Silverfin is a third-party service provider that offers a cloud platform for accountants.
Odoo and Silverfin provide an integration to automate the synchronization of data.
To configure this integration, you need to input the following data into your Silverfin account:
user’s email address
URL of the Odoo database
name of your Odoo database
Odoo API key¶
These API keys are personal and provide full access to your user account. Store it securely.
You can copy the API key only at its creation. It is not possible to retrieve it later.
If you need it again, create a new API key (and delete the old one).
To add an API key to a single database, connect to the database, enable the developer mode, click on the user menu, and then My Profile / Preferences. Under the Account Security tab, click on New API Key, confirm your password, give a descriptive name to your new key, and copy the API key.
For all databases (fiduciaries)¶
To add an API key to all databases managed by a single user at the same time (the easiest method for fiduciaries), navigate to Odoo’s website and sign in with your administrator account. Next, open your account security settings in developer mode, click on New API Key, confirm your password, give a descriptive name to your new key, and copy the new API key.
Open the database manager to view all databases that will be linked to the single API key.
