I find the attribute oldname in field definition.  Is there any use of oldname attribute?

'product_tmpl_id' : fields.many2one('product.template', 'Product Template', required=True, ondelete='cascade', select=True, oldname='product_id'),

Thanks in advance.

HI Shamji,

'oldname' is the attribute used at time of migration.

oldname (string) -- the previous name of this field, so that ORM can rename it automatically at migration

Hope this helps...

Thanks for help
