Hello @kartik,

First make sure you have SessionMiddleware and AuthenticationMiddleware middlewares added to your MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES setting.

The current user is in request object, you can get it by:

def sample_view(request):
    current_user = request.user
    print current_user.id

request.user will give you a User object representing the currently logged-in user. If a user isn't currently logged in, request.user will be set to an instance of AnonymousUser. You can tell them apart with the field is_authenticated, like so:

if request.user.is_authenticated:
    # Do something for authenticated users.
else:
    # Do something for anonymous users.

Hope it works!!

Thank you!!
