How to get data in Odoo from outside and give a response?

I am trying to get some data in Odoo from outside, work with that data, and give a response.

So I did a controller:

import openerp.http as http
import logging
_logger = logging.getLogger(__name__)

class Controller(http.Controller):
     @http.route('/test/result', type='http', auth='none', website=False)
     def index(self, **args):
          return '{"response": "OK"}'

With this code, if I go to http://localhost:8069/test/result, I get {"response": "OK"}, which is what I want.

The problem is that the request is not going to be typing the controller URL on a browser, but from the code of a website.

So I am trying to connect to the controller from the Python console:

>>> import requests
>>> requests.get('http://localhost:8069/test/result', data='{"x": "test",}')

What I always get is:

>>> <Response [404]>

Instead of '{"response": "OK"}'.

Please, help!

You are getting the 404 error because odoo does'nt know which database to use if you use your browser in private mode you'll also get the 404 error same as in your python code. to solve this you need to use just one database. If you are in a developement environnement you can use --db-filter option


Thank you @Motez. That is the problem.
