Questions about the
category option in
What is the list of valid category names?
Why should I put a specific category in my module?
Can I put multiple categories?
The module category list is loaded from the file
You can also see it querying the
ir_module_category Postgres table. This is what I found:
seq name === ================================ 1 Customer Relationship Management 2 Sales Management 3 Project Management 4 Knowledge Management 5 Warehouse Management 6 Manufacturing 7 Invoicing & Payments 8 Accounting & Finance 9 Purchase Management 10 Human Resources 11 Extra Tools 12 Marketing 13 Point of Sale 14 Advanced Reporting
And since the
category_id is a
many2one field, no, you can't have more than one category for a module. Choose the most representative one (under which top menu will most of the menu options be?).
Just for curiosity, here is the number of official module per category in addons.
5 15 Accounting & Finance 1 Association 2 Authentication 7 Customer Relationship Management 2 Generic Modules/Accounting 17 Hidden 14 Hidden/Dependency 11 Human Resources 4 Knowledge Management 4 Localization 39 Localization/Account Charts 1 Localization/Payroll 1 Managing vehicles and contracts 6 Manufacturing 4 Marketing 1 Point Of Sale 1 Portal 9 Project Management 5 Purchase Management 2 Reporting 13 Sales Management 1 Social Network 2 Specific Industry Applications 34 Tools 1 Uncategorized 4 Warehouse Management
We can see some other category not listed in
Here is the little command I did to get that information
grep -rni category */__openerp__.py | cut -d":" -f4 | cut -d"," -f1 | tr -d "[',\"]" | sort | uniq -c
