Add admin validation ensuring that Partners set to the Proxy or Library Bundle access methods have a target_url
Closed, ResolvedPublic



In the admin interface, users shouldn't be allowed to save a partner with the Proxy or Library Bundle access method which has no target_url set.

In Django, these validations are defined in a model's clean function. For Partner objects, that can be found in at

To solve this task, add a new if statement to this function which, if the object has the PROXY or BUNDLE access methods, verifies that it also has target_url data. If it doesn't, a ValidationError should be raised stating "Proxy and Bundle partners require a target URL".

Hello! I am setting up the project, will raise a pull request soon

Great, let me know if you have any questions :)

I have tried to setup the project locally and stuck in the following step

Tried to look into the issues and found that it is similar to

My system

  • OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS (Focal Fossa)
  • docker version: 19.03.8
  • docker-compose version: 1.27.4

Thanks @Samwalton9 I have tried to implement the solution but did not succeed because there is no docker-desktop available for Ubuntu and I could not find a way to implement this without that. But later on I tried the setup process again with an older version of docker-compose and it worked finally. I will raise a pull request soon now :)

Oh right - my mistake - I didn't notice you were using Ubuntu and that solution was for Windows. I'm glad to hear you figured it out!
