You can define your custom serializers for each endpoint without overriding urls and views by adding REST_AUTH_SERIALIZERS dictionary in your django settings. Possible key values:

    • LOGIN_SERIALIZER - serializer class in dj_rest_auth.views.LoginView, default value dj_rest_auth.serializers.LoginSerializer
    • TOKEN_SERIALIZER - response for successful authentication in dj_rest_auth.views.LoginView, default value dj_rest_auth.serializers.TokenSerializer
    • JWT_SERIALIZER - (Using REST_USE_JWT=True) response for successful authentication in dj_rest_auth.views.LoginView, default value dj_rest_auth.serializers.JWTSerializer
    • JWT_TOKEN_CLAIMS_SERIALIZER - A custom JWT Claim serializer. Default is rest_framework_simplejwt.serializers.TokenObtainPairSerializer
    • USER_DETAILS_SERIALIZER - serializer class in dj_rest_auth.views.UserDetailsView, default value dj_rest_auth.serializers.UserDetailsSerializer
    • PASSWORD_RESET_SERIALIZER - serializer class in dj_rest_auth.views.PasswordResetView, default value dj_rest_auth.serializers.PasswordResetSerializer
    • PASSWORD_RESET_CONFIRM_SERIALIZER - serializer class in dj_rest_auth.views.PasswordResetConfirmView, default value dj_rest_auth.serializers.PasswordResetConfirmSerializer
    • PASSWORD_CHANGE_SERIALIZER - serializer class in dj_rest_auth.views.PasswordChangeView, default value dj_rest_auth.serializers.PasswordChangeSerializer

    Example configuration:

        'LOGIN_SERIALIZER': '',
        'TOKEN_SERIALIZER': '',

    You can define your custom serializers for registration endpoint. Possible key values:

    • REGISTER_SERIALIZER - serializer class in dj_rest_auth.registration.views.RegisterView, default value dj_rest_auth.registration.serializers.RegisterSerializer


    The custom REGISTER_SERIALIZER must define a def save(self, request) method that returns a user model instance

  • REST_AUTH_REGISTER_PERMISSION_CLASSES - A tuple contains paths of another permission classes you wish to be used in RegisterView, AllowAny is included by default.

    Example :

  • REST_AUTH_TOKEN_MODEL - path to model class for tokens, default value 'rest_framework.authtoken.models.Token' If set to None token authentication will be disabled. In this case at least one of REST_SESSION_LOGIN or REST_USE_JWT must be enabled.

  • REST_AUTH_TOKEN_CREATOR - path to callable or callable for creating tokens, default value dj_rest_auth.utils.default_create_token.

  • REST_AUTH_PW_RESET_USE_SITES_DOMAIN - if set to True, the domain in the password reset e-mail will be set to the domain you defined in django.contrib.sites module with SITE_ID=1

  • REST_SESSION_LOGIN - Enable session login in Login API view (default: True)

  • REST_USE_JWT - Enable JWT Authentication instead of Token/Session based. This is built on top of djangorestframework-simplejwt, which must also be installed. (default: False)

  • JWT_AUTH_COOKIE - The cookie name/key.

  • JWT_AUTH_REFRESH_COOKIE - The name/key of the refresh token. None when not set, which disables the refresh token.

  • JWT_AUTH_SECURE - If you want the cookie to be only sent to the server when a request is made with the https scheme (default: False).

  • JWT_AUTH_HTTPONLY - If you want to prevent client-side JavaScript from having access to the cookie (default: True).

  • JWT_AUTH_SAMESITE - To tell the browser not to send this cookie when performing a cross-origin request (default: ‘Lax’). SameSite isn’t supported by all browsers.

  • OLD_PASSWORD_FIELD_ENABLED - set it to True if you want to have old password verification on password change endpoint (default: False)

  • LOGOUT_ON_PASSWORD_CHANGE - set to False if you want to keep the current user logged in after a password change

  • JWT_AUTH_COOKIE_USE_CSRF - Enables CSRF checks for only authenticated views when using the JWT cookie for auth. Does not effect a client’s ability to authenticate using a JWT Bearer Auth header without a CSRF token.

  • JWT_AUTH_COOKIE_ENFORCE_CSRF_ON_UNAUTHENTICATED - Enables CSRF checks for authenticated and unauthenticated views when using the JWT cookie for auth. It does not effect a client’s ability to authenticate using a JWT Bearer Auth header without a CSRF token (though getting the JWT token in the first place without passing a CSRF token isnt possible).
