Is there any way to change username field label in user authentication login page?


Right now login page looked like this

I want to change label of username field to Team Name

Note: I'm using builtin LoginView

According to documentation LoginView has an attribute called authentication_form (typically just a form class). Defaults to AuthenticationForm.

You can create a form class that inherits from AuthenticationForm, set the label of the username field and assign it to your LoginView over authentication_form attribute.

from django import forms    
from django.contrib.auth.forms import AuthenticationForm, UsernameField

class CustomAuthenticationForm(AuthenticationForm):
    username = UsernameField(
        label='Team Name',
        widget=forms.TextInput(attrs={'autofocus': True})

from django.contrib.auth.views import LoginView

from .forms import CustomAuthenticationForm

class CustomLoginView(LoginView):
    authentication_form = CustomAuthenticationForm

urlpatterns = [
    path('login/', CustomLoginView.as_view(), name='login'),
