Hi everyone, I'm trying to migrate my database from 7.0 to 8.0 but I have an error with module stock, I reviewed the tables and it seems that the data has been migrated well but always got the following error:

Error context:
View `stock.picking.form`

There is no button named "draft_force_assign", it is only as "force_assign", so your xpath expression would be like as follows :

<xpath expr="/form/header/button[@name='force_assign'] position="<<as per your need>>">

    <<element as per your need>


Hope this helps !!!.
