#14357 new Bug

Prevent innapropriate order-based grouping on values+annotate queries

Reported by: outofculture Owned by:
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version:
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: yes
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


class Foo(models.Model):
    name = models.TextField()
    type = models.TextField()

    class Meta:
        ordering = ["name",]


The above code fails to generate the expected result without adding .order_by() to the query set.

Ticket #10574 called this fixed with documentation, but indicated a proper fix would be preferred once backwards compatibility wasn't an issue. Lest this fall off the radar for being closed, I am putting this ticket in for 2.0.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

possible fallback orderings:

  • pk
  • [the ordering fields] & [the fields referenced in the .values]

(that was a set & operator. sorry for the confusing notation.)

possible fallback orderings:

  • pk
  • only those fields which are in both the ordering and the values
  • all fields in the ordering which are not also in an annotate

attached unordering.patch is a poor attempt at changing the ordering.
