Hi, hope you help.


def print_qr_report_medio_oficio(self):

report_obj = self.env['report'] # Instanciando el modelo

report = report_obj._get_report_from_name('ew_qr_sale.ew_reporte_factura_qr_hoja_medio_oficio') # Obteniendo el modelo

nombre_factura = 'name_report - nr'

report.name = nombre_factura # Cambiando el nombre a la factura

return {

'type': 'ir.actions.report.xml',

'report_name': 'ew_qr_sale.ew_reporte_factura_qr_hoja_medio_oficio',

'report_type': u'qweb-pdf',

Go to page "Settings/Technical/Actions/Reports"

here you can open corresponding record you want to change file name for and edit a "Save as Attachment Prefix" field (when you hover this fields name with mouse pointer, it'll display a tooltip help message). by changing this field, you'll change filename of the attachment saved. you can use python expressions here, as for example in Invoices pdf.

hope it'll help.
