Chapter 10 - Odoo 15 Development Book

Redirect old URL

You must migrate from a current system or website to the Odoo website. Replace your old URLs with a new URL. While using redirection of URLs, all of your SEO ranks will improve. In this, we will be discussing how to transfer to new. And also, We'll examine how to redirect old URLs to new ones in this recipe.

For using the Redirects, Go to Website > Configuration > Redirects.We can see a tree view of the redirects; just click on the create button to create a new record.


The form view of the redirect is shown.Here we can see some fields. Just take a look at which are that and those uses.

Name: Name of the website rewrite

Action: Which action will perform on that rewrite. There are mainly four types of actions

  • 302 Moved Temporarly
  • 404 Not Found
  • 301 Moved Permanently
  • 308 Redirect/ Rewrite

302 Moved Temporarily: An HTTP status code of 302 means the page the user is trying to access has been temporarily moved to a different location. The server returns the user to the new destination with a 302 "Found" or "Moved Temporarily" redirect, even though the original location is still being used for requests.

404 Not Found: A 404 error is an HTTP Status number that indicates that the page you attempted to access on a website was not located on their server.

301 Moved Permanently: The 301 Transferred Permanently redirect status response code from the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) indicates that the requested resource has been definitively moved to the URL specified in the Location headers. Search engines update their links to the resource after a browser redirects to the updated URL.

308 Redirect/ Rewrite: The 308 Permanent Redirect redirect status response code indicates that the resource requested has been permanently redirected to the URL specified in the Location headers. A browser redirects to this page, and search engines update their links to the resource (the 'link-juice' is transmitted to the new URL in SEO parlance).

Url from: Old url

Url to: new url

Website: The Website field is used when you are using the multi-website feature and you want to limit the redirection rule to one website only. By default, however, the rule will be applied to all websites.

Active: Which can used if you want to enable/disable rules from time to time.

Manage website record

Website record are the records that everything on the website. The everything created or checking on the front end of the website will be stored on the back end of the website. We can see that the all details of the website that are stored on the backend. We can take a look at how to create a website form and how to store that value on to the backend.

First of all we have to create a menu named Repair order for that

<record id="menu_repair_form" model="">
    <field name="name">Repair Order</field>
    <field name="url">/repair_webform</field>
    <field name="parent_id" ref="website.main_menu"/>
    <field name="sequence">55</field>

By clicking this created menu we can see a form view for that we have to design that form view.

<template id="create_repair" name="Repair Order">
    <t t-call="website.layout">
    <div id="wrap">
    <div class="oe_structure">
    <div class="container">
    <form role="form" action="/create/webrepair" method="POST">
    <input type="hidden" name="csrf_token" t-att-value="request.csrf_token()"/>
    <div class="form-group">
    <label for="product_id" class="control-label"> Product </label>
    <select name="product_id" class="form-control link-style">
    <t t-foreach="product_rec" t-as="product">
    <option t-esc="" t-att-value=""/>
    <div class="form-group">
    <label for="product_qty" class="control-label"> Quantity </label>
    <input type="number" name="product_qty" t-att-value="product_qty" id="product_qty" class="form-control"/>
    <div class="form-group">
    <label for="product_uom" class="control-label"> UOM </label>
    <select name="product_uom" class="form-control link-style">
    <t t-foreach="uom" t-as="uom">
    <option t-esc="" t-att-value=""/>
    <div class="form-group">
    <label for="partner_id" class="control-label"> Customer </label>
    <select name="partner_id" class="form-control link-style">
    <t t-foreach="customer_id" t-as="customer">
    <option t-esc="" t-att-value=""/>
    <div class="form-group">
    <label for="location_id" class="control-label"> Location </label>
    <select name="location_id" class="form-control link-style">
    <t t-foreach="location_id" t-as="location">
    <option t-esc="" t-att-value=""/>
    <div class="clearfix oe_login_buttons">
    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary pull-left">Submit</button>

Next we can write a controller for this on that python file we have to write the things which fields and what are the things we can seen on the website form.

class Request(http.Controller):
	@http.route(['/repair_webform'], type='http', auth="public", website=True)
	def repair_webform(self, **kw):
    	product_rec = request.env['product.product'].sudo().search([])
    	uom = request.env['uom.uom'].sudo().search([])
    	customer_id = request.env['res.partner'].sudo().search([])
    	location_id = request.env['stock.location'].sudo().search([])
    	return request.render("website_demo.create_repair", {
        	'product_rec': product_rec,
        	'uom': uom,
        	'customer_id': customer_id,
        	'location_id': location_id,
	@http.route(['/create/webrepair'], type='http', auth="public", website=True)
	def create_webrepair(self, **kw):
    	return request.render("website_demo.repair_thanks", {})

Here we can see that on the repair_webform() the fields that are shown on the form are specifield. But on the create_webrepair() function just create a new record based on the previous functions values
