Validating a model

Thus, you should always return a nice, human-readable representation of the model from the The logic here is that if you change the URL structure of your objects, even for something simple such as correcting a spelling error, you don’t want to have to track down every place that the URL might be created. Both of these methods will perform their queries using the default manager for the model.If you need to emulate filtering used by a custom manager, or want to perform one-off custom filtering, both methods also accept optional keyword arguments, which should be in the format described in .The example below shows how one can reload all of the instance’s fields when a deferred field is reloaded: This method should be used to provide custom model validation, and to modify attributes on your model if desired.

By selecting the options below, the validation wizard will check for these conditions and raise an error if they exist.

Deselecting these options will ignore these conditions.

imposes restrictions on the model, to ensure (for example) that the model will save data that matches the corresponding database table.

A model can validate data before passing it on to a data store such as a database to ensure that it conforms to the backend schema.

It should be very rare that you’ll need to use these parameters.

Django will almost always do the right thing and trying to override that will lead to errors that are difficult to track down. Using , only the fields named in that list will be updated.Since pickle compatibility errors can be difficult to diagnose, such as silently corrupted objects, a in a number of places.Most notably, to display an object in the Django admin site and as the value inserted into a template when it displays an object.This may be desirable if you want to update just one or a few fields on an object.There will be a slight performance benefit from preventing all of the model fields from being updated in the database. This only deletes the object in the database; the Python instance will still exist and will still have data in its fields.Note that when deferred fields are accessed, the loading of the deferred field’s value happens through this method.
