[v8] how can I check to which database I have logged in to from inside the web interface?

some people might have a second database to do tests in.

Especially the fact that your Sessions in 8.0 never end (not even by shutdown of your server) if you have not specifically logged out it can easily happen you do some work in in the wron database. So sometime is could be helpfull to assure yourselft which database you have acctually looked in to from inside of the web interface ... any way to do that?

  • from url, "db" parameter is available after you choose database, something like this


  • activate "developer mode", on the user menu (upper right), the current database is appended after user name

URL method is not 100% reliable. I got URL's like this at times Developer mode method works, even though I don't find it ideal

I agree, that the url method is not reliable. I think it's not necessary to show db parameter in url. I don't know why Odoo choose this method.
