Where is my data stored when using Odoo?

  • Odoo on premise stores data in a PostgreSQL database - access depends on your Database Administrator - ask them!
  • Odoo online (aka SAAS) stores data in a PostgreSQL database - it is protected from access and not available.

Can I access it offline?

  • No.  You can take a backup and import it into another Odoo server, but there is no other access.

Except for the POS which is accessible in a disconnected mode. You need to be connected to your server when opening and closing your session, but not in between.
