How to trigger an action on several records when importing ?

on 8/21/15, 8:24 AM 889 views

On Odoo 8, I imported a lot of data through the import module (via csv files) but I can't find a way to execute actions from buttons like "Validate" on a record.

For example, I imported some customer invoices. Their state is "draft" after the import. What I want is to generate payments on all those invoices, without having to click manually on the Validate (or others) buttons.

I usually use xml-rpc script to achieve such task, you can call the workflow for list of some records ...

I hope it'll help

Well I actually did modify the workflow temporarly directly on the GUI, but using a XML-RPC script could be more reusable indeed.

Thanks for your answer
