how to use "in" with multiple unique_together fileds

I want to get many result from multiple unique_together fileds.
now i can use

ContentType.objects.filter(Q(app_label=‘auth’, model=‘user’) | Q(app_label=‘pxuser’, model=‘user’))

it got sql

(‘SELECT, django_content_type.app_label, django_content_type.model FROM django_content_type WHERE ((django_content_type.app_label = %s AND django_content_type.model = %s) OR (django_cont ent_type.app_label = %s AND django_content_type.model = %s))’, (‘auth’, ‘user’, ‘pxuser’, ‘user’))

is there any orm way to got sql like

select * from django_content_type where (app_label, model) in ((‘auth’, ‘group’), (‘pxuser’, ‘user’));

You’re looking to do perform your WHERE clause on a ROW. Or at least that’s the name for it in PostgreSQL. I know this is possible for PostgreSQL, though I haven’t tried it for other databases. The solution is a bit of a hack, but it does what you want.

from django.db.models import Func, Value

app_model_pairs = [('auth', 'group'), ('pxuser', 'user')]
    app_model_name=Func('app_label', 'model', function="ROW"),
).filter(app_model_name__in=[Value(*pair) for pair in app_model_pairs])

mysql not support ROW.

in mysql the sql will get right result

select * from django_content_type where (app_label, model) in ((‘auth’, ‘group’), (‘pxuser’, ‘user’));

I played around with mysql a bit to find an answer for you. Turns out MySQL doesn’t like ROW constructors in the returned SELECT clause. Everything else, works well from what I can see. You’ll need to use a Subquery to avoid returning the row constructor:

subquery = ContentType.objects.annotate(
    app_model_name=Func('app_label', 'model', function="ROW"),
    app_model_name__in=[Value(pair) for pair in app_model_pairs],

this is ok for ContentType, but in my models(unique_together has diffrent field type)

class TestModel(model.BaseModel):
     field1 = models.CharField(max_length=100)
     field2 = models.IntegerField()
     class Meta:
         unique_together = (('field1', 'field2'),)
subquery = TestModel.objects.annotate(
    test=Func('field1', 'field2', function="ROW"),
    test__in=[Value(('a', 1), ('b', 2))],

" django.core.exceptions.FieldError: Expression contains mixed types: CharField, IntegerField. You must set output_field."
in Func._resolve_output_field()

set output_field=models.CharField() to Func got expected result

subquery = TestModel.objects.annotate(
    test=Func('field1', 'field2', function="ROW", output_field=models.CharField()),
    test__in=[Value(('a', 1), ('b', 2))],

I’m glad you were able to figure it out.

this code is ok for mysql and postgresql. It not use subquery. Is there any way I can set annotation_mask in queryset(function annotate or other)?

many_queryset = queryset.annotate(**{
    temp_name: Func(*field_names, function="ROW", output_field=models.CharField())
    "%s__in" % temp_name: [Value(pair) for pair in field_values]

this code will support both mysql,postgresql and oracle and it donot use subquery
