how to add columns to account.invoice new API ?

on 1/10/15, 3:33 PM 1,884 views

I would like to add new column to the table account_invoice

I tried using:

from openerp import fields  as fieldss

    product_id= fieldss.related('order_line', 'product_id', type='many2one', relation='product.product', string='Product'),

the purpose:  add product in the view account invoice view search  <record id="view_account_invoice_filter" model="ir.ui.view">


There could be more than one product in the invoice line which product you want to store in the account.invoice. If you just want to search the product in accout.invoice then look in to sale.order model for reference, which includes product_id as a related field.

Try this

from openerp import models,fields,api

class account_invoice_ext(models.Model):
        _inherit = 'account.invoice'


Your xml file


        <record id="view_account_invoice_filter_inherit" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">account.invoice.inherit.select</field>
            <field name="model">account.invoice</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="account.view_account_invoice_filter"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <field name="period_id" position="after">
                    <field name="product_id"/>

Hope this helps !!.

I got : File "/opt/odoo/odoo/openerp/models.py", line 1276, in _validate_fields raise ValidationError('\n'.join(errors)) ParseError: "ValidateError Field(s) `arch` failed against a constraint: Invalid view definition Error details: Field `product_id` does not exist
