if the goal is to simply block login, you could override the login/authenticate method and raise a proper error.

If you want to block access to a specific route only, override it and raise proper exception when condition is not matched.

How would I grant access to a website but only for a res_partner fulfilling a condition?

user case is publishing a list that is only accessible to partners who have "condition = True".

Another option would be to have a public page protected by a single password. Maybe in a popup?

Is there a module that could help? any pointer?

I was thinking to get in the controller, the user's id from the session and then conditionally return the required data but maybe there is an easier way?

Thank you
