#15033 closed Bug (duplicate)

sqlindexes doesn't create indexes for ForeignKeys on normal ManyToManyFields

Reported by: cdestigter Owned by: nobody
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version: 1.2
Severity: Normal Keywords:

this comment implies that the ForeignKeys created by ManyToManyField tables should also have indexes (makes sense, right? Otherwise we'll have to always create them with custom SQL, or define a through relation every time, gross.)

However sqlindexes doesn't create the indexes. It does create the (from, to) unique constraints, but that's actually not very useful for many queries...

The fix is to change django/core/management/

for model in models.get_models(app):


for model in models.get_models(app, include_auto_created=True):

Tested in 1.2.4 and trunk (r15153).

  • Component changed from Core framework to Database layer (models, ORM)
  • Needs documentation set
  • Triage Stage changed from Ready for checkin to Accepted

I think this needs a documentation change, like the note about the new index here:

I'm guessing Russell overlooked that, or clicked 'Ready for checkin' instead of 'Accepted', and I'll adjust as I think necessary - apologies to Russell if I've misunderstood something.
