ADO.NET Provider for Odoo

Build 20.0.7654


Calls a server-side RPC within Odoo.

Procedure-Specific Information

Odoo exposes its RPCs using the External API. This API uses an XML-RPC method called execute_kw to call Odoo procedures on specific modules. Internally the method looks like this:
execute_kw(database, user_id, password, model, operation, arguments, keyword_args)

The provider will provide the connection information automatically, so the only parameters required for CallProcedure are the model, the operation, a list of arguments and a map of keyword arguments. The arguments and keyword arguments are provided as a JSON array and object respectively. The provider will take the result of the RPC and convert it back into JSON for the procedure output.

For example, you could call the 'read' method on the 'hr.employee' model to read information about specific employees. In this case you would retrieve the name and department for the employees with the IDs 2 and 4:

EXECUTE CallProcedure
  Model = 'hr.employee',
  Operation = 'read',
  -- The read RPC takes one argument, which is the list of IDs
  Arguments = '[[4, 2]]',
  KeywordArgs = '{"fields": ["department_id", "name"]}'

Calling this procedure on the Odoo sample data will return this JSON result:

  {"department_id": [4, "Research & Development"], "id": 4, "name": "Sharlene Rhodes"},
  {"department_id": [4, "Research & Development"], "id": 2, "name": "Ronnie Hart"}
