Dashboard

The dashboard is the backend interface for managing the store. That includes the product catalogue, orders and stock, offers etc. It is intended as a complete replacement of the Django admin interface. The app itself only contains a view that serves as a kind of homepage, and some logic for managing the navigation (in nav.py). There’s several sub-apps that are responsible for managing the different parts of the Oscar store.

Permission-based dashboard

Staff users (users with is_staff==True) get access to all views in the dashboard. To better support Oscar’s use for marketplace scenarios, the permission-based dashboard has been introduced. If a non-staff user has the partner.dashboard_access permission set, she is given access to a subset of views, and her access to products and orders is limited.

AbstractPartner instances have a users field. Prior to Oscar 0.6, this field was not used. Since Oscar 0.6, it is used solely for modelling dashboard access.

If a non-staff user with the partner.dashboard_access permission is in users, she can:

  • Create products. It is enforced that at least one stock record’s partner has the current user in users.
  • Update products. At least one stock record must have the user in the stock record’s partner’s users.
  • Delete and list products. Limited to products the user is allowed to update.
  • Managing orders. Similar to products, a user get access if one of an order’s lines is associated with a matching partner.

For many marketplace scenarios, it will make sense to ensure at checkout that a basket only contains lines from one partner. Please note that the dashboard currently ignores any other permissions, including Django’s default permissions.

Abstract models

None.

Views

class oscar.apps.dashboard.views.IndexView(**kwargs)[source]

An overview view which displays several reports about the shop.

Supports the permission-based dashboard. It is recommended to add a index_nonstaff.html template because Oscar’s default template will display potentially sensitive store information.

get_active_site_offers()[source]

Return active conditional offers of type “site offer”. The returned Queryset of site offers is filtered by end date greater then the current date.

get_active_vouchers()[source]

Get all active vouchers. The returned Queryset of vouchers is filtered by end date greater then the current date.

get_hourly_report(hours=24, segments=10)[source]

Get report of order revenue split up in hourly chunks. A report is generated for the last hours (default=24) from the current time. The report provides max_revenue of the hourly order revenue sum, y-range as the labeling for the y-axis in a template and order_total_hourly, a list of properties for hourly chunks. segments defines the number of labeling segments used for the y-axis when generating the y-axis labels (default=10).

get_number_of_promotions(abstract_base=<class 'oscar.apps.promotions.models.AbstractPromotion'>)[source]

Get the number of promotions for all promotions derived from abstract_base. All subclasses of abstract_base are queried and if another abstract base class is found this method is executed recursively.

get_open_baskets(filters=None)[source]

Get all open baskets. If filters dictionary is provided they will be applied on all open baskets and return only filtered results.
