#25883 closed Bug (fixed)

Admin Delete Page Incorrectly Counts Related Objects

Reported by: James Pulec Owned by: Sergey Fedoseev

In the case where we're deleting an object (A) that has dependent foreign object (B) that points to it, and a different dependent foreign object (C) that also has B as a dependent foreign object, the admin will incorrectly double count this object. As an example:

class Spam(models.Model):

class Egg(models.Model):
  spam = ForeignKey(Spam)

class Shrubbery(models.Model):
  spam = ForeignKey(Spam)
  egg = ForeignKey(Egg)

spam = Spam.objects.create()
egg = Egg.objects.create(spam=spam)
shrubbery = Shrubbery.objects.create(spam=spam, egg=egg)

If we issue a delete on an instance of Spam in this case, the admin will state that we are deleting 2 instances of Shrubbery, even though we are really only deleting 1 instance of Shrubbery that is attached both directly to the instance of Spam, and to the instance of Egg that is a dependent object of spam.
