How to add default INSTALLED APP in django

I deployed Django project using cloud code from pycharm.

but in this sample template, there were not the code in installed_app basic apps like these

‘django.contrib.admin’, ‘django.contrib.auth’, ‘django.contrib.contenttypes’, ‘django.contrib.sessions’, ‘django.contrib.messages’, ‘django.contrib.staticfiles’,

there was only ‘django.contrib.staticfiles’ apps.

Also the default middleweres were not completely installed

Default Setting is the below



So, is there any way to add basic apps?

I have never used google cloud. Can you not just modify the default template to include what you need?

I tried declaring a session variable adding all default app and middlewares and context_processors.
And error message is the below

django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: settings.DATABASES is improperly configured. Please supply the ENGINE value. Check settings documentation for more details.

The code is the below.
There is no DATABASE setting in this sample code.
Setting up a database in Cloud run is too complicating for me.

import os

# Build paths inside the project like this: os.path.join(BASE_DIR, ...)
BASE_DIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__)))

# Quick-start development settings - unsuitable for production
# See

# SECURITY WARNING: keep the secret key used in production secret!
SECRET_KEY = 'secret!'

# SECURITY WARNING: don't run with debug turned on in production!
DEBUG = True

# Change this to your production URL for deployment

# Application definition







ROOT_URLCONF = 'helloproject.urls'

        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': ['helloapp/templates'],
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [


WSGI_APPLICATION = 'helloproject.wsgi.application'

# Internationalization


TIME_ZONE = 'Asia/Seoul'

USE_I18N = True

USE_L10N = True

USE_TZ = True

# Static files (CSS, JavaScript, Images)

STATIC_URL = '/static/'

Try to set up a postgres resource on google cloud, search for a tutorial on this.

The ENGINE will need to be django.db.backends.postgresql.

You will add this to your settings file and populate the fields with the values that you get on the postgres database resource, I have populated it with random field values to show what it should look like:

    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.postgresql',
        'NAME': 'df3iogc6kwweeqm1t8',
        'USER': 'ykykmwpwewwsnncxna',
        'PASSWORD': '1319e9ceijiijeiwjijeiwjiewjijwi3',
        'HOST': '',
        'PORT': '5432',
