Template Content Swapper

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

This module offers a generic functionality for replacing QWeb view elements. Typically, element replacements are conducted through a template using an XPATH replacement by creating a new module. With this module, users don’t need to do this; they simply need to create template.content.mapping records for the templates they wish to modify.


  • Replace ‘Salesperson’ label with ‘Sales Representative’ in the quotation print.
  • Replace ‘Add to Cart’ button with ‘Add to Basket’ in the eCommerce product page.

Table of contents


Go to Settings > Technical > User Interface > Template Content Mappings to create/maintain records.

Following fields should be filled in:

  • Report (optional): Report record that includes the string you’d like to replace. Setting a report record will automatically update the template field.
  • Template (required): The main QWeb template (ir.ui.view record) that includes the string you’d like to replace.
  • Language (optional): Target language for string replacement. If left blank, the replacement will be applied to all languages.
  • Content From (required): An existing string to be replaced.
  • Content To (optional): A new string to replace the existing string.


To use this module, first configure the template content mappings.


Then, go to the UI where your configured template is utilized.
