Force enable attachments

Force enable attachments upload

In odoo, by default, you can’t add attachments to a record if the form view is set as not editable (edit='false' in the form tag)

This module adds a new form view attribute, attach=, which lets you enable attachment uploads even in non-editable forms.

Keep in mind: users still won’t be able to attach documents to records they don’t have write access to (according to ACL and record rules); this module does not bypass odoo’ security rules!


Add the attach="true" attribute to the form view tag which of uneditable views (normal editable views already allow attaching a document and there is no need for this attribute).
