I am looking to add a button to a view of product.template that would open the same product.template but into the front office shop.

I don't see how to achieve it.

I took a look how the "website" button in the back office header is done and I don't see how to apply it to a header of a view for instance.

Then I though about to hack website_sale controller, but no great idea how to achieve it also.

Did anyone already success to create a bridge between back office and front office?


Help is welcome.

Hi Jordi,
Have a look at the website_quote module from Odoo.

When installed, this module allows the creation of a  button to help you view the quotation online - this button brings you directly from the Back office to the Front office.

Maybe you can analyse the behaviour of this link and replicate it to your needs.

Thanks Will,

I based my work on website_quote and worked fine.

return {
            'type': 'ir.actions.act_url',
            'target': 'self',
            'url': '/shop/product/%s' % slug(product_template)

The trick was to set the type to 'ir.action.act_url'
