I have created a user ,User1 with login credentials.I want to give restrictions to access certain fields in openerp so that the particular user can use permitted modules only.I have come half the way but the issue now is I dont want User1 to have the permission to create,edit or delete customers and the user should have only the read permission.I tried using many steps for the past two days,but in vain.Can any one please explain from the basic changes in User account regarding this permission issue to the changes that are to be made in Groups/Access Control List.

On the user profile, at the bottom of the screen in the access rights tab you should have the checkbox "Contact Creation". Uncheck that box and your user should no longer be able to create any contacts.

Also look for the other groups. The rights of the highest access group will always prevail, so if any of the groups allows your user to still make contacts, then this means you have to remove the user from that group.

I tried unchecking the "Contact Creation" in user profile.but I am not clear what all to be done with the groups.Could you please explain?

Well. Check all the groups that the user is currently in. If any of these groups have any of the create/update/delete rights on the "res.partner" model, than obviously that group will grant those rights to the users, which is not what you want. Make sure that your user is no longer part of that group. If he/she needs to be a part of that group for other functionality to work than perhaps see if you can alter the groups in a custom module.
