or evaluation for context in actions

model is ir.actions.act_window

I want to have context evaluate as OR not AND for following

<field name="context">{'search_default_writer': active_id }</field> <field name="context">{'search_default_director':active_id }</field> <field name="context">{'search_default_producer':active_id }</field>

Obviously these need to be in a single context statement, but what is correct format.

Just separate with , <field name="context">{'search_default_writer': active_id, 'search_default_director': active_id, 'search_default_producer': active_id }</field>

I tried that initially - creates an AND logic statement (ie values = A and values = B and values = C) not an OR statement. I tried putting the '|' at the front but it didn't like that

I think that you are making some mistakes here.

The context sent on the ir.actions is going to be a value in the context dictionary. It's not conditional, it's only going to send all the context. Domains are conditional, but context are only variables that you are sending to the window.
