I have also experienced this, but the instructions below do not seem to work. Any more ideas? It was working perfectly up to 3rd July 2013 - has something been changed?

Hello,

Since beginning of June 2013, we are using the protocol XML-RPC Secure to connect the OpenOffice Report Designer to the OpenERP Online instances.

Here are the steps you need to follow to use the new plugin:

  • 0a) Don't forget to add a password to your user ( cf question 4900 )
  • 0b) Don't forget that this plugin works with OpenOffice and with Libreoffice until V3.6 , but not with Libreoffice V4.0+
  • 1) In your instance , go to Settings/Modules/base_report_designer, click on "upgrade"
  • 2) In your instance, go to Settings/Configuration Wizards/OpenERP Report Designer Installation/Set as To Do/Launch/Download the file.
  • 3) Rename your file by adding ".zip" at the end of the file name
  • 4) In OpenOffice, (Tools/Extension manager) disable the existing extension
  • 4b) If necessary, delete manually the plugins from the application data (google..)
  • 5) Restart OpenOffice
  • 6) In OpenOffice, (Tools/Extension manager) Add the new extension file
  • 7) Restart Openoffice
  • 8) In Openoffice Report Designer/Server parameters ; fill in with the following settings: Server: YOUR_INSTANCE.my.openerp.com Port: 443 Protocol: XML-RPC secure
  • 9) Continue with the same steps as before ( type in the name of your instance )

I hope it will help you.

the openoffice extension as downloaded thru the link (step 2 above) provided during the setup of the base_report_designer module creates an error when installing it as an OO extension. Any fix to this?

not for SaaS but for an installation in a local network you have to use the port of the apache server and NOT any other port like 8069, 8070, 8071 related to RPC, in my case 80 work fine (even from a PC which is not the server), however I do not know what works for SaaS

I followed your instructions, but keep getting wrong username / password if I try to connect with the Report Designer. For 100% sure the username & password are o.k., I use admin / <password> with which I can logon to OpenERP without any problem.

In the default openerp-server.conf is the next line:

specify the TCP port for the XML-RPC Secure protocol

xmlrpcs_port = 8071

Sure the port 443 mentioned in your answer should be used, not 8071?
