#29272 closed Bug (duplicate)

Queryset using order_by(F()) fails to compile with values_list

Here is a simplified version of what I am trying to do:

from django.db import models
from django.db.models import IntegerField, F, Value

class Question(models.Model):
    question_text = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published')

    def __str__(self):
        return self.question_text

Question.objects.annotate(test=Value(1, output_field=IntegerField())).order_by(F('test')).values_list('question_text')

It works without using F, or by adding the annotated value to values_list.
But I need F to be able to write F('test').asc(nulls_last=True), and I cannot modify values_list as it is added to the Queryset later in code which does not know anything about the annotation.

Could you possibly provide the exact traceback you encounter?

Also you should be able to pass your expression directly to order_by

    Value(1, output_field=IntegerField()).asc(nulls_last=True),
