Trigger a button press through the API

I am trying to mimic a button press on a form through the API (xmlrpc). For example I have created a stock move and need to replicate the action of pressing the button 'Process Entirely' i.e. stock.move.action_done() passing the id of the required stock move record.

The two approaches I I have thought could work are: -

  1. To create a workflow linked to the action_done action and then call the workflow through the API.

  2. Create an Inherited version the stock.move module and expose the action_done method so its executable through the API.

Could tell me what the best 'Odoo' way of achieving the above would be and point me towards examples of this being done?

Scratch that, was making a workflow call instead of an execute to the API. Works fine now.

If you feel so inclined, post your code in your answer so if someone else wants to do this, they can benefit from what you learned.
