    Thanks for the info. But only thing missing here is for the second part where irModuleObj can be used? In which class? “self” will not work like that everywhere?

      Hi, Bojan

      Here “irModuleObj” contains the instance of “ir.module.module”.
      irModuleObj = self.env[‘ir.module.module’]
