Odoo 17 Development Book

Adding and Installing New Addons

We have Odoo network add-ons and agency add-ons if we use the agency edition. If we need to make any changes or include additional apps or modules, we will upload them to Odoo by placing them in a custom folder in the task directory. In the screenshot, an Odoo Apps module is introduced inside the task directory's custom_addons folder.


To use the new addon in Odoo, the absolute path to the new directory must be added to the addons path in the Odoo conf file.


We can use the terminal to replace the addons_path within the conf report on the server. If the conf report is located at /etc/odoo.conf, we can access it by running the command sudo nano /etc/odoo.conf and including the route to the custom addons. Assuming the custom addons are in /opt/odoo/custom, upload the route to addons_path within the conf report with the opposite addons.

E.g.: addons_path = /opt/odoo/addons, /opt/odoo/enterprise, /opt/odoo/custom

Open Apps and enable developer mode to install the recently introduced module. Certain new menus will be available within Apps after activating developer mode. Use the Update Apps List menu option to load the recently added Apps and modules.


To install the app/module, click the Activate button.


We can install our module and use its features by clicking the Activate button.
