This talk is will be of special interest to developers, and applies to Odoo versoins 10 and 11, both Enterprise and Community.
As Odoo becomes one of the central pieces of enterprise IT systems, it often becomes necessary to set up specialized service interfaces, so existing systems can interact with Odoo. While the XML-RPC interface of Odoo comes in handy in such situations, it requires a deep understanding of Odoo’s internal data model. When used extensively, it creates a strong coupling between Odoo’s internal and client systems, therefore increasing maintenance costs.
In this talk, developers will learn to use the ‘base_rest’ addon to design, develop and test high level REST APIs for Odoo. This addon uses Swagger tooling to expose familiar, beautiful, standard based, self-documenting APIs. Additional characteristics include strong input/output data validation as well as authentication and authorization using native Odoo mechanisms.
We will cover this with a short presentation and live demo on Odoo 11 Enterprise.
