django-request-id

License Latest PyPI version Supports Wheel format

Augments each request with unique request_id attribute and provides request id logging helpers.

Developed and used at en.ig.ma software shop.

Quickstart

  1. Include django-request-id in your requirements.txt file.

  2. Add request_id to INSTALLED_APPS (necessary only if you are going to use the {% request_id %} template tag).

  3. Add request_id.middleware.RequestIdMiddleware at the top of the MIDDLEWARE Django setting.

  4. The app integrates with the standard Python/Django logging by defining a filter that puts a request_id variable in scope of every log message.

    First add a filter definition to the Django LOGGING settings:

    "filters": {
        "request_id": {
            "()": "request_id.logging.RequestIdFilter"
        }
    }

    Then enable the filter for related handlers:

    "handlers": {
        "console": {
            ...
            "filters": ["request_id"],
        }
     }

    And finally modify formatter output format to include the %(request_id) placeholder:

    "formatters": {
        "console": {
            "format": "%(asctime)s - %(levelname)-5s [%(name)s] request_id=%(request_id)s %(message)s"
        }
    }

    A full Django logging config example may look like this:

    LOGGING= {
        "version": 1,
        "disable_existing_loggers": False,
        "filters": {
            "request_id": {
                "()": "request_id.logging.RequestIdFilter"
            }
        },
        "formatters": {
            "console": {
                "format": "%(asctime)s - %(levelname)-5s [%(name)s] request_id=%(request_id)s %(message)s",
                "datefmt": "%H:%M:%S"
            }
        },
        "handlers": {
            "console": {
                "level": "DEBUG",
                "filters": ["request_id"],
                "class": "logging.StreamHandler",
                "formatter": "console"
            }
        },
        "loggers": {
            "": {
                "level": "DEBUG",
                "handlers": ["console"]
            }
        }
    }
  5. Make sure that your web server adds a X-Request-ID header to each request (and logs it in the server log for further matching of the server and app log entries).

    If you can't generate the X-Request-Id header at the web server level then simply set REQUEST_ID_HEADER = None in your project settings and the app will generate a unique id value automatically instead of retrieving it from the wsgi environment.

    For more info on server configs see server-config.
