As your Odoo database grows, the more you think of how to manage users efficiently. Each new app installed and each employee hired become a headache for Odoo administrators. Which rights should have a sales manager? What checkbox have I again missed? This is the tool to forget about such questions. The app is to manage users from a role perspective not based on security rights. Simple to start, easy to maintain, and safe to administrate.

Documentation: https://faotools.com/docs/4/security-user-roles-31

2 clicks to apply user rights

To add access rights it is enough to assign a role for a user. Odoo would automatically add required security groups. No need to always remember all checkboxes!

Multiple roles per user

Assign security roles in any combination to reflect employee Odoo rights. As precise as it is needed. Or leave roles empty to administrate very specific users manually

Safe in changing environment

To change the rights of multiple users it is enough to update a security role. It takes a few seconds to reflect changes in policies or in the set of installed apps. Fast and minimum risks of errors!

Simple to start

Security roles are managed absolutely in the same way as you do for standard Odoo users. You may even create roles based on existing users or, vice versa: a user based on a role

Dynamic updates

The app lets configure advanced rules to automatically add/remove users to a role. For example, to temporarily grant rights for a substitute employee, or block access for vacation time

All modules access groups

The tool works with access groups introduced by any modules: Odoo standard, third-party, or custom ones. The logic here and settings availability are the same as in configuring users.

Temporary user blocking and activation

  • Set up advanced rules to assign a user for a role temporarily or, vice versa, to block a user for a specific period
  • To that goal, go to the tab 'Temporary Activation and Blocking' and add a line. Each user might have a single linked rule per a role
  • When you block a user for some period, it means that she/he would not have the role for that time. During other intervals, this user would be re-assigned for this role. For example, use such rules for vacations and other types of time-offs
  • When you activate a user for some intervals, it means that she/he would have the role groups only during those periods. At other times, such a user would not have this role and access rights. For instance, it might be essential for a substitute or short-term employees
  • Each rule might have a few blocking or activating periods. Then, if any of those are suitable now, the rule would take place. For example, you may assign a few vacation intervals for a single user
  • The app will periodically check the rules and will block/activate users for roles when that is assumed by the rules. You may change the frequency of checks under the menu Settings > Technical > Automation > Scheduled Jobs > the action '[Security User Roles] Activate/Block Users for Roles'.

If a user does not have roles at all, Odoo would work in a standard way as if the app is not installed at all. So, you should assign user groups by yourself. Such approach might be suitable for some special users such as Odoo admins.

When a few user roles are assigned for a user, all its security groups would be applied to that user, For example, if the role 'Dev/Helpdesk' has the group 'Show SLA Polciies' & 'Use Subtasks', and the role 'Sales Assistant' has the group 'Advanced Pricelists', then a user with the both roles would have the all of the rights 'Show SLA Policies', 'Use Subtasls' and 'Advanced Pricelists'.

To that end you should apply 2 actions:

1. Create a user role with the user group/access level that you need, or add them to an existing user role

2. Add the role to target users.

Afterward, when a new access right is added or removed, the related changes would be applied to all users related to the role.

If you add this role to a new user, all user groups of the role will be added to this user as well.

If a user has roles, but you manually have added a security group the latter group would not be cleared out immediately. However, it would be cleared when you add/remove roles or change any of those roles groups. So, never add user groups manually if a user has roles. The app assumes that a user has only user groups which relate to his/her user roles.

According to the current Odoo Apps Store policies:

  • every module bought for version 12.0 and prior gives you access to all versions up to 12.0.
  • starting from version 13.0, every module version should be purchased separately.
  • disregarding the version, purchasing a tool grants you a right to all updates and bug fixes within a major version.

Take into account that the faOtools team does not control those policies. For all questions, please contact the Odoo Apps Store representatives​ directly​.

The easiest approach is to use the Odoo store built-in workflow:

1. Open the module's page and click the button Deploy on odoo.sh

2. After that, you will be redirected to the GitHub page. Login to your account and click 'Create a new repo' or use the existing one. Please, make sure, that your repository is private. It is not permitted to publish the apps under the OPL-1 license. If necessary, create a new repo for your Odoo.sh project

3. Then, go to odoo.sh and click on the deploy button, submit the decision in the pop-up window and click 'Continue'. The action will trigger the installation process.

These steps would install the app for your project production branch. If you wanted to deploy the apps for other branches or update the module, you should undertake the following actions:

1. Upload the source code for the app from the Odoo store

2. Commit the module to a required GitHub repository. Make sure that none of the app folders/files are ignored (included in the .gitignore of your repo). Repositories are automatically created by odoo.sh, which might add by default some crucial items there (e.g. /lib). You should upload all module directories, subdirectories, and files without exceptions

3. Deploy a target branch of the odoo.sh project or wait until it is automatically built if your settings assume that.

  1. Unzip the source code of the purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons' directories;

  2. Re-start the Odoo server;

  3. Turn on the developer mode (technical settings);

  4. Update the apps' list (the apps' menu);

  5. Find the app and push the button 'Install';

  6. Follow the guidelines on the app's page if those exist.

Yes, sure. Take into account that Odoo automatically adds all dependencies to a cart. You should exclude previously purchased tools.

A red/orange warning itself does not influence features of the app. Regretfully, sometimes our modules do not pass standard automatic tests, since the latter assumes behavior which is in conflict with our apps goals. For example, we change price calculation, while standard Odoo module tests compare final price to standard algorithm.

So, first of all, please check deployed database features. Does everything work correctly?

If you still assume that warning influences real features, please contact us and forward full installation logs and the full lists of deployed modules (including core and third party ones).

Regretfully, we do not have a technical possibility to provide individual prices.

No, third party apps can not be used on Odoo Online.

Yes, all modules marked in dependencies are absolutely required for a correct work of our tool. Take into account that price marked on the app page already includes all necessary dependencies.  

The price for our modules is set up in euros. The Odoo store converts prices in others currencies according to its internal exchange rate. Thus, the price in US Dollars may change, when exchange rate changes.

Odoo demonstration databases (live previews)

For this app, we might provide a free personalized demo database.

To demand such a database, press the button "Live Preview" on the top of this page or copy the link https://faotools.com/s/0x2eus

No phone number or credit card is required to contact us: only a short email sign up which does not take more than 30 seconds.

By your request, we will prepare an individual live preview database, where you would be able to apply any tests and check assumptions for 14 days.

Bug reporting

In case you have faced any bugs or inconsistent behavior, do not hesitate to contact us. We guarantee to provide fixes within 60 days after the purchase, while even after this period we are strongly interested to improve our tools.

To send us a bug report: press the "Website" link on the top of this page and push the button "Bug Report" (the tab Support). Alternatively, copy the link https://faotools.com/s/czbx3v

No phone number or credit card is required to contact us: only a short email sign up which does not take more than 30 seconds.

Please include in your request as many details as possible: screenshots, Odoo server logs, a full description of how to reproduce your problem, and so on. Usually, it takes a few business days to prepare a working plan for an issue (if a bug is confirmed) or provide you with guidelines on what should be done (otherwise).

Public features requests and module ideas (free development)

We are strongly motivated to improve our tools and would be grateful for any sort of feedback. In case your requirements are of public use and might be efficiently implemented, the team would include those in our to-do list.

Such a to-do list is processed on a regular basis and does not assume extra fees. Although we cannot promise deadlines and final design, it might be a good way to get desired features without investments and risks.

Muy útil cuando tienes muchos usuarios y/o alta rotación.

Una funcionalidad excelente es que si modificas un rol, actualiza automáticamente a todo el grupo de usuarios afectado.
