How to add a large number of variants without Odoo hanging.

on 1/22/16, 6:06 PM 748 views

This is a really fustrating problem. I have products with large number of variables. One of my products will have 6 properties with between 2 and 8 variables each. One of my products is at 1400 variants. That doesn't seem like that much. I need to add one more property with 4 variables so it should be a total of 5600 variants. Odoo has hung every time.

I'm currently running the community edition of 9 on virtualbox. The box has access to 2 cores (i5-4690k) and 4gb of memory.

Is there anything I can do to make this work?

There are 2 options:

- Increase the timeout so this action can complete.
- Create in a spreadsheet and import manually (preferred, but more complicated). You will find explanations on how to do this online.

I have a client that has approximately 100,000 variants but we had to import manually.
