#26373 closed Bug (fixed)

Reverse lookup with subquery with a ForeignKey with to_field set causes django.core.exceptions.FieldError

Reference pull request:

From 1.9, a model with a ForeignKey with a custom to_field set as below will error when used in a in subquery in a reverse relation context.

class Food(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=20, unique=True)

class Eaten(models.Model):
    food = models.ForeignKey(Food, models.SET_NULL, to_field="name", null=True)
    meal = models.CharField(max_length=20)

apple = Food.objects.create(name="apple")
lunch = Eaten.objects.create(food=apple, meal="lunch")
django.core.exceptions.FieldError: Cannot resolve keyword 'name' into field. Choices are: food, food_id, id, meal

The reason is a recently added support for the non-reverse in lookup support in 1.9

foreign_fields = getattr(field, 'foreign_related_fields', ())
    if len(foreign_fields) == 1 and not foreign_fields[0].primary_key:
        return self.values(foreign_fields[0].name)

Depending on the base query's (self in the above case) model (self.model), foreign_related_fields's values are not correct. Or rather, they are only correct if the base model is not the same as the field's model.

This patch (in the PR) adds a simple if statement to check that.
As far as I can tell, if the reverse lookup situation, there was no need to have any special support.
