Yes, its not possible to directly import by odoo user interface.

You must split it to make it works.


But it possible if you can write python script for xml-rpc.


Here is the video:

Directly to postgres


using xml-rpc


Here is odoo documentation:



Thank You.

Subject: mass importing partners. whats the best way?


Hi there,


I would like to import some 60'000 partners from a foreign (mysql) database.

I tried to import them from a csv file.

But this just seems next to impossible in one single lifetime ..


Now my questions:

what is the best way do do so?

I do not mind to write a python script to achieve this.

However I would be gratefull for a kind of sample on how to do it.
