Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I've been trying for a while to do this correctly now but couldn't find a correct way that does exactly what it should. The default menuitem 'Quotations' under Sales > Quotations should only be accessible for the group 'group_sale_manager' only and the same thing should be done for the menuitem 'Sales Orders' under Sales. My last attempt:
groups="base.group_sale_manager"/> <menuitem name="Sales Orders" id="sale.menu_sale_order" parent="base.menu_sales" groups="base.group_sale_manager"/>
Somehow this seems to work for Quotations but not for Sales Orders. What am I doing wrong or missing? Another thing that I was wondering is how to move an existing menuitem ('Customers' under Sales) to another section in the sale module. I've created a new menuitem:
<!--Creates a new top menuitem named 'SEL' --> <menuitem id="base.menu_sel" name="SEL" parent="base.menu_base_partner" groups="aa_module.group_sel_manager" sequence="1"/>
So how do I move the menuitem 'Customers' under the menuitem 'SEL' in place of under 'Sales'?
I copy and paste your menuitem def and the Quotations menu get the group ok, as @Tobiasz saids check agains a user that doesn't have the group. You could also try this way:
<record model='ir.ui.menu' id='sale.menu_sale_quotations'>
<field name="groups_id" eval="[(4,ref('base.group_sale_manager'))]"/>
Also you need to check that the user that you are using to test this does not have a group assigned that inherit from base.group_sale_manager
For the menu position all depends of the sequence field so if you vary the value of that field to a value lesser than or higher than another menu sequence value the menu will be moved.
Always after a change in the menus you need to refresh the page because the menu need to reload
Hope this helps
The menu for sale orders by default have defined the groups: "base.group_sale_salesman" and "base.group_sale_manager". To left only the group "base.group_sale_manager" redefine it like this in your module:
<menuitem name="Sales Orders" id="sale.menu_sale_order" parent="base.menu_sales" groups="-base.group_sale_salesman"/>
Notice the - sign before the group name
I tried like axel suggestion but not changing........
<record model='ir.ui.menu' id='sale.menu_sale_quotations'> <field name="groups_id" eval="[(4,ref('base.group_sale_salesman'))]"/></record> <record model='ir.ui.menu' id='sale.menu_sale_order'> <field name="groups_id" eval="[(4,ref('base.group_sale_salesman'))]"/></record>
