Pdf watermark

This module was written to add watermarks (backgrounds) to PDF reports.

This is necessary because of the way wkhtmltopdf handles headers and footers, in the current versions if quite impossible to have a background for the complete page.


This module works out of the box, but is faster if you install the python library PyPDF2.


To use this module, you need to:

  1. go to your report
  2. select a PDF or image to use as watermark. Note that resolutions and size must match, otherwise you'll have funny results
  3. advanced users (members of group technical settings) can also fill in an expression that returns the data (base64 encoded) to be used as watermark
