I have 2 different roles like A and B.

I want anonymous users (everyone) can view user profiles from A role but can't view user profiles from B role.

In summary, A role profiles is open for everyone but B is not.

Access user profiles permission or View profiles permissions module is not enough for that.

Thanks in advance.

You can also use hook_user_view($account, $view_mode, $langcode) function to handle the permission. At first you need to copy the original function as below in the template.php

function hook_user_view($account, $view_mode, $langcode) {
    if (user_access('create blog content', $account)) {
        $account->content['summary']['blog'] = array(
        '#type' => 'user_profile_item',
        '#title' => t('Blog'),
        '#markup' => l(t('View recent blog entries'), "blog/$account->uid",  array('attributes' => array('title' => t("Read !username's latest blog entries.", array('!username' => format_username($account)))))),
        '#attributes' => array('class' => array('blog')),
);
      }
 }

Then check the current user role and the role of the user that is being visited. current user role is get by this:

global $user;
$role = $user->role;

the role of the profile is saved in the $account variable. Check to see what exactly its syntax is using devel module (I forgot the code syntax), If it was not there, you can get the owner of the profile id, use user_load(id) function to load the user then get its role. After getting the roles, you should perform the condition at the first line of the hook function.

You can use Views to achieve this. Under Page Settings change Access to Role & select Anonymous users from the list. Check exported view shown below:

$view = new view();
$view->name = 'user_profiles';
$view->description = '';
$view->tag = 'default';
$view->base_table = 'users';
$view->human_name = 'User Profiles';
$view->core = 7;
$view->api_version = '3.0';
$view->disabled = FALSE; /* Edit this to true to make a default view disabled initially */

/* Display: Master */
$handler = $view->new_display('default', 'Master', 'default');
$handler->display->display_options['title'] = 'User Profiles';
$handler->display->display_options['use_more_always'] = FALSE;
$handler->display->display_options['access']['type'] = 'role';
$handler->display->display_options['access']['role'] = array(
  1 => '1',
);
$handler->display->display_options['cache']['type'] = 'none';
$handler->display->display_options['query']['type'] = 'views_query';
$handler->display->display_options['exposed_form']['type'] = 'basic';
$handler->display->display_options['pager']['type'] = 'full';
$handler->display->display_options['pager']['options']['items_per_page'] = '10';
$handler->display->display_options['style_plugin'] = 'table';
/* Field: User: Uid */
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['uid']['id'] = 'uid';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['uid']['table'] = 'users';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['uid']['field'] = 'uid';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['uid']['label'] = '';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['uid']['exclude'] = TRUE;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['uid']['element_label_colon'] = FALSE;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['uid']['link_to_user'] = FALSE;
/* Field: User: Name */
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['id'] = 'name';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['table'] = 'users';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['field'] = 'name';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['alter']['make_link'] = TRUE;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['alter']['path'] = 'user-profile/[uid]';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['alter']['word_boundary'] = FALSE;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['alter']['ellipsis'] = FALSE;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['link_to_user'] = FALSE;
/* Sort criterion: User: Created date */
$handler->display->display_options['sorts']['created']['id'] = 'created';
$handler->display->display_options['sorts']['created']['table'] = 'users';
$handler->display->display_options['sorts']['created']['field'] = 'created';
$handler->display->display_options['sorts']['created']['order'] = 'DESC';
/* Filter criterion: User: Active */
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['id'] = 'status';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['table'] = 'users';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['field'] = 'status';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['value'] = '1';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['group'] = 1;
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['status']['expose']['operator'] = FALSE;
/* Filter criterion: User: Roles */
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['rid']['id'] = 'rid';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['rid']['table'] = 'users_roles';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['rid']['field'] = 'rid';
$handler->display->display_options['filters']['rid']['value'] = array(
  5 => '5',
);

/* Display: Page */
$handler = $view->new_display('page', 'Page', 'page');
$handler->display->display_options['path'] = 'user-profiles';

/* Display: Page */
$handler = $view->new_display('page', 'Page', 'page_1');
$handler->display->display_options['defaults']['pager'] = FALSE;
$handler->display->display_options['pager']['type'] = 'some';
$handler->display->display_options['pager']['options']['items_per_page'] = '1';
$handler->display->display_options['pager']['options']['offset'] = '0';
$handler->display->display_options['defaults']['fields'] = FALSE;
/* Field: User: Rendered User */
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['id'] = 'rendered_entity';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['table'] = 'views_entity_user';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['field'] = 'rendered_entity';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['label'] = '';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['element_label_colon'] = FALSE;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['link_to_entity'] = 1;
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['display'] = 'view';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['view_mode'] = 'full';
$handler->display->display_options['fields']['rendered_entity']['bypass_access'] = 1;
$handler->display->display_options['defaults']['arguments'] = FALSE;
/* Contextual filter: User: Uid */
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['id'] = 'uid';
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['table'] = 'users';
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['field'] = 'uid';
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['default_action'] = 'default';
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['default_argument_type'] = 'user';
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['default_argument_options']['user'] = FALSE;
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['summary']['number_of_records'] = '0';
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['summary']['format'] = 'default_summary';
$handler->display->display_options['arguments']['uid']['summary_options']['items_per_page'] = '25';
$handler->display->display_options['path'] = 'user-profile/%';

In my case, I wanted to list user of role field executive.

  • Thanks for your reply but that is not what I am looking for. There must be a cleaner solution to limit anonymous users view site user profiles by role. – Özgür Mar 20 '15 at 9:25
