I would like to filter datas with domain action and current company_id.
I tried many thinks without success :

<record id="action_tasks" model="ir.actions.act_window">
        <field name="name">tasks</field>
        <field name="res_model">project.task</field>
        <field name="view_type">form</field>
        <field name="view_mode">tree,form</field>
        <field name="context">{}</field>
        <field name="domain" >[('company_id','!=',context.get('company_id',False))]</field>

More generally how to create an action linked on a menu that is filtered on current company.
Is there any way to dynamically associate the menu to an action and return a filtered action_window?

Thanks to @Ray and @atchuthan for advice. It works implemented in rule. Small drawback is that this setting does not apply to the admin. Only an ordinary user has limited access to the data filtered by "company_id" rule.

We already have a rule available for Project Task that was done for Multi-company

    <record model="ir.rule" id="task_comp_rule">
        <field name="name">Project/Task: multi-company</field>
        <field name="model_id" ref="model_project_task"/>
        <field name="global" eval="True"/>
        <field name="domain_force">['|',
                                        ('company_id', '=', False),
                                        ('company_id', 'child_of', [user.company_id.id]),

So, your requirement is to show the record for that particular company and not all its child company.  Then you need to change the RULE

<field name="domain_force">['|',
                                        ('company_id', '=', False),
                                        ('company_id', '=', [user.company_id.id]),

But, functionally making this change is a wrong move.

    [ ("company_id", "=", base.main_company) ] if you rely on only one company (this usually works).

Is there any way to dynamically associate the menu to an action and return a filtered action_window?

Override the search method in your model.
