Introduction

This addon allows to automatically move existing attachments to the file system.

Configuration

If it doesn't exist, the module creates a parameter ir_attachment.location with value file. This will make new attachments end up in your data path (the odoo configuration value data_dir) in a subdirectory called filestore.

Then it will create a cron job that does the actual transfer and schedule it for 01:42 at night in the installing user's time zone. The cronjob will do a maximum of 10000 conversions per run and is run every night. The limit is configurable with the parameter attachments_to_filesystem.limit.

After all attachments are migrated (the log will show then moving 0 attachments to filestore), you can disable or delete the cronjob.

If you need to run the migration synchronously during install, set the parameter attachments_to_filesystem.move_during_init before installing this addon.
