#21831 closed Bug

Cannot run tests without contrib.auth in INSTALLED_APPS — at Initial Version

Reported by: Carl Meyer Owned by: nobody
Component: Core (Other) Version: master
Severity: Release blocker Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no

This is a result of the interaction of d818e0c9b2b88276cc499974f9eee893170bf0a8 (the new checks framework) and #20915 (the dependency that django.test has on django.contrib.auth).

django.test imports a number of login/logout-related methods from contrib.auth, in order to support auth-related features of the test client.

The check_user_model check for contrib.auth is registered in django/contrib/auth/ as a side effect of importing anything from within django.contrib.auth.

Actually executing the check_user_model check when contrib.auth is not installed results in "LookupError: No installed app with label 'auth'." on the cls = apps.get_model(app_name, model_name) line.
