Retrieve Odoo database name

When you start configuring a connection, you will be asked to define you database name. In odoo, each instance have a technical database name, it’s not necessarely the same as your company name or the URL of your instance.

In order to get it you have to connect on your odoo website, and then enable the debug mode by adding “?debug=1” between “/web” and the “#…” :

Once the page reloaded, just after your user name you will see the database name. On our sample it’s named demo.

TIP : The debug mode is usefull when you have to see a field name on a screen. On chrome you can install the Odoo debug plugin the will help you to change on the fly the URL with “?debug=1” when you click on it.
