Re: null value in column "notify_email" violates not-null constraint

I am wondering if my solution is correct?

What if there is another module that i do not know about,
that is installed and - like the mail module - extends res.partner with a non-null field ?

How do i add 'depends' for a module that i don't know about?

I was thinking perhaps i should add 'depends' for res_partner,
but then i get this error


You try to upgrade a module that depends on the module: res_partner.
But this module is not available in your system.

Any insights on this matter of dependencies is truly appreciated.

Thx, Ron

Jose thank you very much.
Your tip made me think of 'mail' as the module responsible for initial values.

So i added a line to saying: cwa_supplier depends on mail module.
Now all is working fine.

Best regards, Ron

Hello Ronald.

This field is a selection field, it is meant that you need to put the database value of the selection field in this case for the string 'Never' is 'none'[1]. You have an example in the demo data of the mail module[2].


<field name="notify_email">none</field>
Best Regards.
