[v8] how to change the product template, so a new product is marked as 'Stockable Product' by default
the question says is all basically when creating a new product by default it is marked as "consumable product'. In my case I almost always want to create a 'Stockable Product' though. Is there a way to set this up as the default option?
Through the GUI I don't believe so. I don't see a way anyway. You should be able to do it programatically.
The field you are looking for is the "type" field in the product.template model. It is originally defined in /addons/product/product.py. You can change it in that file, but it may not work since I think this column is inherited and changed somewhere else. Best practice is to create a custom module and inherit the model with this column:
'type': fields.selection([('product','Stockable Product'),('consu', 'Consumable'),('service','Service')], 'Product Type', required=True, default='product' help="Consumable are product where you don't manage stock, a service is a non-material product provided by a company or an individual.")
Also, you will find information on the default fields in the ORM API docs for 8.0:
