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.

Table of contents


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 server_wide_modules parameter in /etc/odoo.conf or with the --load command-line parameter

server_wide_modules = "web, 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]

And make sure that proxy mode is enabled in Odoo’s configuration file:

proxy_mode = True


To use this module, you need to complete installation and configuration parts.
