Configuration Parameters

Asked by Gerhard du Toit

New configuration parameters records (default values) are created for both accounts receivable and accounts payable every time I create a new customer (partner).

Shouldn't there be only one default per object? Partner in this case.

This becomes quite cumbersome when changes needs to be made to Accounts.

I think you should create one generic value for those properties in Administration -> Configuration -> Parameters ->Configuration parameters. In that view click Generic-filter and you'll see all properties which are used as defaults (per company if you are using multi company).

You can make default value by defining all other fields but leave resource fields blank. If you have defined your generic properties right the correct values should be in new partner by default. If you change your default value it changes in all partners using that default value.

I understand your answer.

Why is there an entry in Configuration parameters for every product or partner I create?

Hi Gerhard,

I just noticed the same situation in my database. This might be even a bug. In my opinion new property lines should not be generate if there is already a generic parameter for the field.

I'll try reproduce the situation with clean database. If new property line to each object is still created I thing we should create a bug report.

ya, every time you create a product category it creates an entry in parameter.

Anyway, thanks for the highlight Eetu. however, when I remove the value of Expense Account from parameter, on create of new category the expense account is blank.
