  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

This usage is incorrect. To limit the fields returned by values() they must be added as arguments. (ex. CatalogCategories.objects.values('id', 'category') ) Since you have not specified any fields, they will all be returned.
Documentation can be found at
I'm changing this ticket to invalid.

Just to clarify what agabel said: defer and only are about which attributes of an model instance are lazily loaded. values returns something entirely different, so it wouldn't make sense for it to be affected.
