Route route handler

Beta 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.

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

  • /!IMPORTANT /!when working w/ multiple workers you MUST restart the instance every time you add or modify a route from the UI (eg: w/ the endpoint module) otherwise is not granted that the routing map is going to be up to date on all workers. @simahawk as already a POC to fix this.
  • add api docs helpers
  • allow multiple HTTP methods on the same endpoint
