Welcome to OdooRPC’s documentation!


OdooRPC is a Python package providing an easy way to pilot your Odoo servers through RPC.

Features supported:
  • access to all data model methods (even browse) with an API similar to the server-side API,

  • use named parameters with model methods,

  • user context automatically sent providing support for internationalization,

  • browse records,

  • execute workflows,

  • manage databases,

  • reports downloading,

  • JSON-RPC protocol (SSL supported),

Quick start

How does it work? See below:

import odoorpc

# Prepare the connection to the server
odoo = odoorpc.ODOO('localhost', port=8069)

# Check available databases

# Login
odoo.login('db_name', 'user', 'passwd')

# Current user
user = odoo.env.user
print(user.name)            # name of the user connected
print(user.company_id.name) # the name of its company

# Simple 'raw' query
user_data = odoo.execute('res.users', 'read', [user.id])

# Use all methods of a model
if 'sale.order' in odoo.env:
    Order = odoo.env['sale.order']
    order_ids = Order.search([])
    for order in Order.browse(order_ids):
        products = [line.product_id.name for line in order.order_line]

# Update data through a record
user.name = "Brian Jones"
