Authenticating to an Odoo Server
The Odoo Connector uses OAuth2 authentication process.
You may authenticate to an Odoo server:
  • from the page menu

    If you do not have an active session for the Odoo server, the authentication process will open a log-in screen for the Odoo server. Enter all information and click Log in.
  4. 4.
    In case of a successful login, the process re-directs the user to the original page.
    In case you have an active session for the Odoo server (you are logged in), the log-in screen for the Odoo server won't pop-up but the connector authenticates you automatically.
