How do I get the SQL that Django will use on the database from a QuerySet object? I'm trying to debug some strange behavior, but I'm not sure what queries are going to the database. Thanks for your help.
You print the queryset's
>>> queryset = MyModel.objects.all() >>> print(queryset.query) SELECT "myapp_mymodel"."id", ... FROM "myapp_mymodel"
from django.contrib.auth.models import User print User.objects.filter(last_name__icontains = 'ax').query
It should also be mentioned that if you have DEBUG = True, then all of your queries are logged, and you can get them by accessing connection.queries:
from django.db import connections connections['default'].queries
The django debug toolbar project uses this to present the queries on a page in a neat manner.
