I am  trying to create a new customer via XML-RPC. I followed the tutorial here


I am able to create new res.Partner and fill all the contact information. I failed with setting the Tags (category_id). 

$resp = $models->execute_kw($db, $uid, $password, 'res.partner', 'write',

The question is how to set many2many relation using PHP and XML-RPC? I am aware of the API here https://www.odoo.com/documentation/8.0/reference/orm.html#openerp.models.Model.write but there is no description how to call it from PHP.

At least some hint would be enought

The JSON for category_id if $tagID == 100 should be:

 "category_id": [[4, [100], 0]]

So I believe that your PHP code should have an additional array() as shown below

$resp = $models->execute_kw($db, $uid, $password, 'res.partner', 'write',

TO Garry: As I wrote in my question I followed the integration API but there is no tutorial how to set many2many property.
