def db_creation_cron(self, cr, uid, context=None):

if context is None: context = {}

user = 'admin'

pwd = 'admin'

super_user_pwd = openerp.tools.config['admin_passwd']

db_created = request.session.proxy("db").create_database(






return True

once secheduler is run my method call but once

db_created = request.session.proxy("db").create_database(super_user_pwd,'RJ_005',False,'en_US',pwd) called i get error
