Tax not calculated when creating invoice via werbservice API in Odoo 9

on 3/7/16, 8:51 AM 908 views

I am using the following PHP code to create a new invoice via webservice API

$id = $models->execute_kw($db, $uid, $password,'res.partner', 'create',array($datos_cliente));
$invoice_id = $models->execute_kw($db,$uid,$password,'account.invoice','create', array(array( 'partner_id'=>$id, account_id'=>193 )));

$result = $models->execute_kw($db, $uid, $password,'account.invoice.line', 'create', array(array( 'account_id'=>477, 'invoice_id'=>$invoice_id, 'quantity'=>1, 'name'=>'Venta de prueba', 'invoice_line_tax_ids' => array(array(4, 23,false)), 'price_unit'=>200.00 )));

The invoice is created and the line shows correct tax code but tax amount is not calculated (Other info tab is blank), but if the line is edited (say  quatity or price is modified) tax is calculated correctly.

What I am doing wrong or missed at invoice creation

account.invoice has a method called compute_taxes which you can call with the id of the invoice you want to update the taxes on as parameter.

Since I'm working with Python/Odoo, and it's been a while since I last used PHP,  I can only guess:

$models->execute_kw($db, $uid, $password, 'account.invoice', 'compute_taxes', $id_of_invoice);
