Attachment Zipped Download

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/knowledge Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

This module allows downloading multiple attachments as a zip file.

This also provide a helper class IrAttachmentActionDownloadMixin to be used by developer to add action method on models.

Table of contents


  1. Go to Settings > Technical > Database Structure > Attachments and select some files.
  2. Go to Actions > Download and a zip file containing the selected files will be downloaded.

## For developer

You can reuse the IrAttachmentActionDownloadMixin on your favorite models:

from odoo import models

class StockPicking(models.Model):
    _name = "stock.picking"
    _inherit = ["stock.picking", "ir.attachment.action_download"]

Then you can add an action button on list view line or on the action button (when multiple lines are selected) to download all files:

        add a button on list view to download all attachement present
        on the given transfert
    <record id="vpicktree" model="ir.ui.view">
        <field name="inherit_id" ref="stock.vpicktree"/>
        <field name="name">stock.picking.tree download attachments</field>
        <field name="model">stock.picking</field>
        <field name="arch" type="xml">
            <field name="json_popover" position="after">
                <button name="action_download_attachments"
                    string="Download attachment(s)"
                    aria-label="Download Proof documents"

        Add "Download attachments" item in the Action menu when
        multiple records are selected
    <record id="action_download_picking_attachements" model="ir.actions.server">
        <field name="name">Download attachments</field>
        <field name="model_id" ref="stock.model_stock_picking"/>
        <field name="binding_model_id" ref="stock.model_stock_picking"/>
        <field name="binding_view_types">list</field>
        <field name="state">code</field>
        <field name="code">
            action = records.action_download_attachments()


Even you will be able to generate a zip file with multiple document with the same name it’s advice to overwrite _compute_zip_file_name to improve the name. When a slash (/) is present in the path it will create a directory. This example will create a directory per stock.picking using its name:

class IrAttachment(models.Model):
    _inherit = "ir.attachment"

    def _compute_zip_file_name(self):
        if self.res_model and self.res_model == "stock.picking":
            return (
                .display_name.replace("/", "-")
                + "/"
                + self.name
        return super()._compute_zip_file_name()
