Default database with website module

on 4/8/16, 12:04 PM 1,228 views

Hi Dears,

I have 3 dbs on one instance. I want user that comes to site to see website not db selector, that means particular database should be chosen by default, and when he logins it should be possible to choose another one. How to configure it?

My motivation for learning different technologies and algos drive me. I love challenges of a steep learning curve which I believe makes me a better learner. I have a strong desire to learn different technologies, which would enable me to become a full stack developer.

Inside your etc/odoo-server-config you can define the dbfilter or db_name .

Fro example :

If you want to allow user to open only the database start with website then just put this code

dbfilter = website.*

it will allow user to open only the databse having name like website_db, website_1 etc

One more thing  you can also use db_name = my_db_name
this will allow your user to open a single db:my_db_name only

db_name = my_db_name

I hope this may help in your case .

If dbfilter is used you wont be able to use the filtered databases.
