OpenERP and Heartbleed

ShareThis !
April 11, 2014 8:09 PM
The Open Sourcerer

No doubt by now you will have seen loads of stuff in the media about the Heartbleed bug. This is a pretty bad bug, there have been other huge bugs in the past too, but this one has a very media friendly name and a cute logo so it gets the coverage that it deserves. In short it affects https connections to web servers and other types of server that use ssl in a less obvious way. We have been updating and fixing servers that we host but we know that rather a lot of people have been using our guides to installing OpenERP, if you have, and you set up the https connections to the server (part 2 of the guides), then you are probably vulnerable to the heartbleed bug. OpenERP itself does not do the https bit, we used either Apache or Nginx as a reverse proxy to add the ssl layer.

Firstly use this testing tool http://filippo.io/Heartbleed to see if your system is vulnerable. You may need to check the box to ignore certificates if you are using a self-signed certificate. The fix to OpenSSL is already in the Ubuntu repositories, so you just need to pull the upgrade (this will update all packages, which is fine)

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

and then restart your webserver service, which could be apache or nginx, if you can’t remember which then just try both, one will fail with an unrecognised service error.

sudo service nginx restart
sudo service apache2 restart

This might get you up and running in seconds, but I found one one machine the openerp process had got a bit upset, if you can’t log in after restarting the web process then you could restart the openerp server process, or just restart everything with:

sudo reboot

Now use http://filippo.io/Heartbleed again to confirm that you are fixed.

If you are not using https you might be fine, you have an inherently less secure connection to your server, but the server won’t serve up it’s memory to anyone who asks for it. Even if you are not using https right now, do update anyway, it is a good thing to do.

De nouvelles fonctionnalités pour le connecteur OpenERP-Magento

ShareThis !
March 25, 2014 5:30 AM
Akretion

Le mode de base pour la synchronisation des produits dans le connecteur OpenERP-Magento est dans le sens Magento vers OpenERP.
Le produits sont créés dans Magento puis importé dans OpenERP via le connecteur.

Akretion vous propose dorénavant d'avoir le choix dans la gestion du catalogue produit !

En effet, Akretion a développé une série de modules permettant la gestion du catalogue dans OpenERP.

Le processus est donc différent, les produits peuvent maintenant être créés dans OpenERP qui permet la gestion des attributs et des variantes de produits correspondant au fonctionnement de Magento. Puis les produits sont exportés dans Magento via le connecteur.

Principe de l’export vers Magento

L’exportation vers Magento se fait par l'intermédiaire de tâches (jobs) organisées en queue. 
Lorsque l’on enregistre une modification sur un produit synchronisé avec Magento, une tâche d’export vient s’ajouter dans la liste des tâches à traiter. Elle sera ensuite effectuée par un par un “worker”.

Liste des tâches traitées automatiquement par OpenERP, sur cette image on peut voir l’exportation de deux produits vers Magento.

Gérer ses attributs

Les attributs dans OpenERP sont organisés en jeux d’attributs, groupes d’attributs et attributs. Un produit possède un jeux d’attributs (écrans, appareils photo, …), dans lequels on retrouve plusieurs groupes d’attributs (les différents prix, les caractéristiques techniques, …) eux mêmes composés d’attributs (taille, type de sortie, …)

Les attributs peuvent être de plusieurs types, champ texte, booléen, sélection dans une liste, nombre entier, décimal, image et d’autres.

Tous ces attributs sont synchronisés avec Magento à l’export du produit

Tous les attributs spécifiques au produit sont disponible dans une vue générée automatique à partir d’un bouton sur la vue du produit.

Gérer ses variantes de produits

Comme dans Magento, on retrouve dans OpenERP la notion de produit configurable. On a donc un template de produit qui peut se décliner en plusieurs produits selon une dimension. Par exemple, pour un T-shirt on aura plusieurs couleurs et plusieurs tailles.

Depuis une vue sur le produit configurable, il est facile de venir générer tous les produits de la gamme.

Un écran avec plusieurs tailles générée automatiquement à partir de l’attribut taille.


