Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I would like to create a report where the user should be able to set some settings in a wizard, then a web request (download) to another server is triggered with the chosen parameters and model data, which should return a PDF file.
I already have looked into server actions, Custom Reports, wizard creation and so on, but have not found a suitable way to do these things.
This will probably require a custom module, but I have no idea where to start and if the implementation as a "dummy" reporting engine, which takes the object data of eg. crm.lead and some other parameters specified in the wizard and returns a PDF, is sufficent or the right way to go. On that way I hope to keep the report creation transparent for Odoo (reportdata -> PDF). The PDF should be stored with the other email attachments so it can be attached to an email-template automatically.
