A value may change over time. With this module you may set starting dates and values.

Table of contents


The user needs the access right "Manage Time Parameters".


Menu: "Settings/Technical/Time Parameters"

Create a parameter with different versions (start date and value).

If model_id is empty, any model/record may get the time parameter.

The value may be a text or reference.

Get the value like this:

# Pass no date: using today's date
value = model.get_time_parameter("parameter_code_or_name")
# Pass a date or datetime
value = model.get_time_parameter("parameter_code_or_name", date=datetime.datetime.now()))
# Pass the name of a date/datetime field of the record
value = record.get_time_parameter("parameter_code_or_name", "date")

Example of implementation in another module

Payroll implementation:

  • Menu "Payroll/Configuration/Time Parameters" only shows hr.payslip parameters.
  • New parameters will be hr.payslip parameters.
  • By default, the model_id field is hidden in the form.
<record id="base_time_parameter_action" model="ir.actions.act_window">
    <field name="name">Time Parameters</field>
    <field name="res_model">base.time.parameter</field>
    <field name="view_mode">tree,form</field>
        eval="[('model_id', '=', ref('payroll.model_hr_payslip'))]"
        eval="{'default_model_id': ref('payroll.model_hr_payslip')}"
    name="Time Parameters"

Reference field implementatiton:

from odoo import fields, models

class TimeParameterVersion(models.Model):
    _inherit = "base.time.parameter.version"

    value_reference = fields.Reference(
        selection_add=[("account.account", "Account")],
