Table of contents



To authenticate you need to POST a request on [ODOO HOST]/session/auth/login with the following body:

    "db": [DB_NAME],
    "login": [LOGIN],
    "password": [PASSWORD]

"db" is not mandatory if Odoo is able to determine it unequivocally (e.g. single database server or dbfilter parameter). If the authentication is successful, the response will contain (in addition to the usual response of the JSON-RPC authentication):

    "session": {
        "sid": "ff6b4bac7a590e7960abfc0ac38361433ecac1d6",
        "expires_at": "2021-09-21 16:53:56"

This sid value can then be sent in subsequent requests in the following ways:

  • header X-Openerp-Session-Id
  • cookie named session_id
  • request param session_id


To logout you need to POST a request on [ODOO HOST]/session/auth/logout with an empty body.


First official version.
