Hi Everyone,

Here is the solution for this.

You can use with_context  to achive this.

For Eg:

I have browse records for Y object and Now i am calling the write method of relation field of Y object which is X.

In simple term I have SO object and Partner object.

I have order (sale.order) browe record now I want to update the value of partner so I can directly update the value of partner using order

syntaxt :order.partner.with_context(key=value).write({'field':latest updated value.})

EG: sale_order.partner_id.with_context('abc':True).write({'email':'anil.r.kesariya@gmail.com'})

Now, write method of partner will be called and use can access the value from context in overriden write method of partner. which is passed using with_context.

you can get the context value in overriden write method like this


def write(self, vals)


res = super(res_partner, self).write(vals)



return res
