#33818 closed Bug (duplicate)

BaseListView get(...) loose kwargs calling self.get_context_data

In BaseListView in /views/generic/list.py the get function does not pass ('**kwargs') to self.get_context_data at line 174.

        context = self.get_context_data()
        return self.render_to_response(context)

I believe should be

        context = self.get_context_data(**kwargs)
        return self.render_to_response(context)

In my code there is this url pointing to a ListView

path('device/<int:device_id>/history', MyListView.as_view(), name='my_view_name'),

and in the ListView the device_id is lost unless I add the **kwargs as shown above

Duplicate of #17242. The current behavior is intended. TemplateView adds kwargs to context, but there's no plan to add that behavior to other views (see #19878).
