Import/export users/partners data

Hi everyone

I'm trying to export my odoo's user data... but I can't do it...

When I do the exportation, I've try to export all the data using the "Database Id" but when I try to import them again, I can't because I don't have the option "Database Id" in the options to import.

So, I also try to export the data using the "External Id", but, the relative Ids doesn't match, and It's imposibble to do it.

Also, I've try to export/import all the information from Settings > Sequences & Identifiers > External Identifiers because I thought it could be related, but It doesn't

So, What am I doing wrong??

Is there any chance to do a full exportation from the user-partner's information from my actual odoo to another??

But I don't want to interact with the db directly...

I would like to use the import/export tool that odoo provides...

And also, I can't remove the external id collumn, because then, I'm going to generate new ids (non related with anything) and any of my other relations are going to match...

What I need it's to be able to import all my data with the same id as they have in my other odoo... and I think that the only way to do that it's beeing able to import the database Id instead the external id

If you import the external id field, you will overwrite the data of your existent partners on the destination database, and if the external id doesn't exist, it will return an error.

I think you have to make the exportation from the origin database, remove the column external id from the csv file, and then make the importation on the destination database.
