I'm trying to implement some custom access control for user entities, in Drupal 7.
hook_entity_info_alter to set
$entity_info['user']['access callback'] = 'MYMODULE_user_access_callback';
and when I call
entity_get_info at a later point, I can see that this is still successfully set.
MYMODULE_user_access_callback never ever seems to get called when I try to display users directly, or load Views of users.
It looks like the custom access callbacks are normally called from the
entity_access function in entity.module. But the
user_access function in user.module doesn't ever call them.
user_load in the user module calls
entity_load, which calls
but this still doesn't seem to invoke
So is setting
'access callback' for the user entity a wrong way to go about trying to implement custom user access control? Do I need to override
