#11821 closed (duplicate)

Objects with multiple foreign key relationships to the same table will not correctly warn about deletion of related objects

Reported by: shields@… Owned by: nobody
Component: contrib.admin Version: 1.1
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: mshields@… Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:



class Thing(models.Model):
    foreground_color = models.ForeignKey(Color, related_name='thing_foreground')
    background_color = models.ForeignKey(Color, related_name='thing_background')

The admin delete view for a Color will correctly warn about the cascade deletions of all Things with that foreground_color. However, it will not show the deletions of Things with that background_color, and they will be deleted. This is surprising and dangerous behavior.

A patch and regression test are included.

This is a dupe of #6191. You might want to attach your patch there, with a .diff extension so that it will hopefully display nicely in trac.
