I've created a view which is displaying time tracking information. Everything works great except one thing and I can't figure out what the issue is. I have an exposed filter which filters by authorname. The filter by default is an autocomplete text field. When I am logged in as an admin role, the autocomplete works as it should, however when I am logged in as an authenticated user, that filter stops working. All my other exposed filters work, except this one. I am assuming it is a permissions issue, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what I need to enable to allow a regular user use this filter.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am using D7 with Views.

  • it may be the "View user profiles" permission? Nov 1, 2012 at 16:33
  • The permission "view published content" and also "View user profiles" have been checked off. I realized after that the autocomplete is actually showing up, however, unlike the admin user, the autocomplete suggestion drop down shows up near the top of the page. So I wasn't seeing it because it was showing up off the page. It's weird. As an admin, this doesn't happen. Also I am using a standard Bartik theme with no modifications as I am in a testing state.

I just installed the Administration Views module and ran into this issue. Setting the "View user profiles" permission fixed the problem. Thanks @Marius Ilie.