Pour parfaire votre utilisation de ces nouveautés Akretion organise une formation les 15-16 et 17 Avril 2014

Formation OpenERP / Magento : 15, 16, 17 Avril 2014 à Lyon

ShareThis !
March 07, 2014 5:30 AM
Akretion

 

Akretion organise une nouvelle formation sur le connecteur OpenERP-Magento.

Consécutivement à la formation de Redwood city en Californie en partenariat avec OpenERP, nous organisons cette fois la formation MagentoERPconnect en France à Lyon.

Ce connecteur repose sur Connector, le framework de synchronisation de la communauté d'OpenERP.

Cet outil est devenu un standard de fait pour toute synchronisation avec notre outil favori.

Plusieurs nouveautés au menu de cette formation notamment la gestion du catalogue possible dans l'ERP et export dans Magento

 

Pourquoi un ERP pour l'ecommerce ?

On le sait tous, les comparateurs rendent la concurrence rude dans l'ecommerce, les marges sont faibles.

Un impératif, se démarquer par la nature de son catalogue mais aussi par le volume de ses ventes.

Un nombre de commandes élevé impose un traitement administratif colossal dans de nombreux domaines : gestion de stock, logistique, transport, achats, comptabilité.

Ils devient rapidement impossible de réaliser cette gestion sans outil approprié. Un ERP devient un allié incontournable. Mais encore faut-il avoir un outil souple pour s'adpater aux pratiques qui évoluent beaucoup dans le cadre de l'ecommerce ? Pour beaucoup OpenERP est le meilleur choix dans ce domaine.

 


A qui est destinée cette formation ?

Cette formation s'adresse aux e-commerçants actuels ou futurs qui veulent gérer l’ensemble de leurs processus avec deux des meilleurs outils du moment : OpenERP et Magento. C'est également la formation idéale pour les intégrateurs OpenERP  qui veulent mener à bien leur projet e-commerce.

Elle vous permettra de prendre en main OpenERP dans le cadre d’un projet e-commerce. Cette formation est indispensable pour quiconque souhaiterais se lancer dans la mise en place d’OpenERP avec Magento.

 

Pourquoi le framework Connector

Connector est utilisé par plusieurs intégrateurs important pour synchroniser OpenERP avec d'autres applications, notamment PrestaShop, Solr et OpenERP avec lui-même dans le cadre d'une utilisation en multi-companies.

Cette utilisation dans plusieurs domaines est un gage de fiabilité puisqu'on mutualise la maintenance, sujet très important lors des changements de versions de l'ERP.

Il est basé sur des tâches individuelles d'import et d'export, ce qui amène un maximum de visibilité sur les données en cours de synchronisation mais surtout de la fiabilité en ne bloquant pas tous les imports lorsqu'une seule commande pose problème.

The OpenERP PosBox Campaign

ShareThis !
February 08, 2014 4:21 PM
Elico Corp

An update of the POS Box developments by OpenERP R&D teams:

In a nutshell, the software development on the Point of Sale is done, merged in trunk and deployed on our SaaS platform. The overall speed of the POS has been further improved and it now works with 100 000 product listings.

The PosBox software is done as well, everything works, has been tested and re-tested. Receipt printing, barcode scanning, cashbox opening, network auto-discovery, etc.
And as a last minute surprise, we also secured funding to add more full time developers on the Point of Sale, who will develop everything needed for bars and restaurants !

Unfortunately, we had issues with our hardware suppliers, which means the shipping could not be done on time. Shipping of the hardware kits has started for some of our European partners, the rest will start shipping in a week or two.

Receipt Printing

We’ve based our developments around the Epson TM-T20 Thermal Printer, a very popular and affordable model that suits most business needs. The Posbox communicates with the TM-T20 printer with the ESC/POS protocol and will thus work with other 80mm ESC/POS printers – although we need to whitelist them in the driver, see discussion on the community mailing list on this subject.

We’ve tried our best to make sure that everything is entirely plug and play, works around user errors, and require as little technical expertise as possible. In other words it ‘Just Works’. For example, the printer driver will auto-detect and configure the correct language settings. This currently works with Latin and Cyrillic based languages and a few eastern based languages, there is on ongoing work to support the remaining ones, please join the mailing list discussion if you are interested in helping us.

