how to apply field level Access rights for user ?

on 6/1/13, 9:41 AM 3,716 views

I need to apply field level access right for a user in point of sale module. The main problem I face is the entire stuff is in Javascript and I need to manage user access inside the POS.


As of OpenERP 7.0, you can create field level access rights. You can achieve this by adding the groups attribute in your field definition in the module:

_columns = { 'secret_key': fields.char('Secret Key', groups="base.group_erp_manager,base.group_system") }

In your case, you will have to inherit the target class in the point_of_sale module

However, I am facing another issue that is mentioned in this link http://help.openerp.com/question/9937/how-to-display-a-view-with-one-field-removed-for-certain-groups/

You can achieve this by adding the groups attribute in your field definition in the module: create your special group in your module

    <record id ="mygrou_id" model="res.groups">
       <field name="name">My special group</field>

in view file add this group in your particular field

    <field name"myfield" groups="my_module.mygrou_id"/>

plz remember to add user for this group


This will only hide the field in that specific view. Meaning the field can still be viewed using XML-RPC or customized views. It only has cosmetic effects and not security.

OpenERP is providing access rights on object level. You can create groups and apply "groups" attribute in XML.
