At https://github.com/WikipediaLibrary/TWLight/blob/master/TWLight/applications/management/commands/applications_example_data.py#L191 we renew a selection of applications. Because we use renew() and don't modify the application any further, all renewals are created on the date the data is generated. Instead, after renewing we should go back and modify the dates such that the renewals actually appear to have taken place some time between now and the time the application was first made.
To do this:
- Below the for loop which renews the applications, pull the list of applications which are renewals with Application.objects.filter(status=Application.PENDING, parent__isnull=False)
- Loop through this queryset and edit the submission date for each object to be a date between when the parent application was sent and today's date, e.g:
parent_application = Application.objects.get(pk=application.parent) app_date = parent_application.date_closed renewal_date = Faker( random.choice(settings.FAKER_LOCALES) ).date_time_between(start_date=app_date, end_date="now", tzinfo=None) application.date_created = renewal_date application.save()
