Provide the Model class which allow to access dynamically to all methods proposed by a data model.

class odoorpc.models.Model

Base class for all data model proxies.


All model proxies (based on this class) are generated by an environment (see the odoorpc.ODOO.env property).

>>> import odoorpc
>>> odoo = odoorpc.ODOO('localhost', port=8069)
>>> odoo.login('db_name', 'admin', 'password')
>>> User = odoo.env['res.users']
>>> User

Use this data model proxy to call any method:

>>> User.name_get([1])  # Use any methods from the model class
[[1, 'Administrator']]

Get a recordset:

>>> user = User.browse(1)
>>> user.name

And call any method from it, it will be automatically applied on the current record:

>>> user.name_get()     # No IDs in parameter, the method is applied on the current recordset
[[1, 'Administrator']]


Excepted the browse method, method calls are purely dynamic. As long as you know the signature of the model method targeted, you will be able to use it (see the tutorial).


Provide a dynamic access to a RPC instance method (which applies on the current recordset).

>>> Partner = odoo.env['res.partner']
>>> Partner.write([1], {'name': 'YourCompany'}) # Class method
>>> partner = Partner.browse(1)
>>> partner.write({'name': 'YourCompany'})      # Instance method

If key is an integer or a slice, return the corresponding record selection as a recordset.


Return an iterator over self.

classmethod browse(ids)

Browse one or several records (if ids is a list of IDs).

>>> odoo.env['res.partner'].browse(1)
Recordset('res.partner', [1])
>>> [partner.name for partner in odoo.env['res.partner'].browse([1, 3])]
['YourCompany', 'Administrator']

A list of data types returned by such record fields are available here.

Returns:a Model instance (recordset)

ID of the record (or the first ID of a recordset).


IDs of the recorset.

with_context(*args, **kwargs)

Return an instance equivalent to self attached to an environment based on self.env with another context. The context is taken from self.env or from the positional argument if given, and modified by kwargs.

Thus, the following two examples are equivalent:

>>> Product = odoo.env['product.product']
>>> product = Product.browse(1)
>>> product.with_context(lang='fr_FR')
Recordset('product.product', [1])
>>> context = product.env.context
>>> product.with_context(context, lang='fr_FR')
Recordset('product.product', [1])

This method is very convenient to update translations:

>>> product_en = Product.browse(1)
>>> product_en.env.lang
>>> product_en.name = "My product"  # Update the english translation
>>> product_fr = product_en.with_context(lang='fr_FR')
>>> product_fr.env.lang
>>> product_fr.name = "Mon produit" # Update the french translation

Return an instance equivalent to self attached to env.
