New record created but not saved in table

on 12/30/13, 4:59 PM 2,065 views

Hello, I am trying to create a new record to the mail.message table with a new module that I installed. When I run the method, I get a new record id when i use the create() orm method, but the actual record isnt being saved to the table. Does anyone know why the create() is returning an id, but not saving the record to the table? Here is the code that I am using below. Thank you for your help

    mail_msg = self.pool.get('mail.message')

    # msg_ids is the id of the message 
    msg_ids = context.get('msg_id')

    # gets the message data with the id of the selected message
    message = mail_msg.browse(cr, uid, msg_ids, context)

    # finds the related partner ids and returns as a list of objects
    related_ids = mail_msg.browse(cr,uid,msg_ids,context=None)

    # will store only the ids of the partners from the related_ids list
    related_id_list = []
    for _id in related_ids.partner_ids:

    values = {
        'body': message.body,
        'date': message.date,
        'subject': message.subject,
        'parent_id': message.parent_id.id,
        'res_id': related_id_list[0],   # Update this field with another partner id
        'author_id': message.author_id.id,

    new_msg_created = mail_msg.create(cr, uid, values, context = None)

    # show new record id and pray it was saved to the table
    raise osv.except_osv('id number',new_msg_created)

Have you tried the same code but without raising the exception? I believe it causes a rollback to happen, which would explain the missing record.

Ha ha ha! wow. Thank you Timo very much. The raised exception that I was using kept the record from being inserted into the table.

The exception you raise is causing the problem. If you need to check whether the create function was called successfully, you should check the new_msg_created variable like this:

if not new_msg_created: # the message was not created

Now, if you need to log the successful creation (or failure to create) of the record, you can do that with the logging module:


You can check the result of the logging module in the openerp-server.log file
