#14451 closed New feature (wontfix)

add related_name to contrib.auth.models.User for 'groups'

Reported by: tvon Owned by: anonymous
Component: contrib.auth Version: 1.2
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Design decision needed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no

Would allow for

from django.contrib.auth.models import Group
group = Group.objects.all()[0]

instead of the current


You know, nexttime someone feels like kicking backwards compatibility in the groin...

This can be done with a deprecation path right now if we want to. During the transition, Group.users_set would be a property raising a deprecation warning and returning members.

However I don't know if there's much value in forcing this change upon all users of Django.

Actually, I cannot convinced myself there's enough value.
