I want to use Services and Profile 2 together.

Like following json code:




  "uid": "3",
  "name": "test1",
  "theme": "",
  "signature": "",
  "signature_format": "filtered_html",
  "created": "1393554511",
  "access": "1393562420",
  "login": "1393562420",
  "status": "1",
  "timezone": "Asia/Chongqing",
  "language": "",
  "picture": null,
  "data": false,
  "roles": {
    "2": "authenticated user"
  "rdf_mapping": {
    "rdftype": [
    "name": {
      "predicates": [
    "homepage": {
      "predicates": [
      "type": "rel"

  "profile 2 field": "test",
  "profile 2 field2": "test",
  "profile 2 field3": "test",
  "profile 2 field4": "test",
  "profile 2 field5": "test",
  "profile 2 field6": "test"

I find some code detail in Services Module :


 * Get user details.
 * @param $uid
 *   UID of the user to be loaded.
 * @return
 *   A user object.
 * @see user_load()
function _user_resource_retrieve($uid) {
  $account = user_load($uid);
  if (empty($account)) {
    return services_error(t('There is no user with ID @uid.', array('@uid' => $uid)), 404);


  // Everything went right.
  return $account;

It seems services invoke user_load() method to get user's default information.

So I think:

  • Can I implement hook_user_load() to load Profile 2 fields?
  • Recently, I have used user-profile2 with services for user registration. If required I can share the sample JSON code with you where profile fields also managed at same time. From your question, I am not clear what you exactly want to do with profile2. May 27, 2014 at 5:08
  • @PushpinderRana, thanks for you reply, In RESTful API, there is post, put, can create a user, and update a user. If I create a user with profile2 field, it will can not work.

You can use the Services Views module to expose the Profile 2 data you need.

Views support for the Services module version 3.x and later.

It has currently two features:
- Create view based resource creating Services display in a view
- Execute any view of the system via views resource call
