... 

Read more about authentication and permission DRF Documentation.

Customize serialization

At first, you must define your serializer class Make serializers.py file in blog Open blog/serializers.py and make serializer like this:

from rest_framework import serializers
from .models import *
class ProductSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
	class Meta:
		model = Product
		feilds = ('id', 'title')
class CategorySerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
	class Meta:
		model = Category
		fields = ('id','title)
		
class SingleProductSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
	category = CategorySerializer(read_only=True)
	class Meta:
		model = Product
		feilds = ('id', 'title', 'summery', 'description', 'category')
from .serializers import ProductSerializer, SingleProductSerializer
@api_admin.register(Product)  
class ProductApiAdmin(BaseRestFulModelAdmin):  
    serializer_class = ProductSerializer
    single_serializer_class = SingleProductSerializer

serializer_class use for serialize list of objects but single_serializer_class use for serializer view signle object, update, partial update and create.

Add a custom route with permission

@api_admin.register(Product)  
class MyCustomApiAdmin(BaseRestFulModelAdmin):

	@api_admin.action(permission='product.view_product', detail=True, methods=['GET'], url_path=r'my-custom-action/(?P<another_key>[^/.]+)')  
	def my_custom_action(self, request, pk, another_key):
		pass
		## Do what you want to do
		## this action make url like this /apiadmin/blog/product/2/my-custom-action/XXX

If you want to except permission you just send permission=True, for creating custom permission you can pass closure function or lambda to permission like this permission=lambda: view, action, request, obj=None: True
