How to get database ID from XML ID in XML domain?

I need the id of a group for a domain in a view. How can I resolve the database id from the xml id?

[('groups_id', '=', %(module.group_name)d)] 

does not work.

In python one could use the ir.model.datas get_object method to get the id e.g. But that does not help in the xml file.

Help is appreciated.

What you probably want is using `groups` attribute of field tag for field visibility:

    <field name="a_field" groups="module.group_name">


Otherwise, to use XML ID in domain, you could try:

     domain="[('groups_id', '=', ref(module.group_name))]"
