I just created a user group and I need to get its XML ID to associate it with a certain button on a certain form. I clicked on the View Log option on the developer mode to check my created group's XML ID and what I see here as a value is 'false'. How do I add an XML ID for it?

All records you enter via the user interface will not have an XML ID.

To get one assigned, export the record and OpenERP will assign it one.

Great! Thanks Ray.
