API generated Invoice

on 6/29/16, 10:02 AM 768 views


We are considering switching away from our current accounting and invoicing system (KashFlow & WHMCS) and solely use Odoo.   What I would like to ask is whether its possible to create a client invoice through an API ? We generate billing information from our telephony system, using Pentaho Kettle ETL, and wondering if we could get it to automatically create invoices in Odoo.

Would this be possible ? Do any of you have any experience of Kettle integration with Odoo ?

Thank you

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

You could do it using the Odoo XMLRPC API or through an another software that provide you another kind of API like REST and talk to Odoo using XMLRPC. Zato is a well suited ESB for this tasks
