This module introduces the following features:

  • It introduces the operating unit to the product template.
  • The operating unit from the user is assigned by default when creating a new product template.
  • In case of multi-company, no operating unit from another company to that assigned to the product can be set for it
  • It implements user's security rules.

Table of contents


  1. Create a Product: the Default Operating Unit of the user is assigned to it. If you want, you can change to another Operating Unit.
  2. Assignment of an operating unit of another company to the one set in the product raises an error for a multi-company setting.
  3. Access rules allow to just show those products having the same operating units as the user
