Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/server-auth Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

In recent Odoo versions, the login field is tightly linked to the email field (the field is displayed with an “Email” label, and it will populate the email of the user if it contains an “@” character).

Yet for the users who uses a distinct login and email, this is confusing.

The goal of this module is to untangle (a bit) these two fields. Here are the changes:

  • In the res.users form view:
    • Display a “Login” label instead of “Email” on the login field
    • Show the currently invisible email field and its label
  • In the res.users tree view:
    • Display the email field next to the login field
  • Change the login layout to prompt for a “Login” instead of an “Email” (compatible with the web_enterprise layout)
