Description (last modified by russellm)
Add/create is currently disabled on m2m relations that use an intermediate table. This is due to the fact that values to populate the intermediate table cannot be provided using the add/create calls.
However, what if the intermediate model has reasonable default values, so
one can assign model A to B without extra info?
In my case, I just want to syncronize 2 databases, and I would like to
mark relationships, that are already synced. So, in my case, the
intermediate table contains a boolean, which defaults to false, and
will become true, when the data is synced.
In this case adding relations without explicitly creating the intermediate table would be great.
