I am working on Odoo CRM. I inherited CRM.lead I added some functionality I added new user roles to them.

Admin thing is working fine when I given user roles which I created now it's throwing error.

File ".........base/res/res_users.py", in has_group assert group_ext_id and '.' in group_ext_id, "External ID must be fully qualified"

"AssertionError: External ID must be fully qualified"

I tried but can't.

Help me if you know your valuable suggestion very help full for me.

Indeed, you need to refer to the groups using the notation "module.group_id". For example if you wanna set an xml node to be able to see only by the "Employee" group defined on the module base like:

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

, you need to add to your xml node:


The admin user bypass pretty much all the security checks
