I have a problem because when I create a field in sale.order.line model. This field does not appear in the database Postgresql when I make a query in sale_order_line.

This is the statement I created field in the model sale.order.line :

niu = fields.Char(string="NIU", compute="_niu_validation", default=" ", readonly=True)

Please if anyone could help me , I'll be very grateful. Thank you for your time and dedication.
