I'm writing a parser for an Aeroo report for expenses.
In the py code I need to make some reference to specific product categories, created within the same module via XML serialization, eg.:
<record id="park" model="product.category"> <field name="parent_id" ref="hr_expense.cat_expense"/> <field name="name">Parking tickets</field> </record>
How can I reference in the py code the category having the id "park"?
All the xml records are stored in "ir.model.data" object. There is a method called "get_object_reference" which gives you the database ID from xml ID.
In this method you have to pass module name where xml record is created and xml ID of the record.
self.pool.get('ir.model.data').get_object_reference(cr, uid, 'module_name', 'xml_id_of_record')
record_id = self.env.ref('module_name.xml_id_of_record').id
