Notice: Over the next few months, we're reorganizing the App Engine documentation site to make it easier to find content and better align with the rest of Google Cloud products. The same content will be available, but the navigation will now match the rest of the Cloud products.

Python 2 is no longer supported by the community. We recommend that you migrate Python 2 apps to Python 3.

Admin Users

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

An application can test whether the currently signed-in user is a registered administrator for the application. An administrator is a user who has the Viewer, Editor, or Owner basic role, or the App Engine App Admin predefined role.

The function users.is_current_user_admin returns True if the current user is an administrator for the application.

class AdminPage(webapp2.RequestHandler):
    def get(self):
        user = users.get_current_user()
        if user:
            if users.is_current_user_admin():
                self.response.write('You are an administrator.')
            else:
                self.response.write('You are not an administrator.')
        else:
            self.response.write('You are not logged in.')
