You need to inherit 'ir.needaction_mixin' to your model
I took the example with Mail message model (https://github.com/odoo/odoo/blob/8.0/addons/mail/mail_message.py#L63)

class mail_message(osv.Model):
    _name = 'mail.message'
    _description = 'Message'
    _inherit = ['ir.needaction_mixin']
    def _needaction_domain_get(self, cr, uid, context=None):
        return [('to_read', '=', True)]

So, the same can be applied to your model and set the condition using DOMAIN

Hi , i want to count the list of rows in a remibnder and display the number of this list , what can i change in this function to display the number in the menuitem:

class Reminders(http.Controller):

_inherit = ['ir.needaction_mixin']

@http.route('/general_reminders/all_reminder', type='json', auth="public")

def all_reminder(self):

reminder = []


for i in request.env['popup.reminder'].search([]):



return reminder
