Deduplicate Contacts ACL

This module extends the functionality of the CRM contact deduplicator to add permission groups that allow the matching users to use those tools, not needing to be the sale settings manager.


To configure this module, you need to:

  1. Go to Settings > Users > Users.

  2. Choose a user.

  3. Choose the desired permission level(s) in Appplication > Deduplicate Contacts:

    • Manually allows him to do the manual deduplication process.

    • Automatically allows him to do the automatic deduplication process.


      Automatic contact deduplication can easily lead to unwanted results. Better backup before doing it.

    • Without restrictions executes the chosen deduplication method with admin rigts, to be able to update objects where the user would normally not have write rights, and to allow him to merge contacts with different email addresses.


      This is an advanced feature, be sure to train the user before enabling this permission for him.


To use this module, you need to:

  1. Ask your admin to give you the new rigts.
  2. Go to Sales > Tools > Deduplicate Contacts as usual.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • Wizard's code is partially written in old API because somehow [possibly] the upstream's @mute_logger decorator prevents API from doing its magic.
