Importing External IDs via Web Services/XMLRPC

on 2/10/16, 7:05 AM 672 views

When you import using the CSV import tool, you can specify an External ID, which as far as I understand creates a new field/record in ir_model_data. Can you do the same thing when creating records via web services/xmlrpc?

Also, how can you add these external ids to the form views?, so that they show up on the form?

in debug mode, you can see external id with 'View Meta'. in form_view you need to add a function field which one search his own External_id. You can always create manually your own external id with a create on ir_model_data in xml_rpc.
