Adding context to reports

Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/reporting-engine Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module adds a context variable to reports. A possible use for this context could be hiding some fields or many other configuration options.

Table of contents


To configure this module, you need to:

  • Enter Odoo in debug mode.
  • To add a specific context to a report, you should go to Settings -> Reporting -> Reporting and look for the report you want to edit on the list. You will see that now they contain a new field called Context Value , where you will be able to add all the desired context parameters.
  • Go to Settings -> Parameters -> System Parameters. On the system parameters list, look for report.default.context, which is a Python dictionary variable where you can add a context that will be common for all reports.

It can also be added on the developer side using:

<record id="model_name.report_id" model="">
    <field name="context">YOUR CONTEXT HERE</field>
