Hi !

1. In your CSV File, You can control it by using below code. Here id must be unique and class name must be represented by model_sample_model( _name='sample.model').


2. You can directly create ACL in Settings -> Technical -> Security -> Access Control List (Technical menu item not visible if you are not in debug mode.

3. Using fields_view_get method its also helpful to hide button based on user.

Hi , the above code sets the create and edit button invisible  irrespective of the group.

you need to control it using ir_model_access.csv file,

include your object and specify the group and CRUD permission

You can refer any standard module for the syntax and usage

or you can achieve it with fields_view_get method
