Hi Jasad,

As far as I know there is no such functionality in the framework at the moment. However, you can try with the following ActionManager extension which should be defined in the JS file within your module

Here for example: 'static/src/js/your_module_name.js'

openerp.your_module_name = function (instance) {
    instance.web.ActionManager = instance.web.ActionManager.extend({

        ir_actions_act_close_wizard_and_reload_view: function (action, options) {
            if (!this.dialog) {
            return $.when();

To use this action just return following when closing a wizard:

return { 'type' :  'ir.actions.act_close_wizard_and_reload_view' }

I hope this helps :-)

Cheers, Petar

Hi Sayed, This will reload the entire application. I dont want to do so. Just refreshing the main window.

I have gone from OpenERP 6.1 to Odoo11.
In OpenERP, nothing special was needed.
In Odoo11 I tried what he says Alexandro, but I do not get the expected performance.
Is there any way to get it in Odoo11?

Hi Isidre,

This action was eventually converted into it's own module (``web_ir_actions_act_view_reload``) over at OCA github repository: https://github.com/OCA/web

You can use it with Odoo versions 11.0 and 12.0.

Kind Reagards,

Not working on odoo v9:

Action manager can't handle action of type ir.actions.act_close_wizard_and_refresh_view

  1. {flags: {…}, type: "ir.actions.act_close_wizard_and_refresh_view", context: {…}, menu_id: null}
    1. context:
      1. active_id:3
      2. active_ids:Array(1)
        1. 0:3
        2. length:1
        3. __proto__:Array(0)
      3. active_model:"sale.manage.variant"
      4. lang:"es_AR"
      5. params:{action318id9view_type"form"model"sale.order"_push_mefalse}
      6. search_disable_custom_filters:true
      7. tz:"Europe/Brussels"
      8. uid:1
      9. __proto__:Object
    2. flags:
      1. __proto__:Object
    3. menu_id:null
    4. type:"ir.actions.act_close_wizard_and_refresh_view"
    5. __proto__:

      11. __lookupSetter__:ƒ __lookupSetter__()
      12. get __proto__:ƒ __proto__()
      13. set __proto__:ƒ __proto__()

Any idea why the action is not called?

Continuing the work mentioned previously, the following works on Odoo 9:

odoo.define('my_module.action_manager', function(require) { 
  var action_manager = require('web.ActionManager');
  var MyModuleActionManager = action_manager.include({
    ir_actions_act_close_wizard_and_reload_view: function (action, options) {
      if (!this.dialog) {
      return $.when();
  return MyModuleActionManager; });
