I have two Django models which inherit from a base class:
- Request - Inquiry - Analysis
Request has two foreign keys to the built-in User model.
create_user = models.ForeignKey(User, related_name='requests_created') assign_user = models.ForeignKey(User, related_name='requests_assigned')
For some reason I’m getting the error
Reverse accessor for 'Analysis.assign_user' clashes with reverse accessor for 'Inquiry.assign_user'.
Everything I’ve read says that setting the
related_name should prevent the clash, but I’m still getting the same error. Can anyone think of why this would be happening? Thanks!
Now we will see solution for issue: Django: reverse accessors for foreign keys clashing
related_name would ensure that the fields were not conflicting with each other, but you have two models, each of which has both of those fields. You need to put the name of the concrete model in each one, which you can do with some special string substitution:
create_user = models.ForeignKey(User, related_name='%(class)s_requests_created')
