Overview of this book

With its latest iteration, the powerful Odoo framework released a wide variety of features for rapid application development.

This book isn't just limited to backend development; you'll discover advanced JavaScript recipes for creating new views and widgets. As you progress, you'll learn about website development and become a quality Odoo developer by studying performance optimization, debugging, and automated testing.

Adding custom settings options

In Odoo, you can provide optional features through the Settings options. The user can enable or disable this option at any time. We will illustrate how to create Settings options in this recipe.

Getting ready

In previous recipes, we have added buttons so that non-librarian users can borrow and return books. This is not the case for every library; however, we will create a settings option to enable and disable this feature. We will do this by hiding these buttons. In this recipe, we will use the same my_library module from the previous recipes.

How to do it...

In order to create custom settings options, follow these steps:

  1. Add a new group in the my_library/security/groups.xml file:
        <record id="group_self_borrow" model="res.groups">
            <field name="name">Self borrow</field>
