# Django update "extended user profile" model field from webhook paramater

I am getting a webhook from our billing processor after a user makes a payment. So far I have successfully saved the webhook in models for record keeping. However, now I need to update the User account_paid field to the appropriate status.

I believe I've outlined the steps properly but I am stuck on implementing the code. How do I update account_paid and make sure it's the right user ID?

views.py

#@require_POST
def webhook(request):
template_name = 'payment/index.html'

hook = Webhook()
hook.user = request.GET.get('clientAccnum')
hook.clientSubacc = request.GET.get('clientSubacc')
hook.eventType = request.GET.get('eventType')
hook.eventGroupType = request.GET.get('eventGroupType')
hook.subscriptionId = request.GET.get('subscriptionId')

hook.timestamp = request.GET.get('timestamp')
hook.timestamplocal = timezone.now()

hook.save()

print (hook.user, hook.clientSubacc, hook.timestamplocal)

if hook.eventType == 'RenewalSuccess':
#Update user account_level to Paid Account
Profile.account_paid.update(True)

else:
#Update user account_level to Free
Profile.account_paid.update(False)


models.py

class Profile(models.Model):
bio = models.TextField(max_length=500, blank=True)
birth_date = models.DateField(null=True, blank=True)
account_level = models.BooleanField(default=False)


There are no error messages yet because I'm trying to figure out the structure right now. The goal is to finish this question with a working solution.

*Side note: I know webhooks are delivered to URL as POST but for now I am using get purely for debugging purposes.

hook.save()
