Dear Odoo contributors,

in our use cases its sometimes necessary to obfuscate business data
within Odoo databases (mainly for legal compliance). For migration
purposes as part of the Odoo core comes the "anonymization" module. 

​AFAIK you can add this to your backup scripting process with no issue.

Can you enlight us what can't you do?​

However, this module isn't that practical for automating the whole
process on large data sets. Therefore i am searching for something
handier than this (maybe pure SQL and a bit of Python). Is somebody
aware of an artifact doing exactly this or has there been attempt among
community members to develop such a thing OR is there something i might
have missed that renders my idea senseless ? 

Feedback on whatever scope (interest, recommendation, ideas) would be
highly appreciated

Kind regards
