Suspend security checks for a call

Project description

License: AGPL-3

Suspend security

This module was written to allow you to call code with some uid while being sure no security checks (ir.model.access and ir.rule) are done. In this way, it’s the same as sudo(), but the crucial difference is that the code still runs with the original user id. This can be important for inherited code that calls workflow functions, subscribes the current user to some object, etc.

Usually, you’ll be in in the situation to want something like this if you inherit from a module you can’t or don’t want to change, and call super().

Usage

To use this module, you need to:

  • depend on this module
  • call yourmodel.suspend_security().function_to_run(), just the same as you would use sudo()

Known issues / Roadmap

  • the magic works by wrapping uid in a marker class, so if some code unwraps this in the calling tree, security checks will be reenabled
