#17849 closed Bug (duplicate)

testing framework fails when contrib.auth not in settings.

Reported by: on.celebi@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Testing framework Version: 1.3
Severity: Normal Keywords: auth_user test auth
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


This is the same issue than Ticket #14632, it still exists in Django 1.3.1.
This time, it's the contenttypes app which is causing the bug because of a dependency with auth.

  • Status changed from new to closed

So you are seeing 1.3.x and this was fixed in trunk afterwards the 1.3 release. Unfortunately, according to the backporting policy in effect, such fix isn't going to be ported to 1.3.x.

Duplicate of #14632.

Sorry I wasn't clear. This is not the same issue, it has the same symptoms. This one is highly similar because with the same testcase (removing contrib.auth from INSTALLED_APPS) you obtain the same error output. But this time this is because of "contenttypes" app dependency to "auth" rather than "messages" 's one which was fixed for ticket #14632.

Maybe a better ticket would be "better dependency management between apps for the testing framework" instead of creating some tickets and fixes which just hide the error message?

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
