I have a taxonomy term that gets assigned to a content type via entity reference, and the Drupal user, via Profile 2.

I want to add a filter to a content view that matches the 2 up, so if you filled in your user profile saying you only interested in x, have a view that only show content that was assigned with the same term.

I have tried adding author, profile2, taxonomy term relationships etc without any luck. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

I managed to solve this: The key is to start with an User View.

Add Relationship -> User: Profile
Pick the profile where the taxonomy was assigned.

Add Relationship -> Content: Taxonomy terms on node
Pick your vocabulary.

Add Relationship -> User: Content authored
Add Contextual filter -> Content: Has taxonomy term ID

Choose PHP as a Provide default value option:

global $user;
$profiles = profile2_load_by_user($user);
    foreach ($profiles as $profile) {
      if ($items = field_get_items('profile2', $profile, 'field_your_interests')) {
$tids = array();
foreach ($items as $item) {
  $tids[] = $item['tid'];
return implode('+', $tids);

Then add the fields and additional filters as needed.
