Finding Menu ids of existing Modules in Odoo?

on 3/8/16, 2:23 AM 776 views

I want to remove Customer menu from the Sales Module. So What I have done is that I created a Group named hidden group & am assigning it to Customer menu to hide it.. So My code is like this:-
Here I want to find the parent value and id value of the menu.. So If I  give it here only I can hide it. So how can I find it from Odoo?

<record model="res.groups" id="group_invisible">
            <field name="name">Hidden items</field>

        <menuitem id="module_name.menuitem_id" parent="base.menu_sales" sequence="1" groups="group_invisible"/>

why don't you just go to Configuration---> user interface ----> Meu Items ,

then search for clients menu

then in security settings(Groups Tab) , add your cuistom groups that you want client's menu visible for them.

i know if you delete the database you'll have to repeat this , but i think it's not a big problem or a time taking

PS: make sure the admin has the Techical access rights

I don't know if this is what you need, but for the list of the base. ( menus ) you can use this...

On Settings -> Sequences & Identifiers -> External Identifiers in your Odoo Database you can look for items that start with menu_
