[Solved]-Django confirm password validator


Add the following to your form’s clean method:

def clean(self):
    password1 = self.cleaned_data.get('password1')
    password2 = self.cleaned_data.get('password2')

    if password1 and password1 != password2:
        raise forms.ValidationError("Passwords don't match")

    return self.cleaned_data


The validation error message above will go into non_field_errors. You didn’t specify what error message is showing on each password field, but based on context, I would imagine it’s a “This field is required” message. If that’s the case, make sure that your form fields have required=False when you define them, or if you’re working with a form subclass (and can’t edit the actual form fields) you can override the __init__ method of the form:

class MyForm(SomeOtherForm):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(MyForm, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)

        self.fields['password1'].required = False
        self.fields['password2'].required = False
