How to create sales order BO in addon module

on 11/17/13, 8:27 AM 784 views

Hi all,

i am currently playing around wit openERP addon modules. I would like to develop a proper asychnronous amazon connector for openerp. Retrieving the data from amazon is straight forward through the API, however conceptually i am struggling with the creation of a sales order in openERP. I couldn't find any example on how to create & fill a sales order business object nor any documentation on this object, regarding which field are mandatory etc. Can anyone help me? I guess i just need some kickstart here. E.g. it is not quite clear to me if I have some addon, extending the BO sales order, I basically changed the data model, if I add another addon which deals with sales order, how can I actually retreive the current sales order structure including all addon modifications?

Furtherhmore, I do believe that the sales order should be received by a module first do verify and validate data instead of using some RPC to create the sales order directly. However this is some gut feeling and experience with SAP ByD, any oppinions on that?

Thanks for any help or idea.
