#2647 closed defect (duplicate)

Error when changing ManyToManyField referencing "self" with raw_id_admin

Reported by: dart@… Owned by: adrian
Component: contrib.admin Version:
Severity: normal Keywords:

When a model field is defined as follows:

subcomponents = models.ManyToManyField("self", blank=True, null=True,

#raw_id_admin=True, # <- Django bug activated: raw on "self" broken

(with the comment removed) the admin interface will raise an ObjectNotFound exception when you edit an object of this type (and you don't have to change this particular field).

I narrowed it down through trial-and-error to that combination of parameters.

Appears to be a duplicate of #1816; fix for raw_id_admin was added in #3858/#3859.
