How to Upgrade Odoo Community Database to Enterprise

Technical Odoo 12

It's a quite easy process to upgrade the Odoo community edition database into the Odoo enterprise edition database. First of all what you have to do is,  buy an enterprise edition license so that you get acquainted with essential enterprise modules.

Once you have bought the license, you can place the enterprise add-ons and where you are keeping the add-ons, there mention the path in the add-ons path of the Odoo configuration file.

Once you have added this path to Odoo configuration file, restart your Odoo service and navigate to Odoo user interface. Later, activate the developer mode and click on the updated app list menu under the menu Apps.

You have to update the Apps list to get the modules from the newly added enterprise add-ons folder. Once you update the app list, search for the module named web_enterprise and install it. Now you can see that the Odoo CE UI is changed to the Odoo EE user interface.

Now let us go through the above steps with an example case:
