[SOLVED] Django allauth No Reverse Match


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Mustansir Godhrawala

Django allauth fails when using a custom user model with the email as the primary key, I learnt about this when I tried to test the password change functionality.

Reverse for 'account_reset_password_from_key' with keyword arguments '{'uidb36': 'mgodhrawala402@gmail.com', 'key': 'bbz25w-9c6941d5cb69a49883f15bc8e076f504'}' not found. 1 pattern(s) tried: ['accounts/password/reset/key/(?P<uidb36>[0-9A-Za-z]+)-(?P<key>.+)/$']

I don’t mind going into the code to fix this issue, since my application is still under development, I can still change authentication incase anyone has any suggestions.


The easiest fix for this problem would be adding a sequence integer pk and just updating your email field to index unique because as you see the regex path doesn’t accept email format for uidb36, it only accepts 0-9A-Za-z.

If you must use email as pk you can add another path to your urls to accept your email pattern:

from allauth.account import views

path('accounts/', include('allauth.urls')),
