Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
I have the following query:
profiles = session.query(profile.name).filter(and_(profile.email == email, profile.password == password_hash))
How do I check if there is a row and how do I just return the first (should only be one if there is a match)?
query.one() to get one, and exactly one result. In all other cases it will raise an exception you can handle:
from sqlalchemy.orm.exc import NoResultFound from sqlalchemy.orm.exc import MultipleResultsFound try: user = session.query(User).one() except MultipleResultsFound, e: print e # Deal with it except NoResultFound, e: print e # Deal with that as well
query.first(), which will give you just the first result of possibly many, without raising those exceptions. But since you want to deal with the case of there being no result or more than you thought,
query.one() is exactly what you should use.
You can use the
first() function on the Query object. This will return the first result, or None if there are no results.
result = session.query(profile.name).filter(...).first() if not result: print 'No result found'
Alternatively you can use
one(), which will give you the only item, but raise exceptions for a query with zero or multiple results.
from sqlalchemy.orm.exc import NoResultFound, MultipleResultsFound try: result = session.query(profile.name).filter(...).one() print result except NoResultFound: print 'No result was found' except MultipleResultsFound: print 'Multiple results were found'
Assuming you have a model User, you can get the first result with:
If the table is empty, it will return None.
Use one_or_none(). Return at most one result or raise an exception.
Returns None if the query selects no rows.
