I have a field called event_author, which is a entity reference to user. These are the settings for the view.

They produce the following output.

After I add the filter, there is no result anymore. It seems the entity reference is not matching up with author1.

Why does it happen?

I hover over the field. It says event_author_id. It should be the id of the author, instead of text. Or If I want to use text 'author1' in filter. I need to add a relationship in the view. Like a mysql join.
