API calls from external Server

on 8/5/14, 9:29 AM 1,891 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.


Hi Zubin,

Please see the following is the link for the manage API calls from outside to Odoo. It will resolve your question for the documentation and PHP example.


Let me know if you want more details. I will provide you.