The receipt design has also been much improved. It now displays your company’s logo and custom header and footer message can be added from the backend. A tax detail listing all the separate tax subtotals has been added as well.

Cashdrawer

The cashdrawer simply connects to the receipt printer, and will open automatically when a cash payment is processed. It can also be opened manually in the POS’s payment screen. While we recommend the Metapace K-1, we have successfully tested many other models and we are confident it will work with any Epson compatible cashdrawer.

Barcode Scanning

Barcode scanning was already supported out of the box by the previous version, but now you can use the posbox to scan barcodes on devices lacking a usb port. While we recommend the Metapace S-61, any decent barcode scanner should work out of the box.

PosBox Setup

Setting up the PosBox couldn’t be easier, just plug it to the local network, and start the POS from a locally connected device. The device will quickly auto-detect and connect to the PosBox with all peripherals ready to use.


On the client-side the PosBox status indicator will notify the user of any potential problem.


Technically, the PosBox consists of a barbone OpenERP install with just three OpenERP python modules: hw_proxy, hw_escpos and hw_scanner. Those modules and their functionalities can be modified and extended just like any other OpenERP module. They are not restricted to the posbox and can be installed and used on any linux machine. So if you are running the Point of Sale from a laptop or desktop computer, the PosBox can be replaced by a barebones local OpenERP install.

The posbox is based on a Raspberry Pi platform with the software placed on a SD-Card, if you already have a Raspberry Pi you can already test the posbox by running it with the PosBox disk image

Other Point of Sale Improvements

The loading time of the Point of Sale has been vastly improved, it is now possible to load 100 000 products in less than a minute. And this waiting time will be reduced to zero when we finish to implement the client-side data cache. OpenERP’s Point of Sale should now be an incredibly fast experience !

To-dos

We were too short on the timing get the digital scale driver in a releasable state for the release, it will be released later as a PosBox software update. The documentation still needs some work as well and is our current priority.

Other issues we are working on is making the PosBox boot faster, ideally we would like it to be ready under 10 seconds as currently it takes a little less than a minute, and that boot delay can be confusing. We are also going to put a remote update mechanism so that you don’t need to swap sd-cards to get updates.

As for the partner demo data we promised as part of the campaign, they will be ready for the release of OpenERP v8 which is just around the corner.

But the biggest task, is adding support for bars & restaurants, with table management, etc. Additional developers will be dedicated to this task. The POS project is taking off fast!

So as you can see, we have still a lot to do, and that means the campaign continues ! So this is not the last blog post, and we’ll keep you updated with exiting news!

Shipping & Delivery

Mid January 2014, we have started to ship the Barcode Scanners, Receipt Printers and Cashdrawers to our European customers. As for the PosBox, we have already received most the hardware, but we are still waiting for the SD-Cards and power supplies. They are scheduled to arrive mid-February 2014, then we will sill need a few days to install the software and do the packaging.

OpenERP v8 R&D milestones and philosophy

Anthony Lesuisse, Head of OpenERP RD department delivers hereafter his view on the OpenERP v8 roadmap

We plead guilty about not communicating enough about the developments going on at openerp. We prefer spending more time on fixing bugs and developing awesomefeatures

As you probably know, EVERYTHING we do is publicly available on launchpad and runbot.openerp.com but there are thousands of branches and it can be a maze for the layman.

We eat our own dog food as we use OpenERP project management A LOT, with kanban views, etherpad and openchatter. Every task contains the links to the different branches involved.

What are the available branch for testing OpenERP v8

We use the following stages:

  • Backlog (new ideas or wishes)
  • Specification (Functional, technical and usability)
  • Development
  • Functional and usability Testing
  • Code review and merge
  • Communication and marketing (manifest update and changelog, blog posts)
  • Deployment

Tasks are currently are split among 6 projects:

Three of them are persistent:

  • Framework (ie apiculture, new BI matrix/graph)
  • Usability and functional improvement (ie gamification, survey, mass mail, resource workday in base_action_rules, many many small improvement)
  • Platform (our internal openerp, and saas cloud management)

Three of them are temporary (but they might last month or even years).

