In admin, filtering on some list_filter fields raises SuspiciousOperation

I just upgraded from 1.1.2 to 1.1.4 because of the security fixes. Now, when I filter by some fields on some models, it raises a SuspiciousOperation exception. In the case I'm looking at now, the field is listed in the list_filter attribute of the model's admin. My understanding is that I should be able to filter on fields that are in this list.

Thanks for your help!

Please post a reduced version of your model(s) and field(s), plus the respective ModelAdmin.

Closing invalid -- without more information, it's impossible to tell if you're hitting the expected behavior covered by the security fix, or some other problem.

Please reopen if you can provide a simple example demonstrating the problem.

from django.db import models

class ManagedItem(models.Model):

class Story(ManagedItem):

class ArticleChannel(ManagedItem):

class Article(Story):
    channel = models.ForeignKey(ArticleChannel)

from django.contrib import admin
from django import forms
from models import (Article, ArticleChannel)

class ManagedItemAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):

class ArticleChannelAdminForm(forms.ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = ArticleChannel

class ArticleChannelAdmin(ManagedItemAdmin):
    form = ArticleChannelAdminForm

class ArticleAdminForm(forms.ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = Article

class ArticleAdmin(ManagedItemAdmin):
    form = ArticleAdminForm
    list_filter = ('channel',), ArticleChannelAdmin), ArticleAdmin)

Create 2 ArticleChannels. Then go to the Article admin and try to filter by channel.

In [15555]:

[1.1.X] Fixed #15306 -- Replaced 1.1.X implementation of admin changelist filtering security fix (r15031/r15033) with the one from trunk so another valid filter usage scenario (using model inheritance) is still possible. Thanks dbenamy for reporting this. Refs #15032.

Replying to dbenamy@…:

After the security fix was applied it was found that it had to be losened for the 1.2.X branch because of the kind of problems you report. It was done correctly and in time for the 1.2.4 release but I forgot to backport it to the old 1.1.x branch and so releases 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 shipped with an admin filtering security check more strict than necessary.

To get this change in your copy of Django you will need to update it to a development checkout of the releases/1.1.X SVN branch at revision r15555 or newer or apply manually the patch of such commit to your 1.1.4 installation.

There really should be a note added to I wasted a lot of time upgrading to a release, qaing it, and then pulling out a minimal test case, all for a known bug.

Do you have any idea when 1.1.5 will be released with this fix? Or if I have to upgrade to an svn revision, does 15555 also include other things that aren't production ready?
