blank=False,null=False not working in models code Django

class Url(models.Model):

This is my models code....and when i make an object with no arguments..the object is created and is saved to the DB even after writing blank=False,null=False and the URL is also not checked for existence.If i supply it a dead link, it works but it shouldn't!

What is the problem with my code?

  1. As you've seen, django does not validate model on save() by default, but your database should've thrown an error when inserting NULL value, I would check the schema to be sure.
  2. Use URLValidator

So i got it working by modifying my 'url' to url=models.URLField(verify_exists=True,max_length=200,default=None,blank=False,unique=True) and validating it by object.clean_fields().

If you don't use valid values or empty values it throws errors like this

ValidationError: {'url': [u'This URL appears to be a broken link.'] }

ValidationError: {'url': [u'This field cannot be blank.'] }
