Workflow Manipulations

Workflows can be moved along by sending them signals.

Signals are sent to a specific record using restapi/1.0/workflow endpoint, and possibly trigger a transition on the workflow instance associated with the record.


Workflow manipulation will be used only for Odoo older version (V8.0, V9.0, V10.0).

GET /restapi/1.0/workflow/{object_name}/{id}/{signal}



this example needs account module installed

GET /restapi/1.0/workflow/account.invoice/5/invoice_open HTTP/1.1
Host: {your_Odoo_server_url}


HTTP/1.1 200 OK
