Add an attachment to message_post

on 6/3/15, 10:20 AM 1,351 views

Hi everyone,

I would like to add a notification every time that someone use the "Print Quotation" button.

With the notification I would like to have a message like "Quotation Print" and the Quotation on attachment.

I was thinking that I can use something like this (in print_quotation in sale.py)

 body = "Print of a new quotation"
records = self._get_followers(cr, uid, ids, None, None, context=context)
followers = records[ids[0]]['message_follower_ids']
self.message_post(cr, uid, ids, body=body, subtype='mt_comment', partner_ids=followers, context=context)

However, is it possible to add the Quotation printed on attachment?

Thank a lot you for your help.

You could pass the argument attachments=[('filename', 'file raw data not encoded with base64')] to message_post

Excellent! With this logic how can one attach, say, a report?

Hi, Send me the link of the forum post that you are referring to, because seems to be old and Odoo doesn't send me that
