MuK REST API for Odoo
A customizable Restful API for Odoo
MuK IT GmbH - www.mukit.at
Enables a REST API for the Odoo server. The API has routes to authenticate and retrieve a token. Afterwards, a set of routes to interact with the server are provided. The API can be used by any language or framework which can make an HTTP requests and receive responses with JSON payloads and works with both the Community and the Enterprise Edition.
In case the module should be active in every database just change
the auto install flag to

should be loaded right at the server start. This can be done by

In addition to the existing API endpoints, more can easily be added. It is not necessary to write any kind of code. New endpoints can be created in the backend and are immediately available through the API.
Different types of endpoints can be created. For example the domain evaluation can be used to query certain data and return it via the API.
Contect to the API
Since the API follows the OAuth1 and OAuth2 standards, it is advisable to use a suitable client that can be found in almost every programming language. A list of some of them can be found at this link.
import json import requests from requests_oauthlib import OAuth2Session from oauthlib.oauth2 import LegacyApplicationClient client_id = 'LegacyApplicationFlowDemoClientKey' client_secret = 'LegacyApplicationFlowDemoClientSecret' token_url = 'https://demo12.mukit.at/api/authentication/oauth2/token' username = 'demo' password = 'demo' scope = ['all'] oauth = OAuth2Session( client=LegacyApplicationClient(client_id=client_id) ) token = oauth.fetch_token( token_url=token_url, username=username, password=password, client_id=client_id, client_secret=client_secret ) print(oauth.get("https://demo12.mukit.at/api/user").json())
Find more examples about how to connect to the API via a OAuth client in the documentation.
Extend the API
Even if the API is extended using Python code, the REST API framework provides a number of helpers. Keep in mind that if these extensions are included in a new module, it may also have to be loaded as a global module to make the created endpoints available without a selected database.
from odoo import http from odoo.http import request, Response from odoo.addons.muk_rest import tools from odoo.addons.muk_rest.utils.json import ResponseEncoder class ModelController(odoo.http.Controller): @odoo.http.route([ '/api/myapp/myroute' ], auth="none", type='http', methods=['GET'], csrf=False) @tools.common.parse_exception @tools.common.ensure_database @tools.common.ensure_module() @tools.security.protected() def myroute(self, **kw): result = ... content = json.dumps(result, sort_keys=True, indent=4, cls=ResponseEncoder) return Response(content, content_type='application/json;charset=utf-8', status=200)

Enables a REST API for the Odoo server. The API has routes to authenticate and retrieve a token. Afterwards, a set of routes to interact with the server are provided.
A generic, spec-compliant, thorough implementation of the OAuth request-signinglogic for Python. To install OAuthLib please follow the instructions or install the library via pip.
pip install oauthlib
To install this module, you need to:
Download the module and add it to your Odoo addons folder. Afterward, log on to your Odoo server and go to the Apps menu. Trigger the debug mode and update the list by clicking on the "Update Apps List" link. Now install the module by clicking on the install button.
Another way to install this module is via the package management for Python (PyPI).
To install our modules using the package manager make sure odoo-autodiscover is installed correctly. Then open a console and install the module by entering the following command:
pip install --extra-index-url https://nexus.mukit.at/repository/odoo/simple <module>
The module name consists of the Odoo version and the module name, where underscores are replaced by a dash.
sudo -H pip3 install --extra-index-url https://nexus.mukit.at/repository/odoo/simple odoo11-addon-muk-utils
Once the installation has been successfully completed, the app is already in the correct folder. Log on to your Odoo server and go to the Apps menu. Trigger the debug mode and update the list by clicking on the "Update Apps List" link. Now install the module by clicking on the install button.
The biggest advantage of this variant is that you can now also update the app using the "pip" command. To do this, enter the following command in your console:
pip install --upgrade --extra-index-url https://nexus.mukit.at/repository/odoo/simple <module>
When the process is finished, restart your server and update the application in Odoo. The steps are the same as for the installation only the button has changed from "Install" to "Upgrade".
For modules licensed under OPL-1, you will receive access data when you purchase the module. If the modules were not purchased directly from MuK IT please contact our support (email@example.com) with a confirmation of purchase to receive the corresponding access data.
To upgrade this module, you need to:
Download the module and add it to your Odoo addons folder. Restart the server and log on to your Odoo server. Select the Apps menu and upgrade the module by clicking on the upgrade button.
If you installed the module using the "pip" command, you can also update the module in the same way. Just type the following command into the console:
pip install --upgrade --extra-index-url https://nexus.mukit.at/repository/odoo/simple <module>
When the process is finished, restart your server and update the application in Odoo, just like you would normally.
In case the module should be active in every database just change the auto install flag to True. To activate the routes even if no database is selected the module should be loaded right at the server start. This can be done by editing the configuration file or passing a load parameter to the start script.
To configure this module, you need to:
- Go to Settings -> Restful API -> Dashboard. Here you can see an overview of all your APIs.
- Click on Create or go to either Restful API -> OAuth1 or Restful API -> OAuth2 to create a new API.
This module provides a set of routes to interact with the system via HTTP requests. Take a look at the clients and examples or open the documentation to get a detailed description of every available route.

Interested in buying the module
Hi, is it possible to work with odoo.sh and working directly on creating new contacts and crm opportunities from an outside web page ? thanks, -LV
Re: Interested in buying the module
Looks very well built, but...
... if you could point the main advantages over the standard odoo API, it would probably be selling more =)
Re: Looks very well built, but...
Odoo uses XMLRPC as their API. The biggest advantage of a REST API is that there is excellent support for REST clients in every language. Additionally, the API provides OAuth as an authentication method. Since this is also a standard a suitable client exists in almost every language. OAuth allows you to login to the Odoo server with a client key/secret. This has the big advantage that no user data has to be passed on to an external app. In addition, the access rights can be set individually and therefore the external app can only have access the desired data.
Does it work for V8.0
It only works for the specified versions.
