How to update Company "Sales Pricelist" from database

I want to update all company pricelists from one to another in a batch, but I don't see anywhere in the database that stores the pricelist id for the company.

Where is this information stored? 


Hi Travis, by Database what do you mean?

Hello, by database, I mean the PostgreSQL database itself. My idea is to update them all with an update query from psql.

The Sales Pricelist's field name is actually property_product_pricelist, which indicates it is a field of type property (deprecated in v8).

Basically, the values for this field are not stored in the res_partner table as I expected.

Each record is stored in the ir.property table, as you can see if you view the database with the following query:

SELECT * FROM ir_property WHERE name = 'property_product_pricelist';

You can theoretically update the values by SQL commands, but I would recommend against it (maybe someone else has a good way of doing that safely?).

For some better understanding of property fields, check the following links:
