H, i'd like to know how to add the hr.job field from hr.employee to project.issue kanban view.

I tried this in the model.py

class hr_employee(models.Model):
_inherit = "hr.employee"
job_id = fields.Many2one('hr.job', 'Job title')

but when defining the field in the view

<field name="job_id"/> 

 I get  

"Error details:
Field `job_id` does not exist"

I created an inherited view of the original issue kanban view

<field name="inherit_id" ref="project_issue.project_issue_kanban_view"/> 

Where else should it be defined or what exactly am I missing here?
Help appreciated.

Hi Oskar Must,

You are adding new field inside the employee table instead of project issue table.

Correct the model name in inherited class.

instead of

_inherit = 'hr.employee'  #wrong model used.

It must be:

_inherit = 'project.issue'  #This is correct model

As you have inherited the view of project.issue model.

This would be your code:

class project_issue(models.Model):
_inherit = "project.issue"
    job_id = fields.Many2one('hr.job', 'Job title')


Hope this would helps you.

Hi Oskar,

You are making wrong inheritence.

You should take inherit class name project.issue instead of hr.employee.

class hr_employee(models.Model):

_inherit = "hr.employee"

job_id = fields.Many2one('hr.job', 'Job title')

It will work

Much simpler than I expected too.
