check_access_rule orm method

on 5/2/14, 4:40 PM 1,106 views

By looking at the openerp orm method document i am not able to understand what is use of check_access_rule orm method and when to use it? Can you explain with an example?

Hello Shanky, this method is invoked by CRUD methods at the ORM level, I don't think you would get any benefit by directly invoking it. It's purpose has already been explained by Sudhir.

Hello Shanky,

check_access_rule(...) method is used to check the Record Rules for the object and for current logged in user and according to defined rule user will have access on the object (Read, Write, Create, Delete).

This method skips record rules for Super Admin user (SUPERUSER_ID) (user with ID 1).

Hope this will help you a bit to understand the working of the method.
