I added class meta abstract and still not working

The error message says it all: factory_boy will only allow you to instantiate from a factory if said factory has a Meta.model and is not marked Meta.abstract = True.

Typically, one would use:

class MyFactory(...):
  class Meta:
    model = SomeModel

In advanced cases, some projects might have abstract factories; in which case that abstractness must be disabled:

class SomeAbstractFactory(...):
  class Meta:
    model = MyModel
    abstract = True

class MyFactory(SomeAbstractFactory):
  class Meta:
    abstract = False

In your code example, you have written model: User instead of model = User; it can easily be fixed with:

class UserFactory(factory.django.DjangoModelFactory):
  class Meta:
    model = User
    # (No "abstract = " clause)
