Does not provided case when object_id is Unicode


Gives error:

UnicodeEncodeError at /admin/auth/user/ываыв/

'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 0-4: ordinal not in range(128)

Request Method: 	GET
Request URL: 	http://localhost:8000/admin/auth/user/%D1%8B%D0%B2%D0%B0%D1%8B%D0%B2/
Django Version: 	1.4
Exception Type: 	UnicodeEncodeError
Exception Value: 	

'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 0-4: ordinal not in range(128)

Python Version: 	2.6.7

Exception happened on AutoField(Field) to_python method:

msg = self.error_messages['invalid'] % str(value)

And so we have 500 but not 404.

            against the primary key field).


            queryset = self.queryset(request)

            model = queryset.model


                object_id =

AutoField doesn't seem the only field concerned.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

In [0dc904979d5b6df78662653d498c91f4d54f36c2]:

Fixed #18407 -- Made model field's to_python methods fully accept unicode.

When generating error message in to_python, any unicode string
containing non-ascii characters triggered a UnicodeEncodeError for
most field types.
