Bug Description

I have made an order and did the whole process of delivering the articles and making an invoice.

Now I go to the invoice which has been paid. On top of the screen is a button "Refund Invoice".

When I click on it, a small screen appears to get some information from the user. As reason I type "Manco" (without quotes) and click on "Create Refund".

This generates the following error:

Patrick van den Eijk (pvandeneijk) wrote :

Issue caused by the usage of an additional module (sale_commission), which redefined the method account_invoice._refund_cleanup_lines, but without the usage of context. In the redefined method super is called, without context as well.

After changing the definition and adding the possible passed context to super, the refund is working.

So this bug can be closed.

So, would you please check it with latest code and also provide more information about your issue . So, due to that I can reproduce it.

I hope you understand. :)

Thanks & waiting for your answer.

Patrick, you did right investigation.

module sale_commission is not a part of official module list of stable 7.0 where it's a communitary
module so one can't face this problem on stable release.
