../../../_images/github-authorize.png basically needs:

  • to know your Github login and email,

  • to create a new repository in case you decide to start from scratch,

  • to read your existing repositories, including the ones of your organizations, in case you want to start from an existing repository,

  • to create a webhook to be notified each time you push changes,

  • to commit changes to make your deployment easier, merging branches or adding new submodules for example.

Submit your project

Choose if you want to start from scratch by creating a new repository, or if you want to use an existing repository.

Then, choose a name or select the repository you want to use.

Choose the Odoo version you want to use. If you plan to import an existing database or an existing set of applications, you might need to choose the according version. If you start from scratch, use the latest version.

Enter your subscription code. This is also called subscription referral, contract number or activation code.

It should be the code of your Enterprise subscription that includes

Partners can use their partnership codes to start a trial. Should their clients start a project, they ought to get an Enterprise subscription including and use its subscription code. The partner will get the full amount as back commission. Contact your sales representative or account manager in order to get it.

When submitting the form, if you are notified your subscription is not valid, it either means:

  • it is not an existing subscription,

  • it is not a partnership subscription,

  • it is an enterprise subscription, but which does not include,

  • it is neither a partnership subscription or an enterprise subscription (e.g. an online subscription).

In case of doubt with your subscription, please contact the Odoo support.


You’re done !

You can start using Your first build is about to be created. You will soon be able to connect to your first database.


Import your database

You can import your database in your project as long as it is in a supported version of Odoo.

Push your modules in production

If you use community or custom modules, add them in a branch in your Github repository. Databases hosted on the online platform do not have any custom modules. Users of these databases can therefore skip this step.

You can structure your modules as you wish, will automatically detect the folders containing Odoo addons. For instance, you can put all your modules folder in the root directory of your repository, or group the modules in folders by categories that you define (accounting, project, …).

For community modules available in public Git repositories, you can also consider to add them using Submodules.

Then, either make this branch the production branch, or merge it into your production branch.

Download a backup

On-premise databases

Access the URL /web/database/manager of your on-premise database and download a backup.


If you cannot access the database manager, it may have been disabled by your system administrator. See the database manager security documentation.

You will need the master password of your database server. If you do not have it, contact your system administrator.


Choose a zip including the filestore as the backup format.


Odoo Online databases

Access your databases manager and download a backup of your database.



Saas releases (e.g. saas-*) are not supported on

Upload the backup

Then, in your project, in the backups tab of your production branch, import the backup you just downloaded.


Once the backup imported, you can access the database using the Connect button in the history of the branch.


Check your outgoing email servers

There is a default mail server provided with To use it, there must be no enabled outgoing mail server configured in your database in Settings ‣ Technical ‣ Outgoing Mail Servers (Developer mode must be activated).

After the import of your database, all outgoing email servers are disabled so you use the email server provided by default.


Port 25 is (and will stay) closed. If you want to connect to an external SMTP server, you should use ports 465 and 587.

Check your scheduled actions

All scheduled actions are disabled after the import.

This is to prevent your newly imported database to perform actions that could impact your running production, such as sending the mails remaining in the queue, processing mass mailings, or third-party services synchronization (Calendars, files hosting, …).

If you plan to make the imported database your production, enable the scheduled actions you need. You can check what is enabled in the database of origin and enable the same actions in the imported database. Scheduled actions are located under Settings ‣ Technical ‣ Automation ‣ Scheduled Actions.

Register your subscription

Your subscription is unlinked after the import.

The imported database is considered a duplicate by default and the enterprise subscription is therefore removed, as you can only have one database linked per subscription.

If you plan to make it your production, unlink your former database from the subscription, and register the newly imported database. Read the database registration documentation for instructions.
