This module extends the functionality of company management. It allows you to bind a technical user on the company in order to use it in batch processes.

The technical user must - be inactive to avoid login - be in the required groups depending of what you need to do

If you install the module, you will find a tab on the company form allowing to define the technical user.

In your code you can use the following helper that will return you

  • a self with the user tech if configured
  • or a self with sudo user
self_tech = self.sudo_tech()

If you want to raise an error if the tech user in not configured just call it with