  • Website (CMS e-commerce …)
  • Warehouse (new WMS)
  • Point-of-sale (pos hardware + many improvement)

Some important tasks currently in the pipe, (you may ask me any question about then but please test it first on runbot)

  • as powerful as SAP (we can now do every SAP use cases)

trunk-apiculture (ETA 3month)

  • new api (new fields, no list of ids anymore, no more cr,uid,ids)
  • onchange fixed

What is the vision of OpenERP about integration and externalization of features?

I know that there is common complaint about openerp NIH syndrome, but i think we were mostly right. But first let me share a 4 beliefs i have (and that i mostly share with Fabien) on which those decisions are taken. Those beliefs are not fixed (as i often change my mind, and he does too).

1. Value of integration in a software system

I don’t consider here simple isolated tools but software system where different components and features are available.

Like Metcalfe’s law i’d like to state the Lesuisse law1 (as i might state future laws saying that:

“the value of a software system is proportional to number of connected apps to the power of the level of integration”

Illustrated by a few software system that i love:

The classical unix toolset, a powerful system combining a lot of commands, but they are loosely integrated (only by unidirectional streams of bytes).

Debian distribution, huge number of apps, integration level varies among the different packages.

Integrated suite of software like Microsoft Office, Adobe suite, the number of apps is less but the integration level is higher.

I also like software where everything is provided inside and works out of the box in the functional perimeter, let’s call them kitchen-sink software. (i cannot use emacs as an example because i don’t know emacs). For example Blender, facebook, chrome, Ableton live…

Ableton Live is good example, before Live we used to spend our time downloading VSTi and VST effects, using different software for midi sequencing, sample tracking, instruments with different ui and many windows open. Live changed the game, everything is integrated and uses the same ui-control you can use midi generated parts, sampled parts, drum-kits and effects in seamless way.

I also like when software is generic or multi solution like:

linux – all architecture from embedded to NUMA top 500 computers, every driver
for every device in one source repository.
ffmpeg – all video and audio codec in a single codebase.
mess/mame – all emulators for every computing device ever made.
qemu – cpu translator/emulator for every combination and cpu src and cpu dest.

And of course ERP systems.

2. Internal integration vs. Heterogeneous integration

You may notice that some great programmers (fabrice bellard, john carmack, linux torvalds… there are many more) like to keep dependency list small. You may say they suffer from the NIH syndrome, but from their perspective it might make a lot of sense.

But first i would like to make a distinction between two ways of integration:

Internal integration is when you call a linked library or you copy code, ideas or patterns from an other system. They run in the same memory space communication is done by function calls using the same datamodels and types and they don’t run asynchronously. You keep them under your executive control and make them abide your rules, design and architecture.

Heterogeneous integration happens when you interface an other system using a different platform, framework, datamodel or type system, when it’s located on an other computer or simply in an other process on the same machine. Example microkernels vs kernels.

And this is hard, achievable but very hard, so the cost of such integration has to be balanced against internal integration even if it means duplication.

Especially when the protocols are complex. UDDI WSDL SOAP those three acronyms should suffice to inspire feeling of fear, revulsion and hate to any sane developer.

We also have to consider the user experience, a visible switch from one to system to an other is always a painful experience for a user.

We try to balance those aspect when we take a decision. I also think that duplication is not that bad, and that nothing in itself is complex (even advanced tools), usually it’s the integration of those things that are complex. For example i’ve heard that john carmack always start his projects from scratch.

There are exception of course, things can be easier with HTTP and JSON as a common protocol and data type system. Sometimes we are forced to do it like rpc between the browser and server, or between postgresql and openerp.

Heterogeneous integration modules were always low quality because it requires a lot of work: webdav, document_ftp, caldav, import_sugarcrm, auth_openid, event_moodle… so we like to keep a minimum of it.

I also hate unnecessary dependencies, in practical terms i like to limit the dependencies the python libraries available in the latest Debian edition. We include some js libraries but i like to keep those as minimal as possible too.

