How to run SaaS

Getting started

Choose one of the installation options under the Usage section and then you can play with SaaS.


Creating database via backend as admin:

  • Login to SaaS Portal.
  • Open SaaS >> Plan
  • Select a Plan
  • Click [Log in to template DB]
  • Click on shown link to log in to template database
  • At template database make some adjustments, e.g. install Point Of Sale module
  • Now return back to the Plan and click [Create Client]
  • You got a new database! You can click [Log in] to check it - it must have all adjustments you made in template database.

Creating database via frontend as client:

  • Log out from SaaS Portal (or simply open Incognito window)
  • At SaaS Portal open page /page/start?plan_id=1
  • Choose subdomain name (note that at runbot you can use only names, that starts with the same prefix as Portal, e.g. 05851-10-0-7629a4--base---your-database-name-here
  • Click [Create!]
  • System asks you to log in - click Sign Up instead.
  • After signing up you new database will be created and you will be redirected to New Database.

For further information see SaaS Documentation.

Option 1: Runbot

Click the button below and use admin admin login and password. Note that runbot is a public service and there could be another people who use the system.

Try on Runbot

Option 2: Docker installation

First of all you need to install docker engine.

Install docker engine

Once you have docker engine execute commands below

docker network create odoo-saas

docker run \
-d \
--network=odoo-saas \
--name db-saas  \

docker run \
-d \
--name odoo \
--network=odoo-saas \
-e DB_PORT_5432_TCP_ADDR=db-saas \
-t itprojectsllc/install-odoo:10.0

docker exec \
 -u root \
 -t odoo \
sed -i 's/dbfilter.*/dbfilter = ^%d$/' /mnt/config/odoo-server.conf

docker restart odoo

# before executing this stop nginx or apache if you have one
docker run  \
-d \
-p 80:80 \
--name saas-nginx \
--network=odoo-saas \
-t itprojectsllc/docker-odoo-nginx

--portal-create \
--server-create \
--plan-create \
--odoo-script=/mnt/odoo-source/odoo-bin \
--odoo-config=/mnt/config/odoo-server.conf \
--portal-db-name=portal \
--server-db-name=server-1 \
--server-hosts-template={dbname}.{base_saas_domain_1} \
--plan-template-db-name=template-1 \
--plan-clients=demo-%i \
' && docker exec -u root -t odoo /bin/bash \

If you made above on your server, then you need to prepare DNS with wildcard, e.g.


If you made a local installation on your computer, then update your hosts file by executing command below. It allows to use url

sudo echo && INIT_SAAS_TOOLS_VALUE=' \
--print-local-hosts \
--odoo-script=/mnt/odoo-source/odoo-bin \
--odoo-config=/mnt/config/odoo-server.conf \ \
--portal-db-name=portal.{suffix} \
--server-db-name=server-1.{suffix} \
--plan-template-db-name=template-1.{suffix} \
' && sudo bash -c "docker exec -u odoo -t odoo bash -c \"python /mnt/addons/it-projects-llc/odoo-saas-tools/ ${INIT_SAAS_TOOLS_VALUE}\" >> /etc/hosts"


Now you have SaaS available. Open corresponding url prefixed with portal, e.g. http://portal.saas.YOUR-DOMAIN.EXAMPLE.COM or

Option 3: AWS AMI installation

The option is comming soon...
