Model Attributes

Model attributes are the features of a model that will be defined at the time of creating a new model or using the model that already existed. We can take a look to what are the model attributes in Odoo

_auto = false - Whether we create a new database table that is set to False, override init() to create the database table. Automatically defaults to True for models and Transient models, False for Abstract models.

_abstract = True - Whether the model is an abstract model.