3. KISS

4. Only fools and dead men don’t change their minds.

The strategy of openerp is to provide efficiently the best integrated business application system, both for its end users and developers.

New Intercompany Process Module

ShareThis !
January 22, 2014 10:39 AM
Elico Corp

Based on the new OpenERP connector, Elico Corp has created a new set of modules that makes Intercompany Process (ICOPS) ready in minutes.

What is Intercompany Process?

It is the possibility to automatically create objects from one company (Origin) into another one (destination). Main intercompany process operations involve SO, PO, stock moves and invoicing.

In multi-company environment, a SO to a sister company needs to be reflected in a PO in that company: the objective of these modules is to make transparent the creation of the necessary duplicated documents.

You can  have a look at the following blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/multi-company/+spec/icops

What do you need to get started:

  • Multi-company products, visible in all the companies involved in the process
  • 2 companies: one origin and one destination
  • 2 backends linked to each company involved in the communication
  • one user in each company able to perform the actions (to be setup in the backends).
  • Setup the back end to perform the requested action, depending on the events.

Necessary Modules:

  • Standard OpenERP Modules
  • openerp-connector modules (http://openerp-connector.com/)
  • base_intercompany: this is the main module with all generic methods, adapters, mappings etc.
  • base_intercompany_sale: this is the module for sales/purchases intercompany process
  • base_intercompany_stock (planned): this is the module for stock intercompany process
  • base_intercompany_invoicing (planned): this is the module for invoicing intercompany process

How to test it?

  1. Create a demo database
  2. Install the module base_intercompany_sale
  3. Go to connector/ backend and create the setup in Backend Origin (eg PO to SO: create, update, delete and confirm)
  4. Connect to Origin company
  5. Create a PO to the Destination company with products and save it
  6. Connect to Destination company
  7. Check that a SO has been created

Here are the current working patterns:

  • SO 2 SO: a Sales Order created in company A will automatically create a Sales Order in company B
  • DO 2 DO: a Delivery Order created in company A will automatically create a Delivery Order in company B (subcase of SO to SO)
  • SO 2 PO: a Sales Order created in company A will automatically create a Purchase Order in company B
  • PO 2 SO: a Purchase Order created in company A will automatically create a Salews Order in company B

Patterns planned in the future (community contribution accepted!):

  • PO 2 PO: a Purchase Order created in company A will automatically create a Purchase Order in company B
  • IS 2 IS: an Incoming Shipment created in company A will automatically create an Incoming Shipment in company B (subcase of PO to PO)
  • DO 2 IS: a Delivery Order created in company A will automatically create an Incoming Shipment  in company B
  • IS 2 DO: an Incoming Shipment created in company A will automatically create a Delivery Order in company B
  • CI 2 SI: a Customer Invoice created in company A will automatically create a Supplier Voucher in company B
  • SI 2 CI: a Supplier Voucher created in company A will automatically create a Customer Invoice in company B

You can configure the following events to perform an action in the destination company:

  • Creation of objects
  • Update of the objects
  • Deletion of the objects
  • Cancel (equivalent to press button Cancel)
  • Confirm (equivalent to press button Confirm or Validate)

The functionality has been built on the openerp-connector  and provide the following features:

  • Possibility to enqueue all jobs
  • Queue Error management
  • By default no delay is setup in current module (no job queue)

Notes:

  • Patterns are generic and behaviors are transitive: you can have multiple company involved with several cascade up and down.
  • You can setup complex rules such as creating the object in one company and confirmation in the other.
    • Company Origin (to Destination): SO2PO (Create, update, delete but no confirm)
    • Company Destination (to Origin): PO2SO (only confirm)
  • A video will be soon posted

You may be aware of it: OpenERP R&D team presented, on the last community days, the analysis on what should be the next Warehouse Management System of OpenERP. This is now time for testers to help them.

