Django HttpRequest.user attribute

in my my middleware is

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = [ "django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware", "django.middleware.common.CommonMiddleware", "django.middleware.csrf.CsrfViewMiddleware", "django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware", "django.contrib.auth.middleware.SessionAuthenticationMiddleware", "django.contrib.messages.middleware.MessageMiddleware", "django.middleware.clickjacking.XFrameOptionsMiddleware", ]

and in my registered model I have the imports

from django.http import HttpRequest from django.contrib.auth.models import User

My question is why my request does not show a user attribute?

I am running the production server and when I save with the above the server stops with an AttributeError: type object 'HttpRequest' has no attribute 'user' cause I call HttpRequest.user

( In this answer: nothing additional is required and the Django docs were not helpful )
