Getting the SQL from a Django QuerySet [duplicate]
from django.contrib.auth.models import Userprint 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 connectionsconnections['default'].queries
The django debug toolbar project uses this to present the queries on a page in a neat manner.
The accepted answer did not work for me when using Django 1.4.4. Instead of the raw query, a reference to the Query object was returned:
<django.db.models.sql.query.Query object at 0x10a4acd90>.
The following returned the query:
all() queryset.query.__str__()queryset = MyModel.objects.
