#15121 closed (duplicate)

ForeignKey cascading deletes fail with Integrity Error when to_field attribute set to field other than primary key

ForeignKey cascading delete fails with Integrity Error when to_field argument set to field other than primary key. Setting the on_delete argument doesn't change this behavior either.

For example:

models.ForeignKey(Design, related_name='reports', to_field="uuid", on_delete=models.CASCADE)

This is actually a symptom of #11319. If fixing #11319 turns out to be too difficult to do before 1.3, the deletion code could potentially work around it so deletions don't fail - but that's a last resort. Marking as duplicate.
