KeyError: 'active'

Active is a field used by Odoo to determine which records to normally show. Making it unselectable to users also makes it unselectable to Odoo. What is the business problem or use case you are trying to implement? Perhaps there is another way.

Hey Ray..thanks for quick reply. In Advance Search there is one field named 'Active' (active in res_partner table). I want to hide it from all the users other than Admin. When i used above link it's giving me error posted above...kindly check

I would like to let you know that this piece of code is working fine and producing desired output without any errors. Kindly provide more details on your issue(as you said it is working properly on your local machine).

Hi @Nepro: Thanks for your answer. Did you try to add new contact in this environment?
