Limit products to company assigned to user in multi-company Odoo 9

I have a multi-company setup in Odoo, and I would like to limit the products that each user (under the group "User") can access (read/write/create/delete) to the products assigned to the company that the user is assigned to.

To be clear, I have:


  • Company A

  • Company B


  • User A (assigned to "Company A" and user group "User")

  • User B (assigned to "Company B" and user group "User")


  • Product A (assigned to "Company A")

  • Product B (assigned to "Company B")

With the default setup, User A has access to both Product A and Product B, and I would like user A to have access exclusively to product A, on all modules (Sales, Inventory, POS…)

I believe that is possible to accomplish using Record Rules, but I haven't been able to do it.

There already is a product.product multicompany rule (but it is inactive by default): "Product multi-company"

xml id: product.product_comp_rule

You can active it by going to settings => general settings.
Check "manage multi company", then uncheck "share product to all companies"
