Handling django admin query params automatic redirects

I need to pass some data to a custom django admin view (rendering a graph)
I want to pass it through queryparms, my problem that if I pass any queryparam which isn't a model attribute I get redirected to ...path_to_admin/model_name/?e=1
How can I disable this behavior for the model?

I understand It's probably something with get_urls, but missing something here

Just an idea: Did you try popping the extra params in something like get_queryset?

This sounds like handling by a non-custom view. How did you define the
custom view?

One thing that seems particularly likely is that you add your custom
URL after, instead of before, the regular URLs.

See the second note box here:

Follow up, after diving into this, I've found out that the Changeset class inside the changeview has a method causing this error. So I can override the changeset class and the changeview method of the admin model class and it would work. 
I also found out that a far easier and probably more "djangoish" solution is just a add an admin filter with those query params, and not use them to filter the queryset. thus the whole inner django machinery treats those params as legit as they are tied to  a "filter" :) 
Thanks for the pointers !
