ir.actions.server SAVE BUTTON MISSING?

on 7/26/16, 2:32 PM 164 views

I have defined a server action in an xml file and attached it to a menu button. Everything works, I get redirected to the record in question and the record is displayed in edit mode. If I use target = current,new,inline I see exactly what I expect. 

I can even edit the fields!


There is NO save button.

<record id="action_settings" model="ir.actions.server">
<field name="name">Contact Settings</field>
<field name="model_id" ref="model_res_partner"/>
<field name="code">
action = {
"type": "ir.actions.act_window",
"view_mode": "form",
"res_model": "res.partner",
"target": "inline",
"res_id": user.commercial_partner_id.id,

As it turns out. This was a permissions related issue. The user in question only had read access on the destination model and so correctly could only read.
