I have found some examples using model = 'res.partner' but I want to work with other models. I tried res.product but that didn't work. How can I get a list of usable models?

The ir.model model contains a list of every model, and the name field contains the name, such as 

  • res.partner - customers, suppliers, employees, etc
  • product.product - products
  • purchase.order - orders for things you purchase
  • sale.order - orders for things you sell

There are several hundred, all depending on which modules are installed, so the list is unique to every Odoo database.


What does **ir** stand for?
