Filter databases with HTTP headers

Project Description


This addon lets you pass a dbfilter as a HTTP header.

This is interesting for setups where database names can’t be mapped to proxied host names.


To install this module, you only need to add it to your addons, and load it as a server-wide module.

This can be done with the load parameter in /etc/odoo.conf or with the --load command-line parameter

load = "web, web_kanban, dbfilter_from_header"


Please keep in mind that the standard odoo dbfilter configuration is still applied before looking at the regular expression in the header.

  • For nginx, use:

    proxy_set_header X-Odoo-dbfilter [your filter regex];

  • For caddy, use:

    proxy_header X-Odoo-dbfilter [your filter regex]

  • For Apache, use:

    RequestHeader set X-Odoo-dbfilter [your filter regex]
