In an XML file:

<delete model="ir.ui.menu" id="hr.menu_hr_department_tree" />

You can find the name for any Menu under Settings --> User Interface --> Menu Items and, in Developer Mode, open the menu form view and select View Log from the Debug Menu.

The part of the XML ID to the right of the period is what you want to search for.

i tried but it does'nt work;i added this line and it's ok: <delete model="ir.ui.menu" id="hr.menu_hr_department_tree" />

how can hide a menu for one group specific user?

i like to hide a menu for one group specifity, but when i apply delete this remove all menu for all users, but i want to hide for one groups. explain: i inherit a groups to user from warehouse, but this specifity users i dont want to show menu stock out.

for example i create a new groups users. i define in MY_module_folder/security/my_security.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
 <data noupdate="0">
    <record id="group_stock_manager_moseltex" model="res.groups">
        <field name="name">Almacen_mosel Encargado</field>
       <field name="implied_ids" eval="[(4, ref('stock.group_stock_manager'))]"/>

but i want to hide a menu stock out (this code put inside the my_security.xml).

 <record model="ir.ui.menu" id="menu_action_picking_tree">
 <field name="groups_id"  eval="[ref('group_stock_manager_moseltex')]" />

but this is dont work.
