Description (last modified by Alex Mykyta)

This is an issue related to #27118. Anthony King commented on it but that issue is closed so I am opening a new one. The field validation introduced in 1.11 update_or_create will throw a FieldError if a defaults argument contains a value that is set through an @property.setter on that model. On the other hand create continues to function correctly. Ideally they'd behave consistently.

Here is an example.

# create works, update_or_create does not. Should neither work?
class Choice(models.Model):
        poll = models.ForeignKey(Poll)
        choice_text = models.CharField(max_length=200)
        votes = models.IntegerField(default=0)

        _credit = models.DecimalField('Credit', decimal_places = 5, max_digits=11, null=True)

        def credit(self):
                return 0 if self._credit is None else self._credit

        def credit(self, value):
                self._credit = value

In [7]: mk = Choice.objects.create(credit=123.3, poll_id=1)

In [8]: mk
Out[8]: <Choice: >

In [9]: mk.__dict__
{'_credit': 123.3,
 '_state': <django.db.models.base.ModelState at 0x1116e3650>,
 'choice_text': u'',
 'id': 2,
 'poll_id': 1,
 'votes': 0}

In [10]: ok = Choice.objects.update_or_create(defaults={'credit':123.3}, poll_id=1)
