Prevent from user updating the values of a record

on 12/10/14, 7:23 AM 718 views

Hello, I have Odoo 8.

I override the "create" method of the model "product.pricelist.item" in which I do some things after the record is created. In updating the record, I have some problems, so I don't want to allow the update. How can I turn off the "save" button when the user is updating, or how to display an error message when the user presses this button?

Use security groups... 
By putting a user in high security restricted gruoup you can deny him some rights... 
For any field (attribute) of any model you can specify CRUD (create,read,update, delte) rights...

You can modify them in GUI (Settings > Technical > Security 
Or modify then via custom module and import security rules : )

Thanks for your answer! And how can I don't allow update action for any user? On all fields of a model

I have created a rule in a custom module: "access_noModificaPriceListItem,access_noModificaPricelistItem,model_product_pricelist_item,,1,0,1,1" . Also I go to Techicanl -> Models -> product.pricelist.item and I uncheck all permissions of write. But the admin user still can modify the record

user admin is "superuser" with "supercow" privileges : ) closest thing to root user in linux, or admininistrator on windows... he is actualy supposed to be able to do things like that, also... user admin is not intended to be used for regular activities like creating documents etc.... that is the task for regular users :) (according to their group/user policies)

I'll go to create a regular user... thanks!
