Why is the field "Title" restricted to users with Technical Features enabled?

on 4/9/13, 6:16 PM 2,740 views

As stated above, the field "Title" of a contact (where you can choose Mr., Mrs., etc.) is restricted to users of the groep "base.group_no_one". (Which is the ID of the Technical Features group.)

Code of this field:

<field name="title" domain="[('domain', '=', 'contact')]" groups="base.group_no_one" options="{"no_open": True}" attrs="{'invisible': [('is_company','=', True)]}"/>

You can both set and create titles in the contact form as a non-technical user. What is hidden from users that are not in the Technical Features Group is the menu option Sales > Configuration > Address Book > Contact Titles (along with all the other menu options under Configuration).

I haven't yet grepped through the code to search for the XML you included. Are you sure that belongs to the contacts form and not something else?

Yes, 100% sure. It makes no sense to me also.

Where are you finding this?

None the 29 standard form views or 7 standard tree views in OpenERP have this restriction.

It makes no sense (as you are probably suggesting in your post).

I am wondering if a custom module added it, or a power user did, or you are using an older build which had this in by mistake (but I didn't see a bug report for it).

Module Sales > Customer, then click on a customer (which is not marked as company).

I updated on 4-4-2013 with bzr update and started openerp-server with option “--update=all", should be allright.

Only thing else installed what can be the cause, is a module to split the name into lastname and firstname: Partner first name, last name, https://code.launchpad.net/~partner-contact-core-editors/partner-contact-management/7.0
