Generate Barcodes for Partners

This module expends Odoo functionality, allowing user to generate barcode depending on a given barcode rule for Partners.

For exemple, a typical pattern for partners is “042………” that means that: * the EAN13 code will begin by ‘042’ * followed by 0 digits (named Barcode Base in this module) * a 13 digit control

With this module, it is possible to:

  • Affect a pattern (barcode.rule) to a res.partner

  • Define a Barcode base:
    • manually, if the base of the barcode must be set by a user. (typically an internal code defined in your company)

    • automaticaly by a sequence, if you want to let Odoo to increment a sequence. (typical case of a customer number incrementation)

  • Generate a barcode, based on the defined pattern and the barcode base


To configure this module, see the ‘Configuration’ Section of the description of the module ‘barcodes_generator_abstract’


To use this module, you need to:

  • Go to a Product form (or a template form):

1 for manual generation
  • Set a Barcode Rule

  • Set a Barcode Base

  • click on the button ‘Generate Barcode (Using Barcode Rule)’

2 for automatic generation
  • Set a Barcode Rule

  • click on the button ‘Generate Base (Using Sequence)’

  • click on the button ‘Generate Barcode (Using Barcode Rule)’

Known issues / Roadmap

Dependency to point_of_sale is required because barcode field, defined in ‘base’ module (in the res.partner model), is defined in a ‘point_of_sale’ view.

It’s a relative problem, because barcodes generation for partners will occures mostly in a Point of Sale context, to give barcodes to customers.

You could comment ‘point_of_sale’ dependencies if you want to use this module without point of sale installed.
