I have a total of 770 users, 760 with the custom role of "certified provider", 10 with the role of "certified administrator".

Using views, and relationships I am able to allow the certified provider to each see only their own created nodes. But I need the "certified administrator" to see ALL nodes from ALL providers. I have a relationship of Content:Author, and filter of User:Current. I have read everything I can get my hands on to figure out what to do and where to go next.

Have tried to follow https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20840490/drupal7-filter-view-based-on-current-users-roles But haven't been able to get the filter values to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • How about just remove the filter of User:Current?

  • @Jimmy Ko When I remove the filter User:Current, then all the nodes are visible to all users.

When dealing with multiple roles, make sure the access control module has all the correct control settings. In Admin->structure->Content Type->Access Control I had the "View any **Content Type** content" checked. As soon as I removed that, the suggestion by @Jimmy Ko, worked, Thanks Jimmy. Easy to overlook when you have 3 different places where the content type is limited.
