CData Sync



Replicate multiple Odoo accounts to one or many databases.

CData Sync for Odoo is a stand-alone application that provides solutions for a variety of replication scenarios such as replicating sandbox and production instances into your database. Both Sync for Windows and Sync for Java include a command-line interface (CLI) that makes it easy to manage multiple Odoo connections. In this article we show how to use the CLI to replicate multiple Odoo accounts.

Configure Odoo Connections

You can save connection and email notification settings in an XML configuration file. To replicate multiple Odoo accounts, use multiple configuration files. Below is an example configuration to replicate Odoo to SQLite:

Windows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>System.Data.SQLite</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>User=MyUser;Password=MyPassword;URL=http://MyOdooSite/;Database=MyDatabase;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> <TaskSchedulerStartTime>09:51</TaskSchedulerStartTime> <TaskSchedulerInterval>Never</TaskSchedulerInterval> </CDataSync>

Java

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>org.sqlite.JDBC</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>User=MyUser;Password=MyPassword;URL=http://MyOdooSite/;Database=MyDatabase;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> </CDataSync>

To connect, set the Url to a valid Odoo site, User and Password to the connection details of the user you are connecting with, and Database to the Odoo database.

Configure Queries for Each Odoo Instance

Sync enables you to control replication with standard SQL. The REPLICATE statement is a high-level command that caches and maintains a table in your database. You can define any SELECT query supported by the Odoo API. The statement below caches and incrementally updates a table of Odoo data:

REPLICATE res_users;

You can specify a file containing the replication queries you want to use to update a particular database. Separate replication statements with semicolons. The following options are useful if you are replicating multiple Odoo accounts into the same database:

You can use a different table prefix in the REPLICATE SELECT statement:

REPLICATE PROD_res_users SELECT * FROM res_users

Alternatively, you can use a different schema:

REPLICATE PROD.res_users SELECT * FROM res_users

Run Sync

After you have configured the connection strings and replication queries, you can run Sync with the following command-line options:

Windows

OdooSync.exe -g MyProductionOdooConfig.xml -f MyProductionOdooSync.sql

Java

java -Xbootclasspath/p:c:\sqlitejdbc.jar -jar OdooSync.jar -g MyProductionOdooConfig.xml -f MyProductionOdooSync.sql
