Operating Unit in Purchase Requests

Beta License: LGPL-3 OCA/operating-unit Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module introduces the following features:

  • Adds the Operating Unit (OU) to the Purchase Request.
  • The user’s default Operating Unit (OU) is proposed at the time of creating the Purchase Request.
  • Security rules are defined to ensure that users can only see the Purchase Request of that Operating Units in which they are allowed access to.

Table of contents


Follow these steps:

  1. Create or use an existing Operating Unit (OU) in Settings -> Users & Configuration -> Operating Unit.
  2. Change the configuration of the Users. In Application Accesses, put an User as Request manager and another one as Request User.
  3. Create a Purchase Request Order. By default, if there is no Approver, any Manager with the same OU can accept the PO. If you specify an Approver, he must be in the same Operating Unit as the Purchase Request.
