Route route handler

Alpha License: LGPL-3 OCA/edi Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

Technical module that provides a base handler for adding and removing controller routes on the fly.

Can be used as a mixin or as a tool.


This is an alpha version, the data model and design can change at any time without warning. Only for development or testing purpose, do not use in production. More details on development status

Table of contents


As a mixin

Use standard Odoo inheritance:

class MyModel(models.Model):
    _name = "my.model"
    _inherit = "endpoint.route.handler"

Once you have this, each my.model record will generate a route. You can have a look at the endpoint module to see a real life example.

As a tool

Initialize non stored route handlers and generate routes from them. For instance:

route_handler = self.env["endpoint.route.handler"]
endpoint_handler = MyController()._my_handler
vals = {
    "name": "My custom route",
    "route": "/my/custom/route",
    "request_method": "GET",
    "auth_type": "public",
new_route =
new_route._refresh_endpoint_data()  # required only for NewId records
new_route._register_controller(endpoint_handler=endpoint_handler, key="my-custom-route")

Of course, what happens when the endpoint gets called depends on the logic defined on the controller method.

In both cases (mixin and tool) when a new route is generated or an existing one is updated, the ir.http.routing_map (which holds all Odoo controllers) will be updated.

You can see a real life example on model.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • add api docs helpers
  • allow multiple HTTP methods on the same endpoint
