Create a view for a specific user/group

on 7/7/14, 11:02 AM 3,146 views

How to create different "views" and associate them to different group of users?

What you wrote is working for me:

<field name="code" groups="base.group_multi_company"/> 

Only the user within the group "group_multi_company" can see that field!

Now my problem is to make it with a new group (settings->groups->new group).

I tried base.new_group hr.new_group and so one... but none of them is working. I will post a specific question just for that issue.

You generally don't achieve that with the views itself, but you can surely achieve this using the groups="" attribute on your view.

For example:
<field name="code" groups="base.group_multi_company"/> 

This would only show my "code" field to any user that has the "multi company" setting checked.

I create the group "test-group" within Settings->Groups and I add user1 as group member. Then I modify the code like this: Now the field is not visible for user1 or other users. Is it correct "base.test-group" or I should change "base" with something else: "xxxxxxx.test-group"?

The xxxx should be the name of the module that the group is defined in. Normally you would make a custom module for this. For example: If you module is called "sale_davide" and you make an XML with the group name "test-group", then the item should have groups="sale_davide.test-group". Hope this helps!
