Assigning Groups

Typically, you'll just be mapping Discord Groups to standard Groups.

Pulling Discord Groups

Currently this is a bit clunky, a better interface is coming soon.

  1. Navigate to Admin Panel
  2. Click Periodic Tasks
  3. Create a task, name it "Pull Discord Groups"
  4. Select the Task django_discord_connector.sync_discord_groups
  5. Disable the task by default
  6. Select an interval schedule
  7. Save

Now, you'll be able to select that task and (from the Action dropdown) Run selected task.

Mapping Discord Groups

Once you've pulled your discord groups, you can attach them to standard Groups by going to Discord Groups, selecting the Discord Group you want to map, and selecting the standard Group.

By default, Discord groups are applied every 5 minutes. You can edit this under Periodic Tasks, or manually run it.

Enforcing Nicknames

For versions >=1.2.2rc2, nickname enforcement is available.

Prerequisites

Clean up Dangling Objects

In previous versions of the package, dangling objects were allowed. Since 1.2.0, this is no longer the case.

sudo docker-compose exec app python3 /opt/krypted/app/manage.py shell
from django_discord_connector.models import DiscordToken, DiscordUser
DiscordToken.objects.filter(discord_user=None).delete()
DiscordUser.objects.filter(discord_token=None).delete()

Packages

If you plan to use naming enforcement that involves other packages (e.g Django EVE Online Connector), ensure these are installed.

Usage

  1. Enable the nickname enforcement task in your settings
  2. Go to Discord Settings in the Admin Panel (or Settings panel) and add a name enforcement schema
Formatter Description Requirements
%username The Krypted Platform username None
%character Primary character full name django-eveonline-connector
%corporation Primary character corporation ticker django-eveonline-connector
%allaince Primary character alliance ticker django-eveonline-connector

Example: [%corporation] %character would result in something like [KRYPD] BearThatCares
