I'd like to associate an user to a taxonomy term. I create users in a process import managed by rules.

I didn't found a solution with an existing module so I try to develop mine. I've also installed Entity reference module but I feel confused.

I've added a field_user in my taxonomy term fields management.I've added a field_conventions in my user field management.

I do not understand how to associate one or many terms to an user with rules.

I found User Terms module but unfortunately only for a Drupal 6.x

  • Added this as an answer. Play with your import procedures, and if you will not find a solution for "only one is added", ask us again, with new details. Good luck. and let's clean up comments now when they are no longer needed.

User profiles are fieldable in Drupal 7, you can add a taxonomy field already, with nothing but core. You don't need Entity Reference or any other modules, you can simply add field_taxonomy to your user. Sure, it is a bit opposite to "add users to terms" you described, but later, if you need it for Views etc, it doesn't matter which way it was created - there is a connection between user and term, and you can use it.
