Sometimes, you don't need to completly hide a field for a user, but just don't let him modify it, and for a group of users, thus for other users ( managers ) can modify this field.

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

Hello Yassine,

You can use record rules. Give only read access to normal user and for manager give all read, write, create, delete.

You can find document for creating record rule : http://odoo-80.readthedocs.org/en/latest/reference/security.html

Hope it helps!

Record rule can be apply on whole record not particular field, Question is about field.
