#29487 closed Bug (fixed)

Admin "read only" doesn't check change permission for object specifically

When determining which fields are read-only, ModelAdmin._changeform_view calls ModelAdmin.has_change_permission(request) without the object parameter - so, even if the user has read-only permission, only fields returned by get_readonly_fields() are included. However, subsequent calls to has_change_permission to build the form do use the object parameter - so, all fields are left out of the form, with the assumption that they are included in get_readonly_fields(). This leads to a traceback when rendering the template, since none of the fields are present in the form. (The traceback is included below.)

Changing has_change_permission(request) to has_change_permission(request, obj) on line 1580 of django/contrib/admin/ resolves the issue.
