How do you define default Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable values when creating a partner? These fields are required during partner creation. Is there a way to populate these fields automatically? When I create partners through the API, I would like their Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable fields to be set by default. (Openerp 7.0)

This answer does not appear to work for ODOO 9.

What do you mean "does not appear to work"? What part of the instructions? When configured properly via the installation of a Chart of Accounts, these fields are given default values. Also, the workflow explained in the link that Andreas has given is how you manually create defaults

I think I discovered the problem. I was going through USER-DEFINED DEFAULTS in the configuration section in developer mode. I did not realize that you can set the defaults from the individual view. I will try that.
