- filter admin foreignkey
- 3 (after 5 ratings)
Sometimes you need to filter foreignkey choices in admin interface, to objects created by user or meeting some other condition. In django 1.0 there is no formfield_for_foreignkey method in ModelAdmin class so we have to make a workaround. Here is the solution I have found to be the easiest for me.

class MyAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin): def get_form(self, request, obj=None, **kwargs): form = super(MyAdmin,self).get_form(self,request, obj,**kwargs) # form class is created per request by modelform_factory function # so it's safe to modify #we modify the the queryset form.base_fields['foreign_key_field].queryset = form.base_fields['foreign_key_field].queryset.filter(user=request.user) return form
