Hi !

InlineModelAdmin has the following methods :

def has_add_permission(self, request):
def has_change_permission(self, request, obj=None):
def has_delete_permission(self, request, obj=None):

In those methods, the obj parameter represents the parent instance. So, by overriding ModelInline.has_change_permission you can have some specific logic to define whether an user can change inlines objects depending on the parent object.

The thing is that the has_add_permission misses this argument. It probably came from a confusion between the parent instance (the obj argument) and the child instance (not accessible).

Still, exactly as it makes sense overriding ModelInline.has_change_permission, we may need to have some specific logic to define whether an user can add inlines objects depending on the parent object.

I suggest we add the obj argument to ModelInline.has_add_permission, and make it more clear (both in the doc and as comments in the code) that obj refers to the parent instance, and not the inline instance.

It would be awesome if those methods also took the inline instance as a parameter (eg. def has_change_permission(self, request, obj=None, childObj=None): to keep it backwards compatible ) but that would probably be for another ticket.

Thanks !

Seems okay at first glance. For backwards compatibility, each has_add_permission()call that starts passing obj needs to check if the has_add_permission() method accepts an obj parameter and give a deprecation warning if not; see a7c256cb5491bf2a77abdff01638239db5bfd9d5 for a similar deprecation.
