have your view set the created_by to request.user [also, default of '' is not valid for a fkey field]

@Nkirui on a related note, if you are adding the above fields, you could consider using for your app(s), avoids writing a lot of boilerplate.

@funkybob and @badri guess i am almost there implemented this on the forms
class DriverForm(ModelForm):
class Meta:
model = DriverProfile
exclude = ['created_by']
    def save_model(self, request, obj,change):
        if change:
            obj.created_by = request.user
and my views:
def drivercreate(request):
form = DriverForm(request.POST or None)
if form.is_valid():
return redirect('driverlist')
return render(request, 'employer/drivercreate.html', {'form': form})
I used the, exclude = ['created_by'] because i dont want it to be part of the form to be filled ..

posting from insomnia works but from client side it does not work. It says unsupported media type application/json
if i use content-type as multipart/form-data then i get status 200 but the empty data gets posted

I have the following model, above this is another model with photobatch_id, they are related through the foreign key, I would like the photos to be uploaded to a folder named the same as the 'photobatch_id' in the photo_number = models.ImageField(upload_to='images/photobatches/photobatch_id/') anyone know how this can be achieved? How do I add some kind of variable - I assume in the view - so the model knows which folder to make/use?
class PhotobatchPhotos(models.Model):
    photo_id = models.AutoField(primary_key=True)
    photobatch_id = models.ForeignKey(Photobatch, db_column='id', on_delete = models.PROTECT, null=True, blank=True)
    photo_number = models.ImageField(upload_to='images/photobatches/photobatch_id/')
    upload_timestamp = models.DateTimeField(auto_now_add=True)

    def __str__(self):
        return str(photobatch_id)

    class Meta():
        db_table = 'excavation\".\"photobatch_photos'
