Project description

Beta License: LGPL-3 OCA/edi Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

Allow exchange files using storage backends from OCA/storage.

This module adds a storage backend relation on the EDI backend. There you can configure the backend to be used (most often and SFTP) and the paths where to read or put files.

Often the convention when exchanging files via SFTP is to have one input forder (to receive files) and an output folder (to send files).

Inside this folder you have this hierarchy:

input/output folder
    |- pending
    |- done
    |- error
  • pending folder contains files that have been just sent

  • done folder contains files that have been processes successfully

  • error folder contains files with errors and cannot be processed

The storage handlers take care of reading files and putting files in/from the right place and update exchange records data accordingly.

Go to “EDI -> EDI backend” then configure your backend to use a storage backend.
