Provides stage model and abstract logic for inheritance

Project description

License: LGPL-3

Kanban - Stage Support

This module provides a stage model compatible with Kanban views and the standard views needed to manage these stages. It also provides the base.kanban.abstract model, which can be inherited to add support for Kanban views with stages to any other model. Lastly, it includes a base Kanban view that can be extended as needed.


To install this module, simply follow the standard install process.


No configuration is needed or possible.


  • Inherit from base.kanban.abstract to add Kanban stage functionality to the child model:

    class MyModel(models.Model):
        _name = 'my.model'
        _inherit = 'base.kanban.abstract'
  • Extend the provided base Kanban view (base_kanban_abstract_view_kanban) as needed by the child model while making sure to set the mode to primary so that inheritance works properly. The base view has four name attributes intended to provide convenient XPath access to different parts of the Kanban card. They are card_dropdown_menu, card_header, card_body, and card_footer:

    <record id="my_model_view_kanban" model="ir.ui.view">
        <field name="name">My Model - Kanban View</field>
        <field name="model">my.model</field>
        <field name="mode">primary</field>
        <field name="inherit_id" ref="base_kanban_stage.base_kanban_abstract_view_kanban"/>
        <field name="arch" type="xml">
            <xpath expr="//div[@name='card_header']">
                <!-- Add header content here -->
            <xpath expr="//div[@name='card_body']">
                <!-- Add body content here -->
  • To manage stages, go to Settings > Technical > Kanban > Stages.
