Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
there is a long outstanding related field (new API in Odoo 8.0) issue reported on github https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/4349,
we have exactly the same issue, Our business case for using related field is as following
there is product (master data) in which the product name and cost (standard price) defined,
we have our business object purchase application(transaction) refer to product, also 2 stored related fields: description(product.name) and price_unit(product.standard_price), in each purchase application, we would like to get the related product name and standard cost from product(master) as default value , but allow authorized users to change the description and standard price for specific purchase application, in this case, we do not want to update the product master!
anyone can explain why currently standard Odoo write back to the original model(master) when related field changed on target model(transaction)? if there is other use cases need this kind of functionality, is there any way to disable the inverse function on related field, I do think the business case mentioned above should be more common on using related field!
