When you turn on developer mode, you'll be able to choose what kind of user you want to be.


Internal users have access to the application, with each module's user access defined. Clients that have portal access are usually customers who only have access to their own documents.

The language and time zone of the user can be adjusted under the Preferences tab. In the language selection, all currently functional languages will be listed. Go to Settings > Translations > Languages to activate the new languages.

Users' access to the Odoo database is controlled by these restrictions. It illustrates what a database user can accomplish. These criteria are necessary to avoid ambiguity and ensure that the database is secure. We select the user's group in the user's form, which determines the user's access to certain programs. Please tell us more about the user groups.

Go to Settings > Users & Companies and enable developer mode, Groups.

It displays a list of all currently active user groups. Model access rules are established in groups inside an application. It will determine user access to models, menus, and views, among other things. These rules will be followed by users who are added to this group.


Let's look at the group Sales/Administrator. The Users tab displays users with administrative access permissions; you may also add a user to this group by clicking the add a line button, and the access rights of relevant users are modified on the user's form.


Inherited indicates that the users who are added to this group are also added to the Inherited tab's groups. When a person is added to the Sales/Administrator group, he is automatically added to the Sales/User: All Documents group as well. It also means that the user will have full access to all documents in the Sales/User: All Documents group.

In the Menus tab, you may specify which menus are available to this user group.


The Access Rights tab defines the rights for controlling each model in the various apps. It's defined model-by-model; we may pick a model and give it read, write, create, and delete permissions. The technical name of the model will be displayed in the Name field.


Record Rules are a type of secondary editing that can be used to overwrite or refine existing rules. It's written with the domain in mind. We can assign read, write, create, and delete access to a domain, which is a list of conditions that filter the record.


Database security is vital to prevent unwanted access and secure the database with two-factor authentication and access restrictions to prevent illegal access.
