    'version' : "1.0",
    'author' : "Nupur",
    'category' : "Tools",
    'depends' : ['base','crm'],
    'update_xml' : [
    'data' : []
    'demo' : [

    'installable': True,


from openerp.osv import osv
from openerp.osv import fields
class idea_idea(osv.osv):
          _inherit = 'crm.lead'
          _columns = {
            'user_id' : fields.many2one('res.users','Salesperson')


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

step 1) Get Technical Features access right [from settings --> Users-->Select the logged in User check Technical Features check box]

step 2) restart openerp server

Step 3) update module list [settings --> Update Modules List]

Step 4) search by "not Installed tag" in installed Modules menu view

How to get technical access right ?

Stupid question but, is your module in the addon_path ?

If it's the case. When you restart from a fresh database. Is your module accessible for installation?

yay it is in the addon path, all other modules are accessible except this

and when you start from a fresh database, your module is not in the list too?
