  • Include __metaclass__ = user_lock to your ModelAdmin class

  • Add __target__ = path_to_user_field somewhere in the ModelAdmin

  • done!

__target__ is what will be used in the filter call. examples 'user' or 'author' or 'message__user' e.t.c.

The result of __target__ is the field that is then checked against request.user
