Table of contents


This module is based on the Instant Messaging Bus. To work properly, the server must be launched in gevent mode.


To send a notification to the user you just need to call one of the new methods defined on res.users:

self.env.user.notify_success(message='My success message')


self.env.user.notify_danger(message='My danger message')


self.env.user.notify_warning(message='My warning message')


self.env.user.notify_info(message='My information message')


self.env.user.notify_default(message='My default message')
Sample notifications

You can test the behaviour of the notifications by installing this module in a demo database. Access the users form through Settings -> Users & Companies. You’ll see a tab called “Test web notify”, here you’ll find two buttons that’ll allow you test the module.
