[Solved]-Issue with createsuperuser when implementing custom user model


Looking at the code for the management commands, it only prompts for fields in the user model’s REQUIRED_FIELDS attribute (as well as username). That attribute contains email by default in AbstractBaseUser, but if you have overridden it – or not inherited from that model in the first place (which you should be doing) – then email will not be prompted, and not passed to the create_superuser method.


class User(AbstractBaseUser, PermissionsMixin):
    username = models.CharField('username', max_length=150, unique=True)
    email = models.EmailField('email address', unique=True, max_length = 255)
    USERNAME_FIELD = 'username'
    REQUIRED_FIELDS = ['email']

For me above code simply solved problems.


Solution :
Check the spelling of your REQUIRED_FIELDS
