How to Remove the "manage databases" link from the login page?



I want to remove manage databases link from login page as shown in screen print page:

I was going to extend the view and edit it but I found this if condition:

<div class="text-center small mt-4 pt-3 border-top" t-if="not disable_footer">
 <t t-if="not disable_database_manager">
 <a class="border-right pr-2 mr-1" href="/web/database/manager">Manage Databases</a>
 <a href="//;utm_medium=auth" target="_blank">Powered by <span>Odoo</span></a>

so is there any easier way to remove the link

The OpenERP files (server, addons, web) should never be edited. You should always prefer to do your modifications in a custom addon.

You can do this change by creating a custom addon and replacing the part of the UI you don't want.

Usual addons are installed on a database basis. Removing the Manage database link is global to an installation, so you'll need to start your server with the name of your module in the --load option.

./openerp-server --load=web,your_module

Your module should also be auto-installable, use the key auto_install in the of your module:

'auto_install': True,

To remove the Manage database, you'll need to create a file static/src/xml/base.xml:

 <!-- Templates modified at the web start, before loading of a database. -->
 <!-- Remove the Manage database link, but keep the Powered by OpenERP-->
 <t t-extend="Login">
 <t t-jquery="div.oe_login_footer" t-operation="replace">
 <div class="oe_login_footer">
 <a href="//" target="_blank">Powered by <span>OpenERP</span></a>

Then you need to load the file in

'qweb' : [

You can edit the logo or other elements interface too. You can refer to the file addons/web/static/src/xml/base.xml in openerp-web to see the base templates.

The templates use the QWeb syntax: QWeb documentation

To remove "Manage databases" link you can add "list_db = False"  inside your Odoo config file (Generally present inside /etc/odoo.conf ).

Or if you are running Odoo through the command line then "-no-database-list" helps to achieve this part, you can use the below command to remove the "Manage Database" link

/opt/odoo/odoo-bin --no-database-list
