Base Dynamic List

Very often during an Odoo implementation, we need to add selection fields on a native objet, and we don't want to have a hard-coded selection list (fields.Selection), but a selection list that can be changed by users (Many2one field). For that, the developper needs to add a new object (with just a 'name' and 'sequence' field) with a form/tree view. The goal of this module is to speed-up this process by defining a dynamic list object that already has all the required views.

This module provides several ready-to-go objects:

  • simple list : fields name, sequence and active
  • translatable list : fields name with translate=True, sequence and active
  • code list : fields code (unique), name, sequence and active
  • translatable code list : fields code (unique), name with translate=True, sequence and active

These objects are readable by the employee group. The system group has full rights on it.

To use it, you need to do 2 or 3 things :

  1. Add an entry in the domain field and the object you selected:

domain = fields.Selection(selection_add=[('risk.type', "Risk Type")])

  1. Add the many2one field on your object:
risk_type_id = fields.Many2one(
'dynamic.list', string="Risk Type", ondelete='restrict', domain=[('domain', '=', 'risk.type')])
  1. Optionally, you can add a dedicated action and a menu entry (otherwize, you can use the generic menu entry under Settings > Technical > Dynamic Lists:
<record id="dynamic_list_risk_type_action" model="ir.actions.act_window">
<field name="name">Risk Type</field> <field name="res_model">dynamic.list</field> <field name="view_mode">tree,form</field> <field name="domain">[('domain', '=', 'risk.type')]</field> <field name="context">{'default_domain': 'risk.type'}</field>


<menuitem id="dynamic_list_risk_type_menu" action="dynamic_list_risk_type_action" parent="parent_menu_xmlid"/>

Limitation: when you want to have different access rights on these lists depending on the source object, you should prefer to use dedicated objects.
