I'm trying to create a relationship between a field on a user profile and a field on a content type.

User Profile Company Name - This is an entity reference that pulls names from a Company content type. Product - contains a field company which also pulls from a Company content type.

I'm trying to create a view which will show a user products his company carries. So the view is a user view. Contextual filter is the UID of the logged in user. Now trying to create the relationship to pull in fields from the product content type.

Basically, I'm trying to create a query that will show products where the product.company is equal to the user.companyname.

  4. You should now get the fields of products you could add to the view using the relationship you have built at step #3

  • When Entity API is enabled, you can choose the "show" setting entity, in addition to fields and content.
