Odoo Help


I want to modify CSV import for Products so I can provide images as URI's instead of Base64 strings.

My company would like to use the CSV import feature to upload new products in batches, but the fact that Odoo CSV stores the images as Base64 encoded strings makes it very impractical.

I'm wondering if I could modify the existing functionality to grab the images from the URLs or some internal server paths instead, but I don't know where to start with editing a built-in module as the CSV import is?
I'll appreciate any suggestion.

The import is handled in the base_import module. You will need to extend this module functionalities so you may modify the functionality.
