackend(ModelBackend):
This backend is to be used in conjunction with the ``RemoteUserMiddleware``
found in the middleware module of this package, and is used when the server
is handling authentication outside of Django.
By default, the ``authenticate`` method creates ``User`` objects for
usernames that don't already exist in the database. Subclasses can disable
this behavior by setting the ``create_unknown_user`` attribute to
# Create a User object if not already in the database?
create_unknown_user = True
def authenticate(self, remote_user):
The username passed as ``remote_user`` is considered trusted. This
method simply returns the ``User`` object with the given username,
creating a new ``User`` object if ``create_unknown_user`` is ``True``.
Returns None if ``create_unknown_user`` is ``False`` and a ``User``
object with the given username is not found in the database.
if not remote_user:
user = None
username = self.clean_username(remote_user)
# Note that this could be accomplished in one try-except clause, but
# instead we use get_or_create when creating unknown users since it has
# built-in safeguards for multiple threads.
if self.create_unknown_user:
user, created = User.objects.get_or_create(username=username)
if created:
user = self.configure_user(user)

except User.DoesNotExist:
return user
def clean_username(self, username):
Performs any cleaning on the "username" prior to using it to get or
create the user object. Returns the cleaned username.
By default, returns the username unchanged.
return username
def configure_user(self, user):
Configures a user after creation and returns the updated user.
By default, returns the user unmodified.
