Odoo Help


Is it possible to trigger Actions/Methods via Web services?

Similar to exec_workflow, is there there a call that would execute actions or/and methods? For example, actions and methods tied to buttons. More specifically Converting to Opportunity, Mark Won, Mark Lost, etc.

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

Yes, you could trigger actions and methods using XMLRPC (Webservices), just be sure to pass the corresponding parameters to the method or action method. For example:

#Using direct XMLRPC using xmlrpclib

    oerp_common = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('{}/xmlrpc/2/common'.format(url))
    for d in dbs:
        password = dbs[d].get('admin_pass','admin')
        uid = oerp_common.authenticate(db, 'admin', password, {})
        oerp_models = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('{}/xmlrpc/2/object'.format(url))
        action = oerp_models.execute_kw(db, uid, password,'ir.module.module', 'update_list',[])


#this is using Zato ESB for Odoo:

with self.outgoing.odoo.get('solt-open').conn.client() as zoe:

voucher_pool = zoe.get_model('account.voucher')

voucher_pool.button_proforma_voucher([voucher_id], context=ctx)result = voucher_pool.onchange_journal([],journal_id[0], [], False, partner_info ['id'], False, float(vals.get('monto_pago')), 'receipt', invoice_info['company_id'][0], context={'invoice_id': invoice_info['id']})
