It works fine for me, and I've got a test suite to back up my assertion.

If you're having difficulties using a feature, your first stop should be to ask on django-users.

I have the same issue with 1.2.

The code M.objects.using('dbname').raw('...') causes the error: 'QuerySet' object has no attribute 'raw'.

The 'raw' method needs some way to specify which database to use. Perhaps a signature such as: .raw(sql, params, database=default)

  • Has patch set

I attached a patch that implements the following signature: .raw(sql, params, using=default).

Such an method already exists:


raw() isn't a queryset method, it's on the manager only. This is because you can't arbitrarily stick raw() on the end of any query, because the query might be filtered or otherwise modified in a way that raw() won't interact with.

You can call using() on the end of a raw() because a raw() queryset has already locked out other filter()-type options.
