Hide a field using a new group

on 7/18/14, 9:46 AM 1,015 views

I create a new group "testgroup" with only one member "testuser".

Now from the "new leave request" view I try to hide a field:

<field name="number_of_days_temp" class="oe_inline" groups="base.testgroup"/>

But it is not working.

What should I write instead of groups="base.testgroup"?

If I use a standard group like groups="base.group_hr_manager" everything is working fine. The problem is only with the groups I create.

Syntax is not correct, you should specify groups in this manner "module.group_name"

For instance:

groups="base.group_hr_manager"  ==> means 'group_hr_manager' is present in module 'base'

like wise for "testgroup", it should be "your_module.testgroup" instead of "base.testgroup"
