How to get post data in original order?

I'm writing a controller function that accepts post requests. I need to get the data from the post in the order it was sent to me. It seems like this is possible in werkzeug, by changing the class that the request object uses to store post data, but I can't get it to work in Odoo. I've tried something along these lines:

request.httprequest.parameter_storage_class = werkzeug.datastructures.ImmutableOrderedMultiDict

_logger.warn('form data: %s' % request.httprequest.form)

This outputs the post data, but it's still in the form of an ImmutableMultiDict, not the ordered one.

It seems like the stream is empty. The werkzeug documentation suggests that this can be because the form data has already been parsed (which I suppose it has in Odoo).

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

You could access to the POST data from the request stream like:

post_data = simplejson.load(request.httprequest.stream)

In this case I parsed into a dict using simplejson, you could read the stream using what best fit your needs since it's a file-like object. Read more at:


I done that in OpenERP v7, but that not change a lot, try to do a request.httprequest.stream.seek(0) if it's already parsed, you should be able to parsed again, it's a file -like object. Otherwise debug at that line to inspect request.httprequest to see where it holds the post data according to werkzeug docs
