supplier invoice line form fails to find field

I'm using odoo 9.0 community edition.

I modified the account.invoice.supplier.form view to give me an editable form when modifying/creating invoice lines rather than the standard inline editing. To do this I changed:

<tree string="Bill lines" editable="bottom">


<tree string="Bill lines">

I also did the same with account.invoice.form

The view that now pops up when I click an invoice line is account.invoice.line.form.

The problem I'm getting when I do this from account.invoice.supplier.form, is that when I click the many2one dropdown to select a Product I get the following error:

This does not happen from account.invoice.form.

How can I get around this error? Why does it happen?

As summary this happened because of the fields_view_get function. Because you didn't defined a local form view this lead to call the original form view of the invoice.line which calls the fields_view_get function which add new domain.

So to get around this error you need to make a local form view. You can simply copy & past the original form view of the invoice line from and paste it after the </tree> of the field.

So your field looks like:

<tree string="Bill lines">
<field name="sequence" widget="handle" />
<field name="product_id" context="{'partner_id': parent.partner_id}"/>
<field name="name"/>
<field name="company_id" invisible="1"/>
<field name="account_id" groups="account.group_account_user" domain="[('company_id', '=', parent.company_id), ('internal_type', '=', 'other')]"/>
<field name="account_analytic_id" groups="analytic.group_analytic_accounting" domain="[('company_id', '=', parent.company_id), ('account_type', '=', 'normal')]"/>
<field name="quantity"/>
<field name="uom_id" groups="product.group_uom"/>
<field name="price_unit"/>
<field name="discount" groups="sale.group_discount_per_so_line"/>
<field name="invoice_line_tax_ids" widget="many2many_tags" context="{'type':parent.type}"
domain="[('type_tax_use','=','purchase'),('company_id', '=', parent.company_id)]" options="{'no_create': True}"/>
<field name="price_subtotal"/>
<field name="currency_id" invisible="1"/>
<form string="Invoice Line">
<field name="product_id" context="{'partner_id': parent.partner_id}"/>
<label for="quantity"/>
<field name="quantity" class="oe_inline"/>
<field name="uom_id" class="oe_inline" groups="product.group_uom"/>
<field name="price_unit"/>
<field name="discount" groups="sale.group_discount_per_so_line"/>
<field name="currency_id" invisible="1"/>
<field domain="[('company_id', '=', parent.company_id)]" name="account_id" groups="account.group_account_user"/>
<field name="invoice_line_tax_ids" context="{'type':parent.get('type')}" domain="[('type_tax_use','!=','none'),('company_id', '=', parent.company_id)]" widget="many2many_tags" options="{'no_create': True}"/>
<field domain="[('company_id', '=', parent.company_id), ('account_type', '=', 'normal')]" name="account_analytic_id" groups="analytic.group_analytic_accounting"/>
<field name="company_id" groups="base.group_multi_company" readonly="1"/>
<label for="name"/>
<field name="name"/>


Hope this could help
