Pdf watermark

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

This module was written to add watermarks (backgrounds) to PDF reports. Because of the way wkhtmltopdf handles headers and footers in the current versions, it is quite impossible to have a background for the complete page using HTML and CSS. That is why this module inserts the image at the PDF level.

Installation

As PyPDF is not supported in python3, you need to install PyPDF2:

$ pip install pypdf2

Usage

To use this module, you need to:

  1. go to your report
  2. select a PDF or image to use as watermark. Note that resolutions and size must match, otherwise you’ll have funny results
  3. You can also fill in an expression that returns the data (base64 encoded) to be used as watermark

Known issues / Roadmap

This module depends on support for transparent backgrounds in Wkhtmltopdf, which has been flaky in the past. This module has been reported to work with Wkhtmltopdf 0.12.4.
