Share products between multi companies

I tried at least with 10 new installations to create this multi companies situation.

I'm on Odoo version 8.0.2

I followed all the tutorials I have found. It doesn't work.

Here is the situation :

+ Company's Structure
      - Main company
            - ciesub1
                  - ciesub1.1

+ Users
      - Admin (Main company, Allowed Companies : Main Company)
      - sub1user (ciesub1, Allowed Companies : ciesub1)

+ Products
      - productmain (company_id = Main company)
      - product1 (company_id = ciesub1)
      - product1.1 (company_id = ciesub1.1)
      - productglobal (company_id = null )

+ In Sales -> Products -> Products :
      - Admin user can see ALL 4 products; (good, normal)
      - sub1user can only see productglobal and product1. (??????????????????)
Questions / comments

      - Why does subuser1 not see products from Main company? (I have read that it should see it, but I CAN'T reproduce it.)
      - Why does subuser1 not see products from his child company ciesub1.1? (Mysterious thing!)
      - Is this a bug?

      (3 days on this problem... hope you could help me)

Thanks for your attention

Our problem is resolved! YES! and REYES!

In Settings -> Technical -> Security -> Record Rules -> Product multi-company , the default rule was wrong. So we change :



for :

Sounds like something that should be fixed. Did you submit a bug report?
