Openlabs Magento module error: Invalid uom_id

on 11/1/13, 8:01 AM 2,032 views

During magento website configuration in magento connector module provided by OpenLabs, when we set the value of "Default Product UOM" field other than Unit(s), it is raising error like :

except_osv: ('ValidateError', u'Error occurred while validating the field(s) uom_id: Error: The default Unit of Measure and the purchase Unit of Measure must be in the same category.')

We also tried to solve the problem & we would like to share with everyone.

Below is our solution. Other solutions are highly appreciated.
