def send_expiry_email(self, cr, uid, ids=None, context=None):

print 'o'*200

  today = datetime.datetime.today()

today = datetime.datetime.strptime(datetime.datetime.strftime(today, DF), DF)

  print "DF -->> ", DF            #################DF -->> %Y-%m-%d  )after this line code is not excecuting.............

for partner in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):  #From Here Scheduler is not working

  passport_expiry_days = 0




if partner.passport_expiry:

passport_expiry = datetime.datetime.strptime(partner.passport_expiry, DF) - today


if int(passport_expiry.days) <= partner.expiry_day_limit:

passport_expiry_days = passport_expiry.days

  if partner.visa_expiry:

visa_expiry = datetime.datetime.strptime(partner.visa_expiry, DF) - today

  if int(visa_expiry.days) <= partner.expiry_day_limit:

visa_expiry_days = visa_expiry.days

  if partner.emirates_id_expiry:

emirates_id_expiry = datetime.datetime.strptime(partner.emirates_id_expiry, DF) - today

  if int(emirates_id_expiry.days) <= partner.expiry_day_limit:

emirates_id_expiry_days = emirates_id_expiry.days

if partner.insurance_id_expiry:

insuarance_id_expiry = datetime.datetime.strptime(partner.insurance_id_expiry, DF) - today

if int(insuarance_id_expiry.days) <= partner.expiry_day_limit:

insuarance_id_expiry_days = insuarance_id_expiry.days






  body = "Employee %s has Expired" %( partner.name)

footer="Please Update Your details"

if passport_expiry_days:

body = "%s passport on %s day," % (body,passport_expiry)

if visa_expiry_days:

body = "%s Visa %s on day," % (body,visa_expiry)

if emirates_id_expiry_days:

body = "%s Emirates %s on day," %( body,emirates_expiry)

if insuarance_id_expiry_days:

body = "%s Insurance %s on day," % (body,insurance_expiry)

mail_values= {

'body_html' :'<pre><span class="inner-pre" style="font-size: 15px">%s</br>%s</span></pre>' %(body,footer),

'record_name': 'dsdds',

'email_from': 'test@yahoo.in',

'email_to': partner_email,

'subject': 'Employee Expiry Details'


mail_id = self.pool.get('mail.mail').create(cr, uid, mail_values, context=context)

self.pool.get('mail.mail').send(cr, uid, [mail_id])

return True

.xml file


<record id="ir_cron_employee_expiry_info" model="ir.cron">

<field name="name">Employee Document Expiry scheduler</field>

<field eval="True" name="active"/>

<field name="interval_number">1</field>

<field name="interval_type">minutes</field>

<field name="numbercall">-1</field>

<field eval="False" name="doall"/>

<field eval="'hr.employee'" name="model"/>

<field eval="'send_expiry_email'" name="function"/>

<field eval="'()'" name="args"/>




When any method is calling from scheduler then you can not get any input inside "ids" argument. So, when ids=None then you have to set it before processing it as like below.

def send_expiry_email(self, cr, uid, ids=None, context=None):

print 'o'*200

today = datetime.datetime.today()

today = datetime.datetime.strptime(datetime.datetime.strftime(today, DF), DF)

print "DF -->> ", DF

if not ids:

    ids = self.search(cr, uid, []) #It will give you ids of all employee. But you can manage domain to get as you want.

for partner in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):



I think you get an issue inside your code. I hope it will help you.

Thanks Emiproo.......Works Perfectly..........I
