Label Printing via QZ Tray

Supercharge your inventory operation with easy-to-use label printing.

Installation

This module depends on a desktop tray application called QZ Tray. This application is responsible for performing the hardware communication, and acts as a bridge between Odoo and your Label Printer. QZ Tray is free (though it is recommended that you purchase a license to suppress warnings), and available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX.

The Desktop App

QZ Tray should be installed on the PC that your Label Printer is physically connected to. For network printers, you may want to install this on your workstation PC.

  • Visit qz.io/download and download the latest QZ Tray 2.0 release
  • Run the install wizard
  • You're all done!

Optionally, purchase a warning-supressing license:

  • Visit qz.io/buynow and choose one of the licensing options
  • Follow the certificate install guide on the QZ Tray website
  • Keep your private and public keys close - we'll use them later

The Odoo Module

The Odoo module depends on a Python module called python-cryptography - simply follow the installation guide.

  • Install python-cryptography via the guide above
  • Download the module .zip file from the Odoo App Store
  • Copy the entire contents of the zip file to your server
  • There are several sub-modules, ensure these are copied too
  • Restart your Odoo server
  • Refresh the module list
  • Remove the Apps filter
  • Search for a module called qztray_base (make sure this matches exactly)

Note: This module will auto-install its supporting sub-modules depending on your setup. For example, if you have the Odoo Inventory Management module installed, QZ Tray will auto-install the qztray_product_labels module. Please do not install the sub-modules yourself.

Permissions

The module has a built-in roles system to prevent unauthorized users from editing/deleting your label templates, printers, or keypairs. Permissions are broken down into 3 distinct groups:

Label Printers - are able to print labels, but cannot edit printers, templates, or keypairs.

Label Designers - inherits from Label Printers, but are allowed to edit printers and templates (but not keypairs)

Settings (Keypairs) - have full access to all printers, templates, and keypairs. be careful with this role, as leaking a keypair can be a security threat.

To set permissions, simply visit Settings -> Users -> Your User, then under the Applications heading you will find the QZ Tray group.

Setup

The module is split into several distinct models:

  • Printers
  • Label Templates
  • Key Pairs

1. Printers

A Printer represents a physical printer. Before continuing, please ensure the QZ Tray desktop app is installed, and that the label printer is plugged into the same PC.

  1. Visit Settings -> QZ Tray -> Printers
  2. Create a new printer
  3. Enter a descriptive name
  4. Choose a keypair at the bottom
  5. Click List Printers, then Search
  6. You may need to click Allow on the prompts
  7. Select your printer (normally something like ZDesigner ABC1200)
  8. Save the document

All done! Assuming your printer showed up in the list correctly, you should be ready to start printing labels.

2. Label Templates

Label Templates contain the actual ZPL and Python code for your labels. The are several pre-defined templates, which can be found at Settings -> QZ Tray -> Label Templates.

Some useful resources:

3. Key Pairs

The QZ Tray Desktop App uses public-key cryptography to secure API communications. Basically, anyone with access can send requests to the App, but these requests will cause a popup to show on the PC, asking if you would like to Allow or Deny the request. You may have seen this when setting up your first printer.

  • The app comes with a default, non-signed certificate. This means that you will need to click Allow for each print job by default.
  • Alternatively, you can purchase a signed certificate from QZ Industries LLC. These signed certificates will allow you to enable 'silent printing', and you will not need to click Allow at all.
  • It is also possible to generate your own root certificate, and use that to self-sign your own keypair. This is an advanced feature and not recommended.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the keypair system.
