I am trying to build a View that lists People's Profiles which are referenced to a Team via a Paragraph (within that Profile) to print out the Name of the Person and other data from the Profile.

The Team content type is for representing a team, with title, picture, and description. Profile content type has a title, name, some other fields, and a paragraph with further role-based data for a team.

Profile

  • Name
  • Body
  • Role_in_Team (Paragraph):
    • Datetime_Start
    • Datetime_End
    • Role_Name
    • Team_Reference (Entity reference to a Team)
    • ...

On a Team node, a view shall show the matching profiles beneath.

I build a view Block with:

  • A contextual Filter with "ID from URL" to relate everything just to the shown team node
  • A relationship with "Team_Reference" to show only paragraphs that are referenced to (this) team (Paragraph uses Team_Reference.)
  • A relationship with "Content using Team_Reference" (with relationship "Team_Reference" within)

The view block shows the correct number of profile entries (that are referenced), but I can't get it to show the profile's names.

How do I get access the parent node's fields of the of the specific paragraph?

Sample output of the view block

This is the exported block.

Paragraphs are just double-layered Entity Reference fields. You want to show backwards information, to show children and grandchildren (Profiles) on Parent/Grandparent (Teams) nodes.

To show "backwards" info you need the "backwards" Relationship. "Backwards" Relationships are named slightly differently from "forward" ones, you need to recognize which of the two for a field you need to use by logic of "something referenced" or "something that is referencing".

Since you have two levels of connections you need to chain 2 "backwards" Relationships in order to get to grandchildren starting from grandparents.

First you need the backwards Relationship for the field between Team and Paragraph, you may have that already. Then you need to add another backwards Relationship, this time for the field between Profile and Paragraph, and make it use the first Relationship I mentioned to chain them.

Now Views has access to all the database tables you want. To show Profile fields add a field you want and make it use the second chained Relationship.

Your Contextual filter seems in good order, but I'm not sure about the second Relationship you mentioned, if you didn't add it for some other purpose you probably need to remove it.

  • Thanks. Your thoughts are helpful. I rebuild the View Step by Step and made it show the 3 Profiles on a Team, but only the first was showing its Name... After a lot of experimenting with anything that can be chosen on the relationship fields I finally reversed the order of relationships. If I am using the relationship between Profile and Paragraph first and onto that the reference between Team and Paragraph, it finally works! Thank you very much. Building such Views sometimes works out of the box and sometimes gives you headaches :-) May 5 at 5:47

Following the prkos' answer, I obtained the following view block.
