Re: Plugin/module multiplexer/switcher for multi company

I think it's probably different from a context to another.

In our case, the majority of our customers work internationally. Their search for information is dissociated. The autocomplete is not linked to the company in which the user is connected but the country on which he creates the new partner for which he is looking for information.

All the countries we needed to cover for this customer had different connection modes and incompatible data structures. We have therefore chosen to process outside Odoo in order to standardize the structure of the results thanks to different mappings. Odoo connects to the service, the service gets data and digests the information.

Hope it helps !

I have a client that has multi company installation. Each company resides in a different country. For each country I have created a module that acts the same as partner_autocomplate but retrieveing data from their local authorities (state registers). Now I would like to create something as a plugin system where the client could use all of these modules for different companies. So I'd need to create some sort of plugins and multiplexer/switcher that would route requests to appropriate plugin. Is there anything like that already existing in Odoo?

One approach that I see would be creating that multiplexer/switcher as a main module that would provide company-specific configuration. Each of the plugin modules would be a module of its own extending the main module's list of available plugins implemented as fields.Selection via selection_add. That selection would be used as company-specific configuration to know, which plugin should server the requests. So when requests comes and it is passed through plugins each would be able to tell whether it's the correct one to serve it.

Is there a better way to do this? Any suggestions are welcome.

Best regards
