All of your Odoo tables replicated or transformed with ETL, wherever you need it

Odoo apps integrate perfectly with each other. But how do you manage repeatable and scalable integration and monitoring of data out of Odoo?

While Odoo’s system of apps can replace a combination of solutions from different vendors, you’ll inevitably still need to get data out of Odoo apps to your data ecosystem via ETL. Now you can replicate all of your data in Odoo anywhere you need using Nexla, or customize with powerful transforms.

All the dataflows you might need involving any Odoo app can be built using Nexla’s powerful low-code capabilities. . Nexla’s automatic schema detection recognizes any custom fields in any data model in Odoo, enabling a streamlined process to build data flows so you can focus on the dataset you need — not wrangling data and schema.

Read on to see one example of how Nexla builds a flow from an Odoo table.

What You’ll Need

  • A Nexla account (Contact us for a free trial)

Nexla will now create a Nexset from what it finds in the source. This is a representation of your data as a product that is ready to be transformed, shared, or sent directly to destination. Nexla automatically detects and organizes schema behind the scenes, recognizing any custom fields in any Odoo data model.

3. (Optional) Apply Transformations

Replicate with one click by sending the detected Nexset directly to destination, or select the Transform button to apply any pre-built transformations, select your data slices, set validation rules, or even inject custom Python or Javascript code. Once you’re ready, click Save and we’ll send the transformed Nexset to destination.

4. Configure Data Destination

Send to Destination for Replication mode

Click Send to Destination and select the connector you need. From SaaS apps, data warehouses, APIs, and even streams and real-time webhooks, Nexla’s universal connectors make it possible to connect to anywhere your data might need to go. Configure your credentials, select the Odoo app, and click Save.

That’s it! Your ETL data flow will automatically begin, and Nexla will monitor your flow for any changes or errors. Make changes and edits on the fly and work with Odoo data models that are transformed, validated, and ready-to-use.

Wrap-Up

This straightforward process is infinitely repeatable in Nexla to ensure data users always have the up-to-date, ready-to-use data they need out of their Odoo apps. With Nexla, creating these custom data flows is easy and doesn’t require any technical expertise. Replicating directly to the destination is even easier.
