8. How to specify the table name for a model?

To save you time, Django automatically derives the name of the database table from the name of your model class and the app that contains it. A model’s database table name is constructed by joining the model’s “app label” – the name you used in manage.py startapp – to the model’s class name, with an underscore between them.

We have two apps in our demo application i.e., entities and events so all the models in them will have app names as the prefixes followed by _ then the model name.

For renaming them we cab use db_table parameter

class TempUser(models.Model):
    first_name = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    . . .
    class Meta:
        db_table = "temp_user"
