Failed to render template Odoo 9 Error

Hello guys, I created a email template for hr.holidays module but when I try to send the email I get the following error:

Failed to render template <Template memory:7f29b07bc750> using values {'format_tz': <function <lambda> at 0x7f29bf509938>, 'ctx': {}, 'user': res.users(6,), 'object': None}

This is my code:

                mail_ids = []

                mail_pool = self.pool['mail.mail']

                data_pool = self.pool['ir.model.data']

                local_context = context.copy()

                template_xmlid = 'holidays_email_template_a_manager_aprobar'

                template_pool = self.pool.get('mail.template')

                dummy, template_id = data_pool.get_object_reference(cr, uid, 'hr_holidays', template_xmlid)

                for attendee in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):

                    manager = attendee.department_id.manager_id.user_id.email

                    mail_id = template_pool.send_mail(cr, uid, template_id, manager, context=local_context)


                mail_pool.send(cr, uid, mail_ids, context=context)

Anyone could help me with this error? Thanks!

Have you defined this template at your custom module..? If yes then you need to get the template id using your custom module reference not hr_holidays.

line : dummy, template_id = data_pool.get_object_reference(cr, uid, 'hr_holidays', template_xmlid)

So instead of hr_holidays you need to pass your custom module name.

I added this template to hr.holidays, so isn't a custom module
