I'm building a view for CRM-Core Contact, but I can't find the author/creator field from the Add Fields list.

I have checked the database table, there IS a column uid:

The users.uid that owns this contact; initially, this is the user that created it.

Any idea about this?

And there are no permissions like Edit own Contacts, only permissions like Edit any Contact. Is it designed on purpose?

    Is CRM-core your Drupal implementation or some module? – Wtower Feb 17 '14 at 8:10
  • a module, see the link that I added in the post – clark Feb 18 '14 at 5:52

From what I know, the permissions 'edit any contact' is designed on purpose...module maintaiers claim this allows for custom permissions to be set per your requirement.

As for author / creator field, you have to add a relationship first to your view Try these -

  1. CRM Core Activity: Author
  2. Entity Reference: Participants

That should probably expose the field you are looking for.
