djanog shell change password

To change a user's password using the Django shell, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Django shell by running the command python shell in your project's root directory.

  2. Import the necessary modules by entering the following commands:

from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from django.contrib.auth.hashers import make_password

The User module allows us to access and modify user information, while the make_password module helps us securely hash the new password.

  1. Find the user whose password you want to change by running the following command:
user = User.objects.get(username='username')

Replace 'username' with the actual username of the user.

  1. Generate a new hashed password by running the following command:
new_password = make_password('new_password')

Replace 'new_password' with the desired new password.

  1. Set the user's password to the new hashed password by running the following command:
user.password = new_password

That's it! The user's password has now been changed. Remember to replace 'username' and 'new_password' with the appropriate values for your use case.
