After setting up the openerp system, How do i clear testing entries in all forms in openerp 7 before final deployment? Or Is there a seperate testing methodology to test openerp 7. Thanks a lot

ya, i understand Mr.User 12569. Creating a new database will help out. But when creating a new database, we had to be doing all access rights, user list, master details, menu arrangement etc. Isn't there a way to start test transaction and do all kind of testing and finally when said testing is over the transactions have to rollback.

I would create a different database. There is information that can not be deleted, such as invoices or accounting entries. What you can do is cancel those entries, set the financial accounts balance to the amount they need to be set to, and start working with that information.

Thanks for your answer. I've updated my ques. Please have a look at it.

The right approach to this is to work with several databases:

  1. a production database where you do the configuration "for real"
  2. a test database, which you create by copying the production database, where you experiment and record test transactions, and that you can delete when you're done testing.

If you make developments, you'll probably need a test instance of the code too.
