How can I know the "parent" name to add my new menu in the place I want?

I am trying to add a menu in sales/configuration. I was trying and if I put parent="base.menu_base_partner" it places my menu in sales menu. I can understand the link between sales menu and base.menu_base_partner.

I would like to add a menu in invoicing and I couldn't get the parent name too.

I can't see any relation between the user interface menu items and the parent id.

Could anyone enlighten me? Thank you in advance.

At Accounting Menus can find all menus related to Accounting.

Ok, I think I can understand it now. I have to go module by module searching the menuitems. Invoicing menu = account.menu_finance. Thank you.
