Mastering Odoo 9 Development - 9. Understanding the Odoo API
Section 9: In this video we examine the primary ways to connect Odoo with other applications, import data, and access the models within Odoo remotely. You will learn how to use XML-RPC to search, write, and update data within Odoo's models.
Mastering Essential Odoo Development Skills
While using Odoo's can be useful to import some simple data sets it has extreme limitations. First off, data coming from other systems is rarely organized in the same way as Odoo organizes data within the framework. Even just importing a simple customer list can be a challenge through standard CSV. A best case scenario is that you modify data extensively before importation so that it fits Odoo's structure. Fortunately there is a better way.
In this video we explore Odoo's powerful API to integrate Odoo with other systems and specifically to import or update data within Odoo. Using XML-RPC you can use the API to translate and automate the importing of your data. In this video we even demonstrate how you can sync the data so that you can run your update routines over and over, changing only the data you wish to have changed.
