Re: 8.00 - Bug on address customer in relation with invoice in Odoo

- 10/31/2014 14:13:05
I ferdinand, I am agree with you. It was my next question, if I don't generate my pdf invoice, what is the result if the address is change !! it has the new address.

I think this problem must be a priority because it's very important.
The inspector can tell me : 
Hey Loic, you realise false invoice, it's money laundering :) 

Seriuoly, this rpobelm has also a big impact also on the customers.

I just want to add, that this method is not revision proof.
any user with access to invoices can delete and recreate the pds  - with the new master data - hence it will not be the "original" any more.

IMO Odoo needs a mechanism to "protect" attachments
  • from unauthorized deletion
    Example: see above
  • unauthorized access
    Example HR - not everyone who can "read" hr employee data must be allowed to access personal data of employees stored as attachment.

Helo Loïc,

What you describe was a hot topic back in 2007/2008... And this isn't just with the addresses but any data linked in invoices that are not in the account_invoice table.

At that time it was chosen that a "temporal" data model could be implemented to fix this but that it would have been complex.

A workaround that has been agreed as acceptable at that time is the current system we have where invoice pdf's are stored as attachments and never changed once they have been generated once in a validated state. This doesn't help with queries in the database but ensures that your printed versions of invoices will not changed when data change.

Hope this help.

Currently I write a webservice between my ecommerce platform and Odoo

When I change a payment address during the payment process (new payment address) on my ecommerce platform, the payment address is write in hard inside database and the old address is not updated.

But in Odoo, this not the same thing, if during the process payment, the customer change this payment address, all the invoice (new and old) has the new address.

I think there is a big bug in odoo because the address has an impact on invoice.

I tried to change just in Odoo, a customer address, all the invoice has impacted, new and old invoice include the validate invoice.

This is a problem, in my opinion, with the law. All invoicemust be had an invoice, and the invoice validated should not be exchange

is the samething if I change a taxe rate. In this case, it can become horrible.

What the solution to resolve this problem, because it's important.
