You can change the log level of the logger taking care of these messages. Setting the level to WARNING will remove the request messages and keep warnings and errors:

import logging

logging.getLogger("requests").setLevel(logging.WARNING)
logging.getLogger("urllib3").setLevel(logging.WARNING)

In settings.py File

While using Django or other platforms, you can also change the logger in the settings provided by the framework. The following example is from Django:

'urllib3': {
        'handlers': ['file'],
        'level': logging.WARNING
    }
Copied!
