I've got a site with multiple domains using Domain Access. I want to display a search form on each site that searches for users on that site.

I'm using a modified version of the code here (that code works fine when searching for nodes) but it doesn't work. When searching it always return an empty result.

Here's my code:

* Implements hook_entity_property_info_alter().
* Adds an entity property for the domain access of the user.
function custom_search_users_entity_property_info_alter(&$info) {
  $properties = &$info['user']['properties'];

  $properties['custom_search_users_domain_access'] = array(
    'label' => t('Domain Access Information'),
    'description' => t('The domains to which the user has access.'),
    'type' => 'list<integer>',
    'getter callback' => 'custom_search_users_get_domain_info',

function custom_search_users_get_domain_info($data, array $options, $name, $type, $info) {
  return (!empty($data->domain_user) ? $data->domain_user : NULL);

* Implements hook_search_api_query_alter().
* Adds a filter for the current domain.
function custom_search_users_search_api_query_alter(SearchApiQueryInterface $query) {
  $domain = domain_get_domain();

  $query->condition('custom_search_users_domain_access', $domain['domain_id']);

So basically what I've changed in my code is the use of $data->domain_user instead of $data->domain to comply with the user object.

Anyone got any idea of why this doesn't work?


I think your approach is just fine, but you forgot to index your field. You've to check the field you created on the field page (admin/config/search/search_api/index/**your_index**/fields)

enter image description here

Once checked, you'll be able to index your extra field and by so, filter on domain.
