Manage model export profiles

Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/server-ux Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module extends the export capability:

  1. It allows an admin to manage export profiles (ir.exports) that Odoo stores internally but does not show anywhere.

  2. It also adds a new column to access rights to enable/disable export and override the export method to check if the user is allowed to export. Export is enabled by default.

Table of contents


  • Activate the developer mode

  • Go to Settings > Users > Groups to select a user group

  • Edit the group and go to the Access Rights tab

  • Uncheck the “Export Access” box on the object of your choice and save

You can also go to Settings > Technical > Security > Access Rights.


You can create the export profiles as you are used to:

  • Go to any list view.

  • Check some records.

  • Press More > Export.

  • Use the wizard to choose the columns to export.

  • Press Save fields list.

  • Press OK.

To manage export profiles, you need to:

  • Go to Settings > Technical > User Interface > Export Profiles.

  • Create a new one.

  • Choose a name.

  • Choose a model (table in the database).

  • Choose the fields to export.

    • If you choose a related field, you can choose also up to 4 levels of subfields.

    • You can drag & drop to reorder the fields.

To use one of those profiles, you need to:

  • Go to any list view.

  • Check some records.
