Suppose you have a
Book model which has an
is_active field as given below.
# app_name/models.py class Book(models.Model): ... is_active = models.BooleanField(default=True)
And you do not want the admin to edit/add values in certain fields, you can make them read only in the admin panel using
readonly_fields attribute of
ModelAdmin, here is how you do it.
# app_name/admin.py from django.contrib import admin from app_name.models import Book class BookAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin): ... readonly_fields = ("is_active", ) # 'is_active' field will be read_only in the django admin form
