Redirect to detail view in django after creation

In this django tutorial, i am making student management system, first we will create models for student, then we will create views and urls. After that i will create form and then render everything in template.

I have made a project, named it school. then i created an app called demo.  I hope you know all these basics of django like how to create project, how to create django app. I am not going to tell you these. Lets start without wasting time.


from django.db import models
from django.urls import reverse

# Create your models here.
class Student(models.Model):
    student_name = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    father_name = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    mother_name = models.CharField(max_length=100)

    def get_absolute_url(self):
        return reverse('student-detail', kwargs = {
            'id' : self.id

I have created a model for student, this is just a simple model, not very long model.  Run migrations.

python manage.py makemigrations

python manage.py migrate

Now, go views.py and add these lines .


from django.shortcuts import render, redirect
from .models import Student
from .forms import StudentForm

def student_list(request):
    stud = Student.objects.all()

    context = {
        'stud' : stud,

    return render(request, 'demo/student_list.html', context)

def student_detail(request, id):
    stud = Student.objects.get(id=id)

    context = {
        'stud' : stud


    return render(request, 'demo/student_detail.html', context)

def student_form(request):
    form = StudentForm()
    if request.method == 'POST':
        form = StudentForm(request.POST, request.FILES)
        if form.is_valid():
            instance = form.save()
            return redirect('student-detail', id=instance.pk)
    context = {'form':form}
    return render(request, 'demo/student_form.html', context)



from django import forms
from .models import Student

class StudentForm(forms.ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = Student
        fields = '__all__'


Add these to urls.py 

from django.urls import path

from .import views

urlpatterns = [
    path('student_form/', views.student_form, name = 'student-form'),
    path('student/', views.student_list, name = 'student-list'),
    path('student/<int:id>/', views.student_detail, name = 'student-detail'),

Inside demo app, create a folder named templates and inside templates create a folder named demo. This is django way.

Now create student_form.html 

Add these lines.

<form action=” “, method=”POST”>
{% csrf_token %}
{{ form }}
<input type=”submit” value=”submit”>
Now create another file inside demo/templates/demo
create student_detail.html

Student : {{ stud.student_name }}<br>
Mother : {{ stud.mother_name }}<br>
Father : {{ stud.father_name }} <br>
You must be wondering, what is stud in this code. well, go to views.py and see what you have written to get a single student.
stud = Student.objects.get(id=id)

Now testing time. If you know django, you must have tested these code earlier.  Now run server.

python manage.py runserver
open google chrome or any browser.
type :
student form

After filling the form you will be redirect to detail view.
Redirect to detail view

How redirect to detail view happened ?

In view.py, in student_form function.

instance = form.save()

return redirect('student-detail', id=instance.pk)

When form is saved, an instance is created.  when  redirecting to detail view, i called the name of detail view and instance.pk

pk is primary key here. in your case its id.


How to redirect to list view ?

Redirecting to list view or any other page is very easy task. In student_form function.

delete instance.


return redirect('student-list')

student-list is the name in urls.py, which redirect to student-list page.


Conclusion : Django redirect view.
