How to do I create a filter on my view that filters based on the value of one field being equal to the name of the currently logged in user? The field is static.

  • Can you describe the question little bit more. What i understood you want to show a list of records/record based on user login.

  • As per my assumption I believe you can achieve using contextual filter.

You can use contextual filter, as suggested by DRUPWAY in his comment.

  1. Add a new contextual filter
  2. Select the field to use
  3. For When the filter value is NOT in the URL, select Provide value, and then PHP code for Type
  4. In PHP contextual filter code, enter the following code
    global $user;
    return $user->name;

For the user ID, it would be simpler: In step 3, you would select User ID from logged in user.

In view Relationships add "author" then in FILTER CRITERIA Add (User: Current) and select (yes) in "Is the logged in user"..

  • Hi @a.alshamiri, please try not to provide one-sentence answers. If possible provide a step-by-step guide with screenshots of each step, or of the final configuration screen. Thanks! Feb 13 '17 at 15:29
  • But the field I want to match isn't author.

In Drupal 8 you can just use the module:
