# Configuration¶

## settings.py¶

To enable django-authority you just need to add the package to your INSTALLED_APPS setting within your settings.py:

# settings.py
INSTALLED_APPS = (
...
'authority',
)


Make sure your settings.py contains the following settings to enable the context processors:

TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
'django.core.context_processors.auth',
'django.core.context_processors.debug',
'django.core.context_processors.i18n',
'django.core.context_processors.media',
'django.core.context_processors.request',
)


django-authority defaults to using a smart cache when checking permissions. This can be disabled by adding the following line to settings.py:

AUTHORITY_USE_SMART_CACHE = False


## urls.py¶

You also have to modify your root URLConf (e.g. urls.py) to include the app’s URL configuration and automatically discover all the permission classes you defined:

from django.contrib import admin
import authority
