Hi I've just started with Odoo (sandbox no data) and I've successfully created 2 warehouses and I want to delete one of them.

When I tried to delete one I have the following error message :

The operation cannot be completed, probably due to the following:
- deletion: you may be trying to delete a record while other records still reference it- creation/update: a mandatory field is not correctly set
[object with reference: Procurement Rule - procurement.rule]

I see we can archieve it but i really want to delete it how can I do ?

Thanks Bejaoui for your reply,

Unfortunately I have no idea where the procurement rule records are set, I added no records except a new warehouse.

Do you have an idea where I can find default  procurement rules to delete in the app ?

Kind regards

Procurement rules are created by default with the warehouse.

I updated the answer to explain how to find them.

Hi Benoit R,

This Tell you that you try to delete this warehouse while some Procurement Rule records still reference it.

So, you should delete those records before deleting the warehouse.

To do that,

First you have to activate the advanced routing feature to access the procurement rule menu

        1-Activate the developer mode

        2- Go to the configuration menu for inventory on Configuration/Settings

        3- Check "Advanced routing of products using rules" and apply


Then go to Inventory/Configuration/Routes/Global Procurement Rules

Finally, delete the Procurement Rules related to the undesirable warehouse.

Same for other records like stock location, operations type, etc ..

Best regards.

I'm had problems with this as well, trying to setup Odoo 10,, but following the tips mentioned above doesn't solve it for me. I deleted ALL global procurement rules and operation types. I cannot delete the locations however (gives error: object with reference: Warehouse - stock.warehouse). And when I try to delete the warehouse I get: object with reference: Procurement Rule - procurement.rule

Again, my global procurement rules list is completely empty (also after unchecking the 'global' filter in the search field)

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for any help

Edit: solved this. there were archived global procurement rules I hadn't noticed. Sorry...

Thanks a lot Bejaoui, I'm convinced it's the correct answer for the on premise solution but unfortunatly I cannot see the Procurement Rules in the odoo saas version following the indicated path (Inventory/Configuration/Routes/Global Procurement Rules)

Do you have an idea to access to it with the saas version ?

Kind regards,


I forgot to mention that you have to activate the developer mode.

Otherwise, It's the same, for all version.
