Duplication of a product with variants creates a new product without variants

When duplicating of a product with variants, Odoo creates a new product (copy), but without variants: they have all disappeared. This is probably a standard decision by the editor.

However, i'm sure other people have hade the need to duplicate a product and keep variants. Is there a module to allow this?


What version are you using? This totally changed between v7 and v8.

I should have been more clear from start: V8.0

In v8 it is not copied (which is the default behaviour if the developer does not specify it for one/many2many).  You could put copy=True in product_variant_ids and attribute_line_ids in the code.  I wonder if it would not copy too many things if we put in standard.

Anyone has suggestions or an input on this question?

What happens is you are dupplicating the product.template record and not the product.product associated. A solution might be to use https://www.odoo.com/apps/trunk/product_variant_multi/ if it fits your setup.
