Overview of this book

Odoo is a powerful framework known for rapid application development. Its latest release, Odoo 12, introduces tons of new features. With this book, you’ll learn how to develop powerful Odoo applications from scratch, using all the latest features. This Odoo cookbook starts by covering Odoo installation and deployment on the server. Next, you’ll explore the Odoo framework with real-world examples. You’ll create a new Odoo module from the ground up and progress to advanced framework concepts. You’ll also learn how to modify existing applications, including Point of Sale (POS). This book is not just limited to backend development; the advanced JavaScript recipes for creating new views and widgets will help you build beautiful UI elements. As you move forward, you’ll gain insights into website development and become a quality Odoo developer by studying performance optimization, debugging, and automated tests. Finally, you’ll learn the latest concepts like multi-website, In-App Purchasing (IAP),, and IoT Box. By the end of the book, you’ll have all the knowledge you need to build powerful Odoo applications.

Creating security groups and assigning them to users

Security access in Odoo is configured through security groups: permissions are given to groups and then groups are assigned to users. Each functional area has base security groups provided by a central application.

When add-on modules extend an existing application, they should add permissions to the corresponding groups, as shown in the Adding security access to models recipe later.

When add-on modules add a new functional area not yet covered by an existing central application, they should add the corresponding security groups. Usually, we should have at least user and manager roles.

Taking the Library example we introduced in Chapter 4, Creating Odoo Add-On Modules, it doesn't fit neatly in any of the Odoo core apps, so we will add security groups for it.
