odoo-test-14 instance has all the OCA modules available, they may not be installed permanently. If you want to ensure that a module is available for use in the long term, you’ll need to ask technical team to install it permanently.

Identify the technical name of the module you want to install. For example, “account_payment_partner”.
Log in to your Odoo instance and go to the “Apps” screen.
Locate the module you want to install and click on it to view the module details.
In the module details, you will find the technical name and version of the module. Make note of this information.
Contact technical team and provide them with the technical name and version of the module you want to install.
Technical team will add the module to the Ansible inventory file. This will ensure that the module is installed permanently and will persist even if the instance is redeployed.
Once the module has been added to the Ansible inventory, technical team can deploy the changes to the instance.
By following these steps, you’ll be able to install any OCA module you need in your
odoo-test-14instance and ensure that it is available for use in the long term. Remember to test each module thoroughly before using it in a production environment, and to always check the compatibility information for each module before installing it.
