Miss leading warning messages

We had faced a missleading warning message when we used website_sale in couple with portal.

To reproduce the environment.

  • install website_sale and portal
  • create a new user
  • set it as a sale manager
  • add it in the portal group
  • go to sale menu and create a new article
  • set a name (only required field) and save it.

You should have a double error message with a validateError and an AccessError


This message let us think we had issue with UoM validation and/or read access to product.template.

After hours, we just discovered the issue came from an access rule set in portal group [('website_published', '=', True), ("sale_ok", "=", True)]

If the same process is done but you hit the published button (in sale page), the product.template is created properly.

We were largely misguided by the warning message and I wanted to share the knowledge to save hours to other developers.

Do you know any other cases the warning message misslead you?

Good find. I have not yet come accross an error message that misleaded me.

Perhaps this can be filed on github as a bug? (github.com/odoo)
