How to create recurring invoice in Odoo?

First install "Recurring Documents" module.

Now follow this path. Settings => Technical => Automation => Recurring Types and create record with name should be any thing and object must be Invoice.

Settings => Technical => Automation => Recurring Documents and create document for invoice. In Source Document, we may select which invoice we need to create recurring.

Save this record and click on red button called "Process"

We can see that Cron Job is created.

Documents Created tab is empty because currently no invoice is created.

 After Scheduler run the document is created. (NOTE: I have changed interval unit from Months to Days so next interval can match and create invoice instantly. Otherwise it will create once on monthly basis.)

How to create constraints in OpenERP v7, Odoo 8,9, and 10 ?

This will help you to create a constraints in OpenERP.

_constraint is a pre-define field in OpenERP. It is used for adding a constraint on the object.

It takes list of tuple as its argument. The tuple inside the list contains three parameter.
  1. Method (to check the constraint)
  2. The Message (Pop-up message for End User)
  3. List of Fields (fields to apply the constraint)
_constraint will fire if the condition returns False on creation and updation of the record and display the message.

Here is an example of integer data-type. It's fire a constraint if length is not positive.

Here is .py side code:

Old API:
from openerp.osv import fields, osv
class res_partner(osv.Model):
    _inherit = 'res.partner'

    _columns = {       
        'length': fields.integer('Length', size=64),

    def _check_number(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):
        for partner in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):
            if partner.length < 0:
                return False
        return True    
    _constraints = [
        (_check_length, 'Length must be Positive.', ['length'])

New API:

from openerp.exceptions import ValidationError
from openerp import api, fields, models, _

class Partner(models.Model):
    _inherit = 'res.partner'
    def _check_length(self):
        if self.length < 0:
            raise ValidationError("Length must be Positive.")

    length = fields.integer('Length', size=64)

Here is .xml side code:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
        <!-- res partner form view-->
        <record id="view_res_partner_extended_form" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">res.partner.extended.form.view</field>
            <field name="model">res.partner</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="base.view_partner_form"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <field name="email" position="after">
                    <field name="length"/>

How to install Wkhtmltopdf package in Odoo?

This will help for Ubuntu system.
Once we install Odoo v8 and try to print report. WE may see notice at right hand side in black box with message.

You should upgrade your version of Wkhtmltopdf to at least 0.12.0 in order to get a correct display of headers and footers as well as support for table-breaking between pages.
That means Odoo v8 support the 0.12.0 or greater  than version of Wkhtmltopdf. So need to just follow the below steps:

cd /tmp

tar -xvf wkhtmltox-linux-amd64_0.12.0-03c001d.tar.xz
cd wkhtmltox
cd bin/
mv wkhtmltopdf /usr/bin/

mv wkhtmltoimage /usr/bin/
cd ..
cd lib/
mv /lib64
mv /lib64
mv /lib64

cd /usr/bin/
sudo chown root:root wkhtmlto*
cd /lib64
sudo chown root:root libwkhtmlto*
sudo chown -h root:root libwkhtmlto*

Now reboot the system using this command.

sudo reboot

After than we need to start the Odoo server, Login in database and follow the below GUI step:

Configuration -> Parameter -> Parameters Systems
Create a new record like :

    Tipe : webkit_path
    Value : /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf
If you show above record in your Odoo System that means now everything is fine.
