mysql backend raises Warning exceptions for ignorable info notices

Reported by: Walter Doekes Owned by: nobody
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version: dev
Severity: Keywords: mysql warnings note
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


For example, when I use the custom /sql/mymodel.mysql.sql with something like:


python-mysqldb raises a Database.Warning to warn us of the info that the table did not exist.

mysql> drop view if exists myview;
Query OK, 0 rows affected, 1 warning (0.00 sec)

mysql> show warnings;
| Level | Code | Message                     |
| Note  | 1051 | Unknown table 'mydb.myview' | 
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

This Warning gets propagated when DEBUG==True (because it's not filterwarning'd) and then the rest of my custom SQL does not get run.

I propose a check against 'Note' level warnings, ignoring those. See my attached patch.
(I created a third function to avoid more duplicate code. I don't know if this extra call decreases performancy any.)

I disagree that Django should be throwing away data returned by the cursor. If you don't want notes to be reported by the cursor, might I suggest the use of the sql_notes variable.

Okay, that works for me. Thanks :)

A possible implementation for others experiencing the same issue:

class suppressed_sql_notes(object):
    Pimp a cursor object to suppress SQL notes and re-enable the
    original configuration when done.

    Use this in a with statement, like so:
      with suppressed_sql_notes(connection.cursor()) as cursor:
        cursor.execute('STUFF THAT YIELDS HARMLESS NOTICES')

    See django bug #12293 marked as WONTFIX.
    def __init__(self, cursor):
        self.cursor = cursor
    def __enter__(self):
        self.cursor.execute('''SET @OLD_SQL_NOTES=@@SQL_NOTES, SQL_NOTES=0;''')
        return self.cursor
    def __exit__(self, type, value, traceback):
        self.cursor.execute('''SET SQL_NOTES=@OLD_SQL_NOTES;''')

And those two SQL statements at the beginning and end of your custom SQL files.
