Schedule a method from a custom module

on 6/22/15, 5:37 AM 1,107 views

Hello, I need to schedule a method from my own module. I set as Object the name of my model (_name) and the name of my method in Method. I tried to schedule it every minute to check if it works, but even if the scheduled time changes, the method is not called. My class is a Transient model and the method works if I call it manually.

Here is a screen:


(I tried to set Arguments to '()' too)

And the piece of code from models.py that i want to schedule just for test (I put only the used method):

class prova(models.TransientModel):
_name = 'prove.prove'

def regola_restrizione(self, cr, uid, ids, context={}):

username = 'admin'
pwd = 'admin'
dbname = 'TestScheduler'

sock_common = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('http://localhost:8069/xmlrpc/common')
uid = sock_common.login(dbname, username, pwd)
sock = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy'http://localhost:8069/xmlrpc/object')

rule = {

'model_id': '79',
'domain_force': "['|',('user_id','=',user.id),('user_id','=',False)]",
'active': 'TRUE',
'name': 'PROVA',
'global': 'FALSE',
'perm_unlink': 'TRUE',
'perm_write': 'TRUE',
'perm_read': 'TRUE',
'perm_create': 'TRUE',
'groups': [(6, 0, [9])]

sock.execute(dbname, uid, pwd, 'ir.rule', 'create', rule)

return True

Is there a way to know if I set the fields correctly and Odoo could 'catch' my method?

Any help is appreciated.



You just need to make one change inside your method defination as like below.

def regola_restrizione(self, cr, uid, ids=[ ], context={}): # Cause while calling from cron job Odoo will not pass ids.

I hope your issue will resolve. 

Thank you very much, it works :)
