the following pop-up is displayed when trying to view an individual move (note: i can see the tree list, the error is triggered when i want to view individual moves)

this is the pop-up's text:

Access Denied The requested operation cannot be completed due to security restrictions. Please contact your system administrator. (Document type: Picking List, Operation: read)

and this is from the server log:

  File "/opt/openerp/oerp/openerp70/server/openerp/osv/osv.py", line 144, in wrapper
raise except_osv(inst.name, inst.value) except_osv: (u'Access Denied', u'The requested operation cannot be completed due to security restrictions. Please contact your system administrator.\n\n(Document type: Picking List, Operation: read)')

You don't have to be a Warehouse Manager to see stock moves.

Regular Warehouse users can see stock moves both in the list view and in form view (for individual moves), as long as they are a member of Technical Settings / Manage Multiple Locations and Warehouses or have the matching permission checked on their user record.

If this isn't the case in your system, someone has changed the security settings.

When you navigate to Settings -> Technical -> User Interface -> Menu Items and find the record for the Stock Moves menu, you should see:

Thanks Ray. I went ahead and created a new user with Warehouse Management permissions and the problem was resolved. I guess something went wooha when restoring the db.
