How to install new module in OpenERP 7.0 ?


As we all know that OpenERP 7.0 is near to release soon and all are waiting to use in their live business. We are trying to make people aware that how to install new module in this new version. We found some extra steps which are require to install new module which is different than OpenERP 6.1 version so just sharing with you all guys. We have created a Demo module and put that into addons directory.

1.openerp_7_login_page

Now as we can see, by default there are very less menus available at left sidebar and you won’t find ‘Update Module List’ which is there in OpenERP 6.1 by default.

2.module_list

Now lets do some small changes to see all other configuration options in left side menu list. First go to ‘Users’ menu and select ‘Administrator’ and click on ‘Edit’ button. Now change the value of ‘Administration’ field to Acess Rights and make Technical Features checkbox True. Now save record and reload again. It should display all other menus in the list. If you are not able to see all menus, you may have to re-login into the webclient.

3.admin_user

After performing above steps, you can see all menus at left sidebar as shown in following screen.

4.detail_menu_list

Now according to older version, click on ‘Update Module List’ and follow the instructions.

5.update_module_option

Finally, you will get your new module in the list.

6.module_in_list

  1. I have installed OpenERP 7 on Windows 8 on local host and I work on the browser. My problem with installing new modules is that they never appear on the module list even after doing all the above steps.

    The module folder is copied to
    C:Program Files (x86)OpenERP 7.0-20130118-002240Serverserveropenerpaddons

    but no progress in getting the module listed. I have done hours work on folder permission, etc no luch!

    • I stil can not see the “custom” modules with my installation. But starting openerp with –init option works for any “custom” module to be installed:
      ./openerp-server –init=my_private_module –database=my_db

  2. I can see the the “update modules” button. klicked it several times no error in server log. but even restarting openerp does not show any “foreign” modules i put into the addon directory. this is strange. the modules are there. but they never show up.
    is there kind of switch or list in OE7 which disables “community” modules?

    • Clic on installed modules, and then, in the search box, quit the “instaled” filter… then you can install the foraign modules (in the “Aplications” page, only are the modules online.

  3. I have the same problem… Do you know why that happens?
    Thanks for the tutorial 🙂

  4. How to install new module in OE V7?
    I’ve copied a module directory into /addons folder but it is showing following error “No handler found”
    Can any one help me to setup new module ?
    Thanks

  5. Can you give me the Demo module?? I would rule that is a matter of the module code…

    Thanks!!

    • Hi Dario,
      Thanks for your reply.
      I would like to give you more details.
      My Requirement is – we need a addon to sync the data between openERP and prestashop hence i google and found a URL at https://launchpad.net/openerp-prestashop-sync and also downloaded a “techreceptives-openerp_prestashop_sync-670b2669c27b.zip” file.

      After that, downloaded openerp i.e. openerp-allinone-setup-6.0-latest.exe and installed the same in my windows machine.

      To add new module/addon into openERP, i’ve created new folder as “openerp_prestashop_sync” under “Serverserveropenerpaddons” and then extracted the source files from zip i.e. techreceptives-openerp_prestashop_sync-670b2669c27b.zip. After this setup, i’ve restarted the service of openERP. But it is showing error message as i mentioned in my previous post.

      My question is:
      1. How to install new module/addon into openERP to function without issues?
      2. Is there any steps to follow while setup new module? If so, kindly provide the same. It would be more helpful to me.
      3. In openERP – Is there web service for 1). product import and export 2. sales orders.

      Can you please help me to sync the data between both systems (openERP vs prestashop) ?

      Thanks in advance

      • I think that the Prestashop sync module isn’t yet avaliable in OE 7.0. I’m also very interested in this module, but the problem that you have (“no handler found”) is, probably, becouse the module’s header isn’t compatible with 7.0 version.
        If you have news about the availability of this module in version 7, please inform me. 🙂

  6. – Can you please try to clear your browser cookie ? “No Handler Found” error should be solved.
    – We didn’t tried with Window machine but may be you can clear PYC files and can create new database to test.

  7. can you give me your source demo of openerp in openerp 7.0

  9. Hmm Still doesnt work Omprakash…? Whats wrong many forum are posting the same problems. With almost no resolve? Is the new version not allowing this feature?

  10. I’m new to OpenERP 7 and went through all modules and settings. Earlier, I created a module using blog’s details and they worked also.

    But i saw that there is an option to create model, views and menus in Settings -> Technical -> User Interface -> Views. Also model under database structure.

    Is there any possibility to create a module with that options? I couldn’t find any documentation for OpenERP Ver.7

  11. Did anybody get a solution to this post…I have a similar problem..

  12. THIS SOLUTION WORKS 🙂 Thanks

  13. After “Updating Module List”, Just click on “Installed Modules” menu just above the “Udate Module List” menu. Now remove “Installed” filter from the search box and type your module here.. I think it should work.

  14. I had the same issue:wrote a custom module for OpenERP-v7, but couldn’t see it in the App List to be installed. I followed the steps outlined here to enable the Access Rights for Technical features -still no success.

    I tried so many things before I succeeded:
    1. I think the Access Right thing outlined here worked
    2. I restarted the server with the -init=xxx option where xxx is the module name
    3. I rewrote the __terp__.py file to the new standard for v.7. see http://doc.openerp.com/trunk/developers/server/03_module_dev_01/#manifest-file-openerp-py
    4. My manifest file was named __terp__.py initially. I had it renamed to __openerp__.py

    I dont know exactly which step above gave me the success I long searched for.

    Hope this helps someone else out there

    • After “Updating Module List”, Just click on “Installed Modules” menu just above the “Udate Module List” menu. Now remove “Installed” filter from the search box and type your module here.. I think it should work. Don’t check App List.

  15. AFTER UPDATING PERMISSIONS REFRESH BROWSER otherwise you can’t see the update module’s list

  16. Just give 777 permission on the module folder problem will be solved.
