Description (last modified by Mike Hansen)

Currently, RelatedManager.get_prefetch_queryset returns self.field.related_query_name() as the cache_name. In the case where no related_name has been set on the ForeignKey, then this does not match with the through_attr used by get_prefetcher.

Using the models in tests/prefetch_related/,


will use a through_attr of "bookreview_set", but "bookreview" is what will be placed in _prefetched_objects_cache.

I think related_manager.field.remote_field.get_accessor_name() should be used instead. is a pull request which fixes this issue
