    'activity_log.middleware.ActivityLogMiddleware',

# For writing log to another DB

DATABASE_ROUTERS = ['activity_log.router.DatabaseAppsRouter']
DATABASE_APPS_MAPPING = {'activity_log': 'logs'}

# If you set up DATABASE_APPS_MAPPING, but don't set related value in
# DATABASES, it will created automatically using "default" DB settings
# as example.
DATABASES = {
    'logs': {
        ...
    },
}

# Create DB automatically (for postgres, and may be mysql).
# We create log database automatically using raw SQL in pre_migrate signal.
# You must insure, that DB user has permissions for creation databases. 
# Tested only for postgresql
ACTIVITYLOG_AUTOCREATE_DB = False

# App settings

# Only this methods will be logged
ACTIVITYLOG_METHODS = ('POST', 'GET')

# List of response statuses, which logged. By default - all logged.
# Don't use with ACTIVITYLOG_EXCLUDE_STATUSES
