Interface WORKFLOW Open ERP 7 to XML

on 5/15/13, 8:56 AM 1,064 views


Into the open erp v6 there was a modul who makes possible to extract workflow from the designer and have the xml structure....It was powerfull and very helpfull.

However this module was deleted on v7 (read into the v7 documentation) ... Is there an other way to make the same thing?

My suggestion is to draw out the workflow the way you want it on paper and then write the XML by hand. It's not nearly as daunting as it sounds, so long as you have a plan in advance. It's also fairly easy to integrate it into an already existing workflow, just don't forget to add the original module name and a period when referencing external ID fields from other modules.

The end result is generally cleaner, you'll have a better understanding of OpenERP as a whole, and most importantly it'll probably take less time overall than trying to get a workflow export system to work in 7.0.

First thanks your answer.

I draw out the workflow on paper...but it's a shame to see a so powerfull tools and can't do anithing with that without the export option...
