Any way to track changes/customizations?

on 8/26/15, 6:22 AM 906 views

Hi all,

Now that I'm getting more comfortable with Odoo, I start to make some more ambitious customization (and more dangerous errors... :-( ) Still no programming.

I wonder if there is any way to keep track of all my changes, in order to be able to rollback if necessary. Ideally, from the user interface. At least from logs.

Actually my dream would be to keep all the changes (customization) I do from the technical user interface within a git-like repository and be able to merge/unmerge the changes.

Thx a lot

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

You could start by making backups or database duplication in order to save the state of your modules before making some changes

Sure, backup, etc. is just necessary and mendatory. It is just rather unpractical and takes a lot of time.

When I develop (not in odoo, in other languages/technologies), I do backup of my dev environments as well. But I simply do not imagine to use copies/backup only to manage changes in my code. VCS tools are the only way (e.g. SVN, Git, etc.), Backups are just in case of big hw/os pb, not a way to manage developments.

-> I asked the question as we can do much customization from Odoo itself. Hence I'd like to know if there is way to manage those customizations.

You mention that you Still are not programming.

Also you could start using docker images to make all that you need versioned in a git-like environment, even the database if you wanna do it