Indeed, developments are almost done and ready to be merged in trunk but before doing so, OpenERP would like to get as much feedback as possible. So, if you’re willing to help -or if you have any interest in seeing what will the next WMS look like and doing so you spot things that needs improvements- don’t hesitate to:

We’d be glad to collect any feedback on any lack*, usability problem, traceback encountered, improvement suggestion… by sending a mail to qdp@openerp.com

Thanks in advance for your contribution,

Akretion is indeed a strategic gold partner of OpenERP since 2012, official partner since 2009 and has built a very unique expertise with Magento OpenERP connector since 2008 with probably the largest number of Magento OpenERP SMB customers around! It’s also worth mentioning that Akretion is the official Certified Training center of OpenERP in Brazil since 2011 after we succesfully introduced OpenERP to that market so this kind of training partnership with OpenERP SA was natural for us.



Seven students from all over the world (Wisconsins, Florida, Dominican Republic, Philipins) came to learn a lot about the connector!




The training gave the students all the practical details to implement the brand new OpenERP v7 / Magento v1.7 connector released in november 2013 and featuring the new job queue framework for OpenERP designed by Camptocamp.


In addition to the specific content of the connection between OpenERP and Magento, the students learned a lots of e-commerce features. Indeed, the training covers also the e-banking, bank statement reconciliation, management of delivery time and carriers, the logistic center integration and the shipping label printing. Further information on the content of the training here.


Other OpenERP-Magento training sessions will soon be scheduled in France so don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.

SEPA support in OpenERP by Akretion

ShareThis !
January 01, 2014 5:30 AM
Akretion

 

The Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) is an initiative of the European Union to simplify bank transfers in Euro currency and reduce delays. The 28 countries of the European Union (plus 5 others) are part of SEPA. So far, the main changes introduced by SEPA impacted the technical mechanisms of money transfers between banks. But the next milestone in the SEPA calendar impacts the data exchange between companies and their banks : starting from February 1st 2014, companies will not be allowed to use the old national file format any more, only the new SEPA file format will be accepted by banks.


This new SEPA file format is based on the ISO 20022 standard and is XML-based. As a consequence, the companies that use files to send credit transfer orders or direct debit orders to their banks must make sure that their accounting software is able to generate SEPA XML files.


Thanks for the work of Akretion in coordination with the OpenERP community, OpenERP is able to generate SEPA XML files for credit transfers and direct debits. The implementation of SEPA made by Akretion follows the guidelines of the European Payment Council, which federate the european banking industry and publish guidelines and rulebooks to use the ISO 20022 standard for SEPA. The OpenERP modules developed by Akretion are part of the banking addons, which is project managed by the OpenERP Community Association :

  • the module account_banking_sepa_credit_transfer adds support for SEPA Credit Transfers (SCT),

  • the module account_banking_sepa_direct_debit adds support for SEPA Direct Debits (SDD) including the management of direct debit mandates.

The latest version of these modules for OpenERP 7.0 are available in the following branch : lp:~akretion-team/banking-addons/70-sepa-trf-dd-updates

Backports for some older versions of OpenERP are already available.


Once theses modules are installed, OpenERP will be able to generate a SEPA XML file from a payment order and from a direct debit order. The SEPA files generated by OpenERP have already been used by several EU companies with many different banks for real-life credit transfers and direct debit transactions.


Akretion France is available to help you add SEPA support to your OpenERP system and carry out the required tests with your banks. Akretion would like to thank all the OpenERP integrators who subcontracted SEPA development and testing to Akretion ; this has been a great help in the implementation of SEPA for OpenERP.


About Akretion

Akretion is an OpenERP-expert company based in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo) and France (Lyon) with a strong experience in e-commerce projects.

NaN-tic

On November 24th I had the pleasure to explain our experience in the creation and development of our company at Tecnocampus de Mataró in the production and operations course, invited by Diego Bartolomé from tauyou.

It was an encouraging experience which I hope I can repeat in the future. We must also thank the collaboration of Alex from Planetronic who answered the questions of some students who made an excellent work studying NaN·tic's case. By the way, you can watch their presentation here.

There, I also met Alex Araujo who recorded and edited the talk and a small interview (in Catalan) that you can see below (announcement here). Also you can see the original video that was streamed live!
