Hello guys,

When I try to install a module, I get this error: No such external ID currently defined in the system: base.res_config_installer

Do you guys have any idea what the reason behind this is? Thanks a lot in advance!

Here's a log of what's going on:

It is because there is no res_config_installer XML ID.  Check the module that you are installing whether there is a call to search for base.res_config_installer.  I think it should be base.model_res_config_installer instead.

John Doe solved this problem. Here's the solution:

 

What follows will get you pass the error message that you mentioned but it does not mean that your database is "clean". From the fact that you are missing base.res_config_installer view which is provided by base (server), I would suggest that someone more knowledgable take a look into your database and assess the damage. Activate developer's mode to ease the process. Go to Settings >> Technical >> User Interface >> Views. Search for a view that is named "Inheritable view for installer objects" for res.config.installer model. Note that Database ID. Go to Settings >> Technical >> Sequence and Identifiers >> External Identifiers. Create a new record with the following entries: Module: base, External Identifiers: res_config_installer, Model Name: ir.ui.view, Record ID: the database ID that you have noted above. Save it. You can now try the installation again.

OK, I found the base.res_config_installer. It is refering to a view that is defined in the server's addons. It is very rare case that this may disappear. Could you check from Settings >> Technical >> Sequences & Identifiers >> External Identifiers whether there is a record refering to res_config_installer? It does not, it is best that you upgrade from base module as it means something is wrong with the overall configuration. But be careful because upgrading from base WILL change a lot of things, so if your database is a production database, I would sugest that you contact someone more knowledgeable to take a more careful look into the database and try to fix it. That person would need to have access to your database.

I checked and found out that the only res_config_installer entry that I have is as follows: Complete ID: base.model_res_config_installer Module: base External identifier: model_res_config_installer Record name:model_res_config_installer Model name: ir.model Is this what we are looking for?

No, that means you're missing at least 1 record that has res_config_installer in the name. Try upgrading from base to resolve that issue as I have mentioned before ONLY if it is not a production database.

I created a new database on my server and found out that it has an additional field called res.config.installer , you are right. I tried upgrading the base module on a backup database and it messed up everything, so it does not look like a solution to me. I am keeping the prod database as is, but now unable to install anything new. Do you have any other suggestions? Is it possible to manually create this entry?
