Account Analytic Distribution Required

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/account-analytic Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module extends account_analytic_required and adds 2 policies to control the use of analytic distributions. The policies behave as follow

  • never: no analytic account nor analytic distribution allowed
  • always: analytic account required
  • always_plan: analytic_distribution required
  • always_plan_or_account: analytic distribution or analytic account required
  • optional: do what you like,

In any case analytic account and analytic distribution are mutually exclusive.
