I'm using ModelAdmin in my CMS, and I have a problem with the search form. I have a properties table, linked with a models table who is linked with a unit table. I mean, one properties has many models, and each model has many units.

The ModelAdmin has 3 managed models (properties, models and units), and the problem is when I have to search in units. I would like to search within the properties, and show the units that belongs to the property. I have try to do this with searchcontext, but this affects the other two searches as well (properties and models).

I don't know if there is any way to do that. Any help is really appreciated!

Thank you very much

Hi again,

I've found the solution by myself, I've been trying really complicated things instead the simplest of all: add in the searchable_fields the Models.PropertiesID

So it works!
