Overview

The settings allows you to manage the configuration of your project.

./media/interface-settings.png

Project name

The name of your project.

./media/interface-settings-projectname.png

This defines the address that will be used to access your production database.

Addresses of your staging and development builds are derived from this name and assigned automatically. However, when you change your project name, only future builds will use the new name.

Collaborators

Manage the Github users who can access your project.

./media/interface-settings-collaborators.png

There are two levels of users:

  • Admin: has access to all features of Odoo.sh.
  • User: does not have access to the project settings nor to the production and staging databases.

The user group is meant for developers who can make modifications in your code but are not allowed to access the production data. Users of this group cannot connect to the production and staging databases using the 1-click connect feature, but they can of course use their regular account on these databases if they have one, using their regular credentials.

In addition, they cannot use the webshell nor have access to the server logs.

Public Access

Allow public access to your development builds.

./media/interface-settings-public.png

If activated, this option exposes the Builds page publicly, allowing visitors to connect to your development builds.

In addition, visitors have access to the logs, shell and mails of your development builds.

Production and staging builds are excluded, visitors can only see their status.

Modules installation

Choose the modules to install automatically for your development builds.

./media/interface-settings-modulesinstallation.png
  • Install only my modules will install the modules of the branch only. The :ref:`submodules <odoosh-advanced-submodules>` are excluded.
  • Full installation (all modules) will install the modules of the branch, the modules included in the submodules and all standard modules of Odoo.
  • Install a list of modules will install the modules specified in the input just below this option. The names are the technical name of the modules, and they must be comma-separated.

All installed modules will be tested. The tests in the standard Odoo modules suite can take up to 1 hour. This setting applies to development builds only. Staging builds duplicate the production build and the production build only installs base.

Custom domains

Configure your own domain name.

./media/interface-settings-customdomains.png

If you would like to access your production database using your own domain name, you have to:

  • own or purchase the domain name,
  • add the domain name in this list,
  • in your registrar's domain name manager, configure the domain name with a CNAME record set to your production database domain name.

For instance, to associate www.mycompany.com to your database mycompany.odoo.com:

  • in Odoo.sh, add www.mycompany.com in the custom domains of your project settings,
  • in your domain name manager (e.g. godaddy.com, gandi.net, ovh.com), configure www.mycompany.com with a CNAME record with as value mycompany.odoo.com.

Bare domains (e.g. mycompany.com) are not accepted:

  • they can only be configured using A records,
  • A records only accept IP addresses as value,
  • the IP address of your database can change, following an upgrade, a hardware failure or your wish to host your database in another country or continent.

Therefore, bare domains could suddenly no longer work because of this change of IP address.

In addition, if you would like both mycompany.com and www.mycompany.com to work with your database, having the first redirecting to the second is amongst the SEO best practices (See Provide one version of a URL to reach a document) in order to have one dominant URL. You can therefore just configure mycompany.com to redirect to www.mycompany.com. Most domain managers have the feature to configure this redirection. This is commonly called a web redirection.

HTTPS/SSL

You can use a third-party CDN such as Cloudflare.com to enable the HTTPS support for your custom domain:

SPF and DKIM compliance

In case the domain of your users email address uses SPF (Sender Policy Framework) or DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) to increase the deliverability of your outgoing emails, don't forget to authorize Odoo as a sending host in your domain name settings. The configuration steps are explained in the :ref:`Discuss app documentation <discuss-email_servers-spf-compliant>`.

Warning

Forgetting to configure your SPF or DKIM to authorize Odoo as a sending host can lead to the delivery of your emails as spam in your contacts inbox.

Submodules

Configure the deploy keys for the private repositories you use as submodules in your branches to allow Odoo.sh to download them.

Warning

These settings are required for private repositories only. If you are looking on how to set up your submodules, instructions are available in the chapter :ref:`Submodules <odoosh-advanced-submodules>` of this documentation.

./media/interface-settings-submodules.png

When a repository is private, this is not possible to publicly download its branches and revisions. For that reason, you need to configure a deploy key for Odoo.sh, so the remote Git server allows our platform to download the revisions of this private repository.

To configure the deploy key for a private repository, proceed as follow:

Storage Size

This section shows a small description of the storage size used by your project.

./media/interface-settings-storage.png

If your production database exceeds 4 GB, you will automatically be billed on the subscription activating the project with the excess size.

Database Workers

Additional database workers can be configured here. More workers help increase the load your production database is able to handle.

./media/interface-settings-workers.png

Warning

Adding more workers will not magically solve all performance issues. It mainly allows the server to handle more connections at the same time.

Staging Branches

Additional staging branches allow you to develop and test more features at the same time.

./media/interface-settings-staging-branches.png

Odoo Source Code

Lists the source code's revisions of your production database. Useful if you need to know if a recent bugfix has already been deployed or not.

./media/interface-settings-source-code.png

Activation

Shows the status of the project's activation. You can change the project's activation code if needed.
