Djongo (mongoDb) - Django rest framework Problem with search on JsonFields

I have a problem with filtering on JsonFIleds in Django REST API on MongoDB. I use djongo to connect with MongoDB.

Every time I get this error:
raise FieldError(
Unsupported lookup ‘seq’ for JSONField or join on the field not permitted.
[11/May/2021 10:21:00] “GET /rest/broker/topic/?decode_message_seq=34 HTTP/1.1” 500 21577

I would like to search for information in saved json in the database. In the code below it tries to search for data where the decode_message field contains the seq field. I searched the forums and documentation and couldn’t find an answer to my bug.


from django.db import models
from djongo.models import JSONField, DjongoManager

class Topic(models.Model):
    topic = models.TextField(max_length=250)
    message = JSONField()
    decode_message = JSONField(blank=True, null=True)
    create_at = models.DateTimeField(auto_now_add=True, null=True)
    objects = DjongoManager()


from .models import Topic
from .utilis import decodeMqttMessage
from rest_framework import serializers

class TopicSerializer(serializers.HyperlinkedModelSerializer):
    message = serializers.JSONField()
    decode_message = serializers.JSONField()

class Meta:
    model = Topic
    fields = ['id', 'topic', 'message', 'decode_message', 'create_at']

    def create(self, dict, *args, **kwargs):
        topic = dict.get('topic', None)
        message = dict.get('message', None)
        decode_message = decodeMqttMessage(message)

        new_broker_info = Topic.objects.create(topic=topic, message=message, decode_message=decode_message)

        return new_broker_info


import django_filters
from .models import Topic

class TopicFilter(django_filters.rest_framework.FilterSet):
    decode_message_seq = django_filters.CharFilter(field_name="decode_message__seq", lookup_expr='icontains')

class Meta:
    model = Topic
    fields = ["id", "topic", "decode_message_seq", "create_at"]
