Django admin actions: _selected_action disregarded when `difference` is applied to queryset via filters

Description (last modified by Andreas Galazis)

I have an admin with filters where one of them is:

Code highlighting:

class NegatedMyFiledFilter(MyFieldListFilter):
    title = ('excluded Fields')
    parameter_name = 'nonField'

    def queryset(self, request, queryset):
        if self.values():
            queryset_to_negate = super(
                NegatedMyFieldFilter, self
            ).queryset(request, queryset)
            return queryset.difference(queryset_to_negate)

Where MyFieldListFilter is a filter that extends admin.SimpleListFilter
When the above filter is applied(alone or in combination with others) _selected_action is not respected when applying an action and as a result actions get applied to all records, not just the selected ones
As a hack I ended up doing in one of my custom actions (although this is applicable to all actions including build in ones like delete):

Code highlighting:

  qs_ids = queryset.values_list('pk', flat=True)
  selected_ids = request.POST.getlist('_selected_action',qs_ids)
  return TimeSheet.objects.filter(

but I was expecting the framework to do the second filtering for me
The above happens in version 1.11.13

Can you explain why Django is at fault and propose a fix?

Hi Andreas.

I can't see the issue with what you've provided here. Can you please create a test case or a minimal project that reproduces the issue?

At that point we'll be able to assess if there's a genuine issue here, or whether it's something else that's going on.
