#2238 closed enhancement (wontfix)

select_related should fetch reverse relations

Reported by: derelm Owned by: adrian

Severity: normal Keywords:

Has patch: no Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


select_related on a certain model A only fetches tables that are referenced from within that model A.

i think it should also fetch those models B that define a relation to A.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This wouldn't work, if you think about it, because of the nature of the underlying SQL.

Maybe I didn't understand this report correctly, but claims that this actually works in Rails.

  • Resolution wontfix deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

I know this is quite old, but is this planned to be included in the orm at some point ?
If not, is it possible to get an explanation on why is this considered impossible ?

Please read:, which notes you should ask for a wontfix explanation on the django-developers list, not by reopening the ticket.

Since r12307 the ORM does follow reverse one-to-one fields.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
