You can try to find whether the user has Group access for a particular group.

Flag = self.pool.get('res.users').has_group(cr,create_uid.id , 'base.group_sale_manager')

If access is available, then it is TRUE.

Openerp has a build in mechanism to restrict access per model / record:

  • Access Control List
  • Record Rule

Generally you can configure access control per model (ex. write access for certain group), openerp will do the checking for you.

The other is condition in workflow transition: you can set group in workflow transition, so that it can be triggered only by that group.

So in many cases you don't have to write some code to check user's group.
