How can I make a menuitemonly for base.group_sale_manager visible?

for example this:

if I make this, the other user with " only own leads " rights can see the menuitem only.

<menuitem id="real_menu_second_2" parent="section_main_menu_1" groups="base.group_sale_manager" action="button_action_addon"/>

Title of question is: "How can I make a **button** only for base.group_sale_manager visible?", even in question text you refer to **button**, and as you posted a code it appears that actually you're asking about menuitem and NOT about a button. Please correct your question title and a question itself, to make it clear what is it about. My answer below is for a button, not for a menuitem.

You can do it by overriding fields_view_get() method. In this method you just have to check if sales manager group is assigned (using has_group() method of res.users object) to current user or not. If not then hide the button.

def fields_view_get(...):
# super call
# check if sales manager group is assigned to current user
# if not, hide the button (add invisible modifier to button)

 How to add modifiers?

You can use computed Boolean field for that,  include this field in your view as invisible="1" and make the button invisible depending on the value of the Boolean field. Here is the Boolean field itself:

is_sales_manager = fields.Booelan("Sales Manager", compute="compute_is_sales_manager")

def compute_is_sales_manager(self):
is_manager = self.env.user.has_group("base.group_sale_manager")
for rec in self:
rec.is_sales_manager = is_manager

so, if you make the button invisible depending on this Boolean field, then it should be visible only to users who belong to the "base.group_sale_manager" group.
