ContentType.objects.get_for_model will cause the error in django.test.TestCase

Reported by: bear330 Owned by: nobody

Severity: Normal Keywords: ContentType, permissions. constraint

If you call ContentType.objects.get_for_model in test case which extends django.test.TestCase, it will:

_mysql_exceptions.IntegrityError: (1452, 'Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (mercurius/auth_permission, CONSTRAINT content_type_id_refs_id_728de91f FOREIGN KEY (content_type_id) REFERENCES django_content_type (id))')

This is because the ContentType.objects.get_for_model will cache the result. The django.test.TestCase truncates all table after run test method and call which will call ContentType.objects.get_for_model.

At this time, ContentType.objects.get_for_model won't create new content type data into django_contenttype table, it will get the ContentType object from cache.

Permission.objects.get_or_create will occur database constraint error.

All the code which call ContentType.objects.get_for_model can not be called in django.test.TestCase, this is a big trouble.

I can't reproduce this problem. If you can provide an actual test case that fails, feel free to reopen this ticket.
