Odoo Help


The test module(custom module) application is not showing in the application tab after installation inside users(which is in the left side of the screen;top of the 'group') because of this access right for individual users can't be given in odoo.

I have two user groups: manager and user but I can't add access right for those individuals For better understanding see image: 

my code ::

1. code of _init_.py file

import testmod

2. code of _openerp_.py file


'name': "Test Module",

'description': "Basic example of a (future) web module",

'author': 'tm',

'depends': ['base_setup'],

'data': ['test_view.xml','security/test_security.xml','security/ir.model.access.csv'],

'installable': True,

'application': True,

'auto_install': True,


3. code of testmod.py file

from openerp import models, fields,api

class testmod_test(models.Model):

_name = 'testmod.test'

_description = 'Test Model'

test1 = fields.Char('members id', required=False )

test2 = fields.Char('members name', required=False)

4. code of module xml view test_view.xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>



<record id="testmod_test_form" model="ir.ui.view">

<field name="name">testmod.test.form</field>

<field name="model">testmod.test</field>

<field name="arch" type="xml">

<form string="Test" version="7.0">

<field name="test1" />

<field name="test2"/>




<record id="testmod_test_tree" model="ir.ui.view">

<field name="name">testmod.test.tree</field>

<field name="model">testmod.test</field>

<field name="arch" type="xml">

<tree string="Test">

<field name="test1" />

<field name="test2"/>




<record model="ir.actions.act_window" id="action_testmod_test">

<field name="res_model">testmod.test</field>

<field name="view_type">form</field>
