Magento is a good platform for front end of your web shop and Open ERP acts as a perfect back office application supporting all the business processes required by a company.

Connector Features  

  1. Product catalog export from OpenERP to Magento
  2. Product stocks updates, based on OpenERP virtual stocks (number of products in the physical stock that have not been reserved yet)
  3. Product Category tree export, including creation and update
  4. Sale orders imports from Magento to OpenERP

Requiremets and Step

To enable open ERP to access the resources in magento and synchronize, it is necessary to have a web services user. To create a web services user go to : System >> Web Service >>Roles

Create a new role e.g. ‘admin

Save the user and set resources access as: ALL 

Save the role and now create a web services user at: System >> Web Services >> Users 

Create a user, save the user and set the assigned role as the newly created role, in the above example ‘admin

The same settings have to be entered as credentials in the connector frontend in Open ERP at Magento >> Magento Web
