Odoo User Security Roles

Updated 30 January 2024


Manage the security Roles easily in Odoo!

Odoo is a complete business package; thus, giving every user all rights is a major security threat. To perform any action in Odoo, it is appropriate to limit the rights of the users.

Odoo Security for user determines how different individuals, such as salespeople, can access various types of documents. To monitor access to data, you can alter existing security roles, create new security roles, or adjust the security roles allocated to each user by the help of Odoo User Security Roles‘.

If you have a lot of employees then it will take lots of effort in giving access rights to all the users manually. ‘Odoo User Security Roles’ lets you build different sets of user security roles. After configuring that, as per your business needs, you can delegate the roles to one or more users.

You may also describe the user access rules in Odoo by default. But, if you have many users then individually assigning access rights to each user is a hectic task. The module helps you to build the security roles so you can delegate the roles directly to the users.
