Re: Multiple levels of user in django application

I am basically a PHP programmer, and  I have been assigned modify existing django application.  Now I want to create a login for  all the 5 levels of users and their functionalities are differentiated based on the  roles.  Customization of admin page for adding new user and map it with the corresponding user details. 

I have attached the models that I want to map with the django user.   I want a best solution for mapping the users with different group members using this django application.

Thank your for your reply.  Actually I created another model that aggregates all the values from each group table.  but after analyzing I feel its a worst method and performance is also very low.So model re-design is the only way to sort out this issue and need  help for redesigning the models.  Because I want to add users and map these users to group details from the admin page.  I am very confused state and I don't know how to re-design and optimize the queries.   

Django makes it easy to have multiple profile types with different sets of custom fields, and various permissions levels (roles). The admin does a good job of letting you add users to groups. I think you're going to have to spell out your problem/goals with more detail - we're not clear on exactly what's not working for you.  It might help (you and us) if you sketched out your desired model relationships with a charting tool or graphics program, or even as ascii art.
