Development Book V17: Setting Access Right

When we add a new data model, we must specify who may create, read, edit, and remove records. When we develop a new app, we must define a new user group. If we do not have access rights, Odoo will not display our menus or views.

We can add as many users as we need in Odoo, and only the user has access to the database. We may also decide what type of information the user has access to by assigning access rights.

Odoo offers two key data-driven methodologies for regulating or restricting data access. Both are assigned to certain users via groups. A user can belong to any number of groups, and the security mechanism is linked to groups, allowing security mechanisms to be applied to users.

Let us now build a security directory on the module and add the ir.model.access.csv file to it.

Scenarios are

  • Everyone can see every record.
  • Admins are the new group of users. They can read, create, delete, and update the records
  • Setting Access Rights

    Consider the following procedures to create access rights:

    1. Create a file security > groups.xml

                      <record id="new_user_group" model="res.groups">
    <field name="name">user</field>
    <field name="users" eval="[(4, ref(base.group_user'))]"/>

    2. Add file security> ir.model.access.csv


    3. Add the files into the
