Filtering Many-to-Many relationship by Relationship field in Django
I'm trying to filter many-to-many relationship by some through Class field.
Quoting the Django documentation, i will explain my goal
class Person(models.Model): name = models.CharField(max_length=128) def __unicode__(self): return self.name class Group(models.Model): name = models.CharField(max_length=128) members = models.ManyToManyField(Person, through='Membership') def __unicode__(self): return self.name class Membership(models.Model): person = models.ForeignKey(Person) group = models.ForeignKey(Group) date_joined = models.DateField() invite_reason = models.CharField(max_length=64)
In this example my goal sould be filter many to many relationship and obtain only the Person who has joined some Group starting from certain date (date_joined field).
Is it possible?
You can query across relationships with the django ORM (or in this case the reverse relationship):
person = Person.objects.filter( membership__group=example_group, membership__date_joined__gte=example_date )
