Server Actions - Navigate

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/server-backend Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module provides a generic tool to have the possibility to see a list of records associated to a given selection of records. This is basically the UI version of recordset.mapped('field1.field2').

For example, if you use the sale module, you can configure an action to see all the products that have been sold for a given selection of sale orders.
