Hello! Sorry, I’m a newbie with Django and the answer to my question may be obvious (but not to me).
I’m not sure I understand your question.
What I’m reading here leads me to believe that you want one input field in an html form, and have that value assigned to two fields in the Django form, is that correct?
If so, at what point in the process does this need to occur? (What are you doing with the data after it has been submitted?)
Yes, you are correct.
I want to use this form to create a new instance of a class from a user model and then send the data to the LDAP server to create a new directory entry.
It’s something like this: Writing a Custom Signup Form in Django | Reintech media
So where does the duplication of data come into play here? It may be helpful if you posted the relevant blocks of code (form, model, view) involved with this.
