yes,,, this is security in odoo....

the stable approach i will guide is ir.model.access.csv,

Go to settings-->users-->groups

In that chose all the groups for whom you should give access... click export ... window appears in that select name and add then click export to file ...

now a file will be generated modify it same as some eg ir.model.access.csv files then add it in __openerp__.py file then update & upgrade.....

see this link

For what i export it..
