Because of security control purpose, it is unsafe to publish the whole database management option to public. Hence, I would suggest to change the database management screen from original screen as below Diagram 1 to Diagram 2. To achieve it, you only need to edit the “base.xml” file under …/addons/web/static/src/xml directory as below steps.

Diagram 1manage-db1

Diagram 2manage-db2


Step 1:

#cd /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/openerp-8.0_c7d8e97-py2.7.egg/openerp/addons/web/static/src/xml

Step 2:

#vi base.xml

Step 3:

Find the section of <form id =”db_create” … until  … </form>  as below and delete those content:

<form id=”db_create” name=”create_db_form” style=”display: block;”>

<div class=”oe_view_manager oe_view_manager_current”>



And then find the sections of  <form id =”db_drop”… </form>, <form id =”db_restore”… </form>, and <form id =”db_change_password”… </form>, and delete all of them.

Step 4:

Find the following and delete the crossed option:

<t t-name=””>

<div class=”oe_secondary_menu_section”>Database Management</div>

<ul class=”oe_secondary_submenu nav nav-pills nav-stacked”>

<li><a href=”#db_create”>Create</a></li>

<li><a href=”#db_duplicate”>Duplicate</a></li>

 <li><a href=”#db_drop”>Drop</a></li>

<li><a href=”#db_backup”>Backup</a></li>

<li><a href=”#db_restore”>Restore</a></li>

<li><a href=”#db_change_password”>Password</a></li>



Hope It is Useful to You.
