Flask, MySQL and SQLAlchemy querying ID error

I get a weird error when I try to query an item by id. I have tried all suggestion I have found and only when doing raw query I get a proper result.

Part of the Traceback:

dict_[key] = getter(row)
TypeError: an integer is required

The query is
result = User.query.filter_by(id=idd).first()
with idd of type

The type of the ID field in MySQL db is

and the model is like this

class User(db.Model):
__tablename__ = 'user'
id = db.Column('id', db.INT, primary_key=True)
name = db.Column(db.VARCHAR, index=True)
post = db.Column(db.VARCHAR, nullable=True)
type = db.Column(db.VARCHAR)
url = db.Column(db.VARCHAR, nullable=True)
subtype = db.Column(db.VARCHAR, nullable=True)
tel = db.Column(db.VARCHAR, nullable=True)
address = db.Column(db.VARCHAR, nullable=True)
latitude = db.Column(db.FLOAT)
longitude = db.Column(db.FLOAT)
deleted = db.Column(db.Boolean, default=False, index=True)
children = db.relationship("Children")

The database is initialized as such:

app.config['SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI'] = 'mysql+pymysql://root:test@localhost/mydb'
db = SQLAlchemy(app)

What could be wrong? Any suggestions?


Turns out it was the fact that in the MySQL schema for some reason deleted was defined as a BIT type.

All type combinations in SQLAlchemy failed. I had to change the schema to make it into a TINYINT(1)
