Get other field than id in database (many2one field)

Hi everyone

I have definided many2one fields in my table, when I look at my table appear only ids of records:

These are my field definitions:

'brand': fields.many2one('cm.brand', 'Marca', ondelete='restrict'),

'model': fields.many2one('cm.model', 'Modelo', ondelete='restrict')

In my table, I have something like this:

brand integer      model integer

1                        2

2                        1

Instead of these integers(ids), I would like to have name value stored in the database, I tried adding a related field in my model:

'model_name': fields.related('model', 'name', readonly=True, type='char')

However, it doesn't make any change.

Any suggestions?

Dear Diego,

in this case you must add store="True" if you need to see this related field in the database.
