Add custom field in models

Project description

License: AGPL-3

Base Custom Info

This module allows to create custom fields in models without altering model’s structure.


This module serves as a base for other modules that implement this behavior in concrete models.

This module is a technical dependency and is to be installed in parallel to other modules.


This module defines Custom Info Templates that define what properties are expected for a given record.

To define a template, you need to:

  • Go to Settings > Custom Info > Templates.
  • Create one.
  • Add some Properties to it.

All database records with that template enabled will automatically fill those properties.

To manage the properties, you need to:

  • Go to Settings > Custom Info > Properties.

To manage their values, you need to:

  • Go to Settings > Custom Info > Values.
Try me on Runbot


To create a module that supports custom information, just depend on this module and inherit from the model.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • All data types of custom information values are text strings.
