Currency rates are updated once a day using a yahoo.com online web-service.

Hi. How does the currency rates auto update work?
which port do i have to open?
or does it work only on the SaaS online version?

I installed Odoo9 in Debian using nightly.

It is an Enterprise/SAAS module, not available in the Community version.

The name of the module is currency_rate_live.

It works via HTTP and HTTPS requests to Yahoo and the European Central Bank:


https://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select * from yahoo.finance.xchange where pair in (%22USD,EUR,GPB,AUD,CAD,JPY%22)&format=json&env=store%3A%2F%2Fdatatables.org%2Falltableswithkeys
