Hello i'm new with OpenERP. Developing an Android App right now for it.

I would like to find out what fields each model has. By that i mean for example to create a res.partner you must pass at least the "name" but there's also address, city etc etc etc.

Is there somewhere i can find a list with all the model fields?? Like to create a product, i get the name right but it creates it by default with a price of 1 since i don't really know exactly what the price's field name is.

Thank you

one way is, if you have openerp already installed on a pc, you can select export on the model you want and all the highlighted fields are the must haves and the others are other fields in the module or used in the module. Alternatively open the sql database and view the fields there. you can also open each folder in addons folder and simply open the different xmls in each module to see all the fields and where they are located. hope his helps

since i do have access to the web client i'm trying to export a product and i see the field "Name" is highlighted. Although i get an error when i try to create a product with "Name" while with "name" it's creating it just fine. Tried alternating from Product Type to product type also but still...no idea why it won't accept it

You can see all the fields of particular object at Settings->Technical->Database Structure->Models and search any object and then open a form view. In that view you will be able to see all the fields.

Just in case someone else needs this info, i wasn't able to see "technical->Database Structure" due to not having it enabled on the Access Rights on the user i was using.

Thank you
