I have created fields and grouped together with Field collection module. I have attached the group field (containing 4 fields), to user account settings in : admin/config/people/accounts/fields.

Now I am trying to display the content of this field-collection into a view, however I can not do it!

Views 7.x-3.0-beta3 do not allow me to specify the current user and to get in a table the field-collection contents. How can I get this contents into a view-kind table?

UPDATE: I have seen that Field collection module has a patch for Views module here: Add Views Relationship to Field Collection - patch attached which is already included in Field collection 7.x-1.x-dev. This allows me to have access at field in collection form Views, however is not allowing me to set a custom filter for the entity of which I associate the field collection. I my case is the user ID.

How can I have access to that form views ?

What kind of view are you creating?

Since the collection is being used in the user entity you should create a user view. This will allow you to set the user id filter you want to set.

Once you create that user view you will need to add the field_collection relationship to display those appropriate field.

This is assuming you are using the latest field_collection - dev version. Hope this helps.
