OpenERP - How to get sequence number when creating new Sales Order via XMLRPC

on 3/21/13, 5:35 PM 2,998 views

Hi, I'm making an Android app for OpenERP and I'm trying to create new Sales Order. One of the required fields however is Order Reference, which is normaly generated from the sequence.

Is there some way to get this sequence via xmlrpc?

Or do I have to make my own sequence in the app? ...but then how can I make sure that it would not colide with order references generated via web client?

Thank you.

Hi there :)

It's really easy. You let 'name' field empty and OpenERP triggers an action and completes it for you.

Python example:

 order = {
   'shop_id': 1,
   'state': 'draft',
   'date_order': '2013-09-01',
   'user_id': 4,
   'partner_id': 7,
   'partner_invoice_id': 1,
   'partner_order_id': 1,
   'partner_shipping_id': 1,
   'picking_policy': 'direct',
   'order_policy': 'manual',
   'pricelist_id': 1,
   'note': 'note',

order_id = sock.execute(dbname, uid, pwd, 'sale.order', 'create', order)

Result: Order reference S0059
