#11561 new Bug

raw_id_fields requires that the user has change permissions on the model class that is being linked to

Unlike a plain ForeignKey field which uses a select box, the raw_id_fields listing/search interface requires that the user has change permissions on the model in your ForeignKey.

Possible fix would be to add a has_view_permission and the changelist_view would check against that permission instead of has_change_permission

I bet there's a more comprehensive way to deal with things like this.

For example, a generic admin view which uses contenttypes in situations like this could be created instead of the current limitation of only viewing other registered models' changelists.

  • milestone set to 2.0

#15185 is another use case where the has_change_permission gets in the way of displaying the change list. I'm getting more and more incline to introduce a new "list" (or "read", or "view", or "browse") standard permission so you can display the "change" list without having change permissions. A bit like the difference that exist between "r" and "w" in the Unix file system. Now that might be something for version 2.0 as I imagine this would be seriously backwards incompatible.

On a related note, see #8936 about adding view-only functionality to the admin.

However there may be better ways,
