How to limit the maximum value of a numeric field in a Django model?

You can use Django’s built-in validators—

from django.db.models import IntegerField, Model
from django.core.validators import MaxValueValidator, MinValueValidator

class CoolModelBro(Model):
    limited_integer_field = IntegerField(

Edit: When working directly with the model, make sure to call the model full_clean method before saving the model in order to trigger the validators. This is not required when using ModelForm since the forms will do that automatically.
