#25686 closed Bug (fixed)

Database router without "allow_migrate" method raises exception

Reported by: Josep Cugat Owned by: nobody

Severity: Release blocker Keywords: allow_migrate

It seems Django 1.8.6 has introduced an error when using a database router that doesn't have a "allow_migrate" method. The router we are using is PinningMasterSlaveRouter, which has a "allow_syncdb" method but no "allow_migrate". This was working with Django 1.8.5 (as seen in #24532), and it seems that the commit which introduced this is e2ea30c.

The traceback:

./ migrate

Hi jcugat, thanks for spotting this issue.

Please rebase the patch on the 1.9.x branch (which also have this issue) and add a release note for the upcoming 1.8.x release. Commiters will take care of the backporting to 1.8.x and the release note forward porting to master. I guess a simple regression test wouldn't hurt here.

Created a new PR #5557 because somehow github did not like the rebase...

Only the release note will need to be backported to stable/1.9.x and the master branch since allow_syncdb support has been dropped in 1.9
