on 8/5/14, 9:29 AM 2,156 views


I got a test account with odoo, we installed a module for odooERP WEB API and we trying to establish a connection from an outside server where our store its located.

I have a few questions and it would be great if you can help me:

- how to access API from outside server?
- where are the endpoints?
- and where is a documentantion ?
- where i can get the API key, database, password, hostname? if any of those are needed
- is there any php example to connect into API enpoints e.g.: get products data or stock?

Thanks a lot for your help

I wrote a simple php client to interact with the Odoo xmlrpc api. Maybe it suits your needs.


I have not written any documentation, but the source code is documented.
