#10955 closed (fixed)

`select_related()` doesn't work with proxy models.

Reported by: mrmachine Owned by: jacob
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version: master
Severity: Keywords: proxy model select_related
Cc: mitsuhiko Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


I get a traceback if I call get() on a queryset for a proxy model which is using select_related(), or simply no objects if I try to access the queryset itself.

# models

class Country(models.Model):
	name = models.CharField(max_length=50, unique=True)

class State(models.Model):
	name = models.CharField(max_length=50)
	country = models.ForeignKey(Country)

	def __unicode__(self):

class StateProxy(State):
	class Meta:
		proxy = True

# interactive shell

>>> country = Country.objects.create(name='Australia')
>>> state = State.objects.create(name='New South Wales', country=country)

>>> State.objects.select_related()
[<State: New South Wales>]

>>> StateProxy.objects.select_related()

# should have got [<State: New South Wales>]

>>> StateProxy.objects.get(name='New South Wales')
<StateProxy: New South Wales>

>>> StateProxy.objects.select_related().get(name='New South Wales')

initial patch, fixes select_related + filter on proxy, and type issue on subproxy

comment:1 Changed 7 years ago by clement

  • Has patch set
  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

There was a possible bug on subproxy (proxy of proxy) manager creation, giving the following results on the API tests:

>>> MyPersonProxy.objects.all() 
[<MyPerson: Bazza del Frob>, <MyPerson: Foo McBar>, <MyPerson: homer>]

bypassed that by forcing manager inheritance (of abstract and concrete managers) from the model base (before skipping proxy for populating fields), but not sure this is the needed behaviour here.

Patch mostly adresses proxy skipping when joining fields (traversing multiple levels of nested proxies) and ancestors chain when populating select fields on proxy models. Added also some regression tests on proxy + model inheritance, subproxy select_related().filter(...), and ForeignKey( proxy / subproxy )

I have a patch on another issue (I forget the number) that solves the manager issue.

(In [10738]) Fixed #10953, #10955: proxies of proxies now work correctly, though I still don't quite understand why you'd want to do such a thing. Thanks, Armin Ronacher.
