Error Upgrading After Adding New Field to res.users and res.company

Updated: Feb 26

If you come to this blog looking to solve the error when upgrading your custom module, you've came to the right place.

res.users and res.company are loaded whenever you accessing the Odoo, and Odoo system detecting new field in the model prior to your upgrade (creating in the database table) will throw the error instantly.


This Odoo technical development blog is my way to contribute back to the Odoo Community, for all the selfless and great sharing by the community members.


1) Error upgrading custom module when adding new field to res.company

Solution: commented out the new field in the model and go to the App module. Then, uncommented out the new field and restart the Odoo. Since you are in the App module, just upgrade it.

Note: If you have multiple Odoo databases in the same instance, which happened to use the same module, will have the same issue to other databases.


2) Error upgrading custom module when adding new field to res.users

Solution: upgrading your custom module instantly when starting the Odoo.

odoo-bin -c odoo.conf -d database_name -u module_name


In the pycharm.
