add attachments_ids to message_post Error!

on 5/18/16, 6:58 AM 871 views

Hello guys, 

I have a question about the Chatter: (mail.thread)

I have a Wizard that allows me to add an Attachment. When I click Send, the Attachment should be in the Chat with a body (please see attached file)  so that the followers can see it.

here's my code

piece= fields.Many2many('ir.attachment', string="Pièce", required=True)
def Envoi_Justif(self):
    subject = u" Pièce Justificative"
    body = u" please see attached file here "
    self.message_post(body, attachments_ids=[ self.piece_justif],  subject=subject.encode('utf-8'),  type="notification")


Field & Button

<field name="piece" widget="many2many_binary"/>

 when i click Send, it gives me this error : 

File "/opt/odoo/addons/mail/mail_thread.py", line 1595, in message_post
    thread_id = thread_id[0]
IndexError: list index out of range

any help would be appreciated

I just needed to add 'mail.compose.message' to _inherit and change attachments_ids  to attachment_ids

and finally tell odoo where i want to put the attachment ( in my case, i defined a field Many2one to my target)
