you can use the following example

<record id="original_module.menu_id" model="ir.ui.menu">
    <field name="groups_id" eval="[(3,ref('my_new_group_id'))]"/>

There are actually0-6 numbers for representing each job for a many2many/ one2many field

  • (0, 0, { values }) -- link to a new record that needs to be created with the given values dictionary
  • (1, ID, { values }) -- update the linked record with id = ID (write values on it)
  • (2, ID) -- remove and delete the linked record with id = ID (calls unlink on ID, that will delete the object completely, and the link to it as well)
  • (3, ID) -- cut the link to the linked record with id = ID (delete the relationship between the two objects but does not delete the target object itself)
  • (4, ID) -- link to existing record with id = ID (adds a relationship)
  • (5) -- unlink all (like using (3,ID) for all linked records)
  • (6, 0, [IDs]) -- replace the list of linked IDs (like using (5) then (4,ID) for each ID in the list of IDs)

I've tried this example:

<record id="view_picking_out_form_stoking" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">stock.picking.form.stocking</field>
            <field name="model">stock.picking</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="stock.view_picking_out_form"/>
            <field name="groups_id" eval="[(6,0,[ref('stoking.res_groups_fournisseur')])]"/>
            <field name="type">form</field>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <xpath expr="/form[@string='Delivery Orders']/group/group/field[@name='date']" position="attributes">
                    <attribute name="attrs">{'readonly':[('state','not in',['cancel'])]}</attribute>
                <xpath expr="/form[@string='Delivery Orders']/group/group/field[@name='min_date']" position="attributes">
                       <attribute name="attrs">{'readonly':[('state','not in',['cancel'])]}</attribute>
                <xpath expr="/form[@string='Delivery Orders']/group/group/field[@name='address_id']" position="attributes">
                       <attribute name="attrs">{'readonly':[('state','not in',['cancel'])]}</attribute>
                <xpath expr="/form[@string='Delivery Orders']/notebook/page[@string='Notes']/field[@name='note']" position="attributes">
                       <attribute name="attrs">{'readonly':[('state','not in',['cancel'])]}</attribute>


But all groups is in read only. My goal is that "res_groups_fournisseur" only is in readolny in these fields.

i like to hide a menu for one group specifity, but when i apply delete this remove all menu for all users, but i want to hide for one groups. explain: i inherit a groups to user from warehouse, but this specifity users i dont want to show menu stock out.

for example i create a new groups users. i define in MY_module_folder/security/my_security.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
 <data noupdate="0">
    <record id="group_stock_manager_moseltex" model="res.groups">
        <field name="name">Almacen_mosel Encargado</field>
       <field name="implied_ids" eval="[(4, ref('stock.group_stock_manager'))]"/>
    <record id="group_stock_user_moseltex" model="res.groups">
        <field name="name">Almacen_mosel usuario</field>
        <field name="category_id" ref="base.module_category_warehouse_management"/>
        <field name="implied_ids" eval="[(4, ref('stock.group_stock_user'))]"/>

but i want to hide a menu stock out (this code put inside the my_security.xml).

 <record model="ir.ui.menu" id="menu_action_picking_tree">
 <field name="groups_id"  eval="[ref('group_stock_manager_moseltex')]" />

but this is dont work.

i try to use this code, i think that this hide the menu for the users but this is no work.

<field name="groups_id" eval="[(3, ref('group_stock_users_moseltex'))]"/>
