Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I am using odoo-7 since 4 monts on wards. I have sales, purchases, and bank transactions which are there in draft, confirmed, validated statments. I have developed some custom modules that fits to my customer requirements. I want to move this data to odoo-8. How can i proceed for this?. Exporting and importing data easy. But we have to make clone of the odoo-7 to odoo-8, does it possible with this approach is my question?. I hope upgrading from odoo-7 to odoo-8 done by odoo organization. Does this upgrade process allows our coustomized modules?.
I have done it by working with SQL directly. It only takes a few minutes to create a fresh clean database with all the same modules (if they exist for v8). It took me a couple of days to write a very large SQL script. Then it took me another day to test and fix the remaining errors.
It went like this:
- Install all the modules on v8
- Import v7 database to a different schema (call it v7)
- Compare a list of tables between versions
- Compare a list of columns between tables
- Insert into new schema by selecting from old schema
- In most cases, I copied the id and then updated the sequence
- Most of my records could be uniquely identified by the name field, so I used that for mapping where necessary
The mail and messaging stuff was the hardest part to get right.
This people developed an ETL tool over Odoo, It seems very interesting and easy to use:
