Account chart reset

Adds a method to the company to remove its chart of accounts, including all related transactions, journals etc. By necessity, this process also removes the company's bank accounts as they are linked to the company's journals and the company's payment orders and payment modes if the payment module is installed.

As a result, you can then reconfigure the company chart of account with the same or a different chart template.


To prevent major disasters when this module is installed, no interface is provided. Please run through xmlrpc, for instance using erppeek:

import erppeek

host = 'localhost'
port = '8069'
admin_pw = 'admin'
dbname = 'openerp'

client = erppeek.Client('http://%s:%s' % (host, port))
client.login('admin', admin_pw, dbname)
client.execute('', 'reset_chart', 1)

Known issues / Roadmap

This should work with the standard accounting modules installed. All sorts of combinations with third party modules are imaginable that would require modifications or extensions of the current implementation.

Sequences are not reset during the process.

Bug Tracker

Bugs are tracked on GitHub Issues. In case of trouble, please check there if your issue has already been reported. If you spotted it first, help us smashing it by providing a detailed and welcomed feedback here.
