If i created new module depends on another one, Is there is any way to remove/disable/override default data (Users/Groups/ACL/...) set by parent module.

For example, i created a module depends on the project management module, and i want to use my own data and disable, remove or override: 1. Users and groups.(project_security.xml) 2. Rules and Access Control.(project_security.xml) 2. Task Stages.(project_data.xml)

And what the impact of <data noupdate="0/1">?

you can use <delete> tag to delete already created record in xml.

<delete model='model.name' search="your search domain in list of tuples"/>

Thanks Omal, after more googling I found another way to delete/replace data: <record model="res.user" id="user_id"> <field name="groups_id" eval="[(6, 0, [])]" /> </record>

if noupdate="1" is provided then the xml part comes under <data noupdate="1"><!--xml code --></data>will be loaded only the first time when loading the file. what ever change in the xml code will not be loaded after that. by default, noupdate='0'
