Description (last modified by ramiro)
Problem is it doesn't use the real database column name but rather a derived att_name value (used to represent the final Django model field name) when looking up the meta information about FK and indexes the DB backend provides via the DatabaseIntrospection.get_relations() method. This fails for database engines that are case sensitive (i.e. all but Oracle).
Also, because of a related problem, it can attempt to use that same innaccurate att_name instead of the real table column when trying to introspect the db_column field option.
This models.py file:
class Magazine(models.Model): ident = models.AutoField(primary_key=True, db_column='Ident') class ReaderComment(models.Model): text = models.TextField(max_length=30, primary_key=True, db_column='reader_comment')
when syncdbed to the database (sqlite3) and the introspected back gives:
class IntrosBugMagazine(models.Model): ident = models.IntegerField() class Meta: db_table = u'intros_bug_magazine' class IntrosBugReadercomment(models.Model): reader_comment = models.TextField(primary_key=True) class Meta: db_table = u'intros_bug_readercomment'
Note the ident field of the Magazine model is missing:
- The 'primary_key=True'option(that's because the syncdb command didn't make use of the 'primary_key': True info the database backend introspection support code correctly returned for it.)
- The db_column='Ident' option
