How to make a field readonly for a particular group?

on 5/28/14, 3:53 AM 1,929 views

I have a field which i want to make it readonly for all the user from a group, lets say base.group_userA. any other users will be able to edit and save the field. How do i do that in openerp?. I have already set all CRUD access rights for all users.

 'WO_NOTES' : fields.text("Description"), 

in xml

<field name="WO_NOTES"/>.




I had the same problem, only I wanted to show fields only to users in a group. I solved this by inheriting the view and made changes to the specific group.

In your case it should look something like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<record model="ir.ui.view"  id="view_id">
    <field name="name">view.id</field>
    <field name="model">your.model</field>
    <field name="inherit_id" ref="id_of_inherited_view"/>
    <field name="groups_id" eval="[(6, 0, [ref('base.group_userA') ])]"/>
    <field name="arch" type="xml">
        <field name="WO_NOTES" position="attributes">
            <attribute name="readonly">1</attribute>

Hope this helps!
