Dear Community, dear Odoo Team,

I wonder if someone has stumbled across the problem when doing an update of a database for minor changes with external_ids (noupdate=”0”) that modified content (views, etc.) within the database was overwritten without prompting or recognizing the change actively?


Of course this should be a more technical feature as sometimes changes interdepend on each other, but it would be a huge improvement of usability for administrators who really know what they do and can then decide about changes of data individually during a semi-manual process.

So they can do updates on database content (very important if you had a SaaS database in the first place or sometimes do quick changes for a customer in debug mode which are not documented instantly and later need to do minor updates on base, etc.) without losing customization directly in the database which is not my normal use case but might happen for quick changes on demand.


This would btw make Odoo SaaS even more attractive for all kind of users.


Please feel free to share your opinion on that and I would of course appreciate backers of this “idea” which is probably very common for normal content management and btw versions of the CMS pages to follow changes would be awesome too, but CMS is still very young in lifecycle compared to the data stuff issue/problem.
