Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I have a custom module that does some stuff including generating some reports in PDF. I've created a cron job to run this periodically. If I select "Run Manually", everything works as expected and my reports look great. If however the job executes via schedule, the PDF loses it's header, footer and styling.
I've done a lot of searching, but other people that are having problems are having problems regardless of how the report is executed. My problem is only when the report is executed via a cron job.
Is there something I'm missing on permissions perhaps? What could be different between the execution methods, manually through the UI versus scheduled?
I'm on Odoo 9 and wkhtmltopdf 12.3.2 (with patched qt) on Windows 8.1 as my dev machine. The problem also occurs on Ubuntu 14.04, Odoo 9, wkhtmltopdf 12.2.1 (with patched qt).
