Re: Module for uploading multiple images/attachments to website

Hello Radovan,

If I got you right you are asking for a one-time import job for
migration, not for a front end based user friendly solution, right?

If that’s the case the best way to do it is using the python shell
interface for odoo and writing import scripts.

Usual way we do stuff like this is to dump data from the old system in
some structured way (access old DB, export to CSV/XML etc.) and read and
transform using python scripts.

Example for writing:
image_path = "/".join([self.image_base_path, path])
    with as image:
        buf = io.BytesIO(), format=image.format)
        b64_image = base64.b64encode(buf.getvalue())
        return b64_image, basename(image_path)
except FileNotFoundError as e:
        f"Could not import image {image_path}",


Attached is a simple script for reading.
It just reads an image from a custom model. Doesn’t make sence for your
case, but you can use this as a minimal starting example for the script
and combine with the above code.

If you use Odoo with buildout simply call:
`bin/python_odoo <> [your script arguments]`
to run it.

regards, Peter
