Description (last modified by Russell Keith-Magee)

For example: If you have a User and UserProfile, you can set up the Admin site to display an inline for the UserProfile.

If the user provides data for the UserProfile, it will be validated and saved.

However, an empty form also passes validation -- there's no easy way to require that the user populate the UserProfile inline.

More details and description on Stack Overflow.

I propouse to use some like this:

class ProfileInline(admin.StackedInline):
    Allows profile to be added when creating user
    model = Profile
    extra = 1
    max_num = 1
    formset = RequiredInlineFormSet
    formset_required = True

Broadly, I can accept the use case. However, I'm inclined to say that the solution lies in Formsets, not the admin.

This is essentially a dupe of #14832. That is one tough problem to solve...
