OpenERP 7.0 : Employee fields restriction in edit

on 3/12/13, 2:28 AM 1,411 views

When an employee edits his/her information I want to restrict certain fields not to edit by employee (but can be editable by ADMIN).

You could use the "read" and "write" attributes on field definition, like this one:

    _columns = {
        'credit_limit': fields.float(string='Credit Limit',

This will create a field named credit_limit that will be readable by users belonging to base.group_sale_salesman and writable only by base.group_sale_manager users...

Hi Mario, Thanks for the reply. It helped me a lot.

You can apply group on that field.admin exist to that group not user.

like groups="base.group_no_one"
