Model addon_name.model_name is declared but cannot be loaded! Best practice?

on 7/1/17, 9:10 AM 1,331 views

During development I have on occasion decided to remove a model from an addon for a variety of reasons. When I restart my server and update my addon I see a warning.

Model addon_name.model_name is declared but cannot be loaded!

The above is a shortened version of the warning but those of you who have seen this know what I am referring to.

The cause as far as I know is a reference to the removed model in the ir_model table which can be easily removed by executing the following sql command.

delete from ir_model where name='addon_name.model_name';

What is the preferred way to deprecate a model? Should some variation of the above sql be included in a migration script?
