Hello, I would be interested to know how to work the following fields: fields.serialized

By chance I saw that were used in the product_custom_attributes module in lp:openerp-product-attributes and I am intrigued.

Best Regards

I never used those two fields or never seen them in addons.

fields.serialized: Serialized field is used to store data in a field in a json dump

fields.sparse: Sparse field uses a serialized field to store a field in the json dump instead of a normal database column.

I don't know much about them.

There is an addon from de OCA that restores the serialized fields. base_field_serialized. Just in case you've got an error regarding these serialized fields.
