I am trying to assign a group from currently logged in user(One group in assigned only) to a newly created individual.

function search_civicrm_post($op, $objectName, $objectId, &$objectRef){ {

$getContactId = (int) CRM_Core_Session::singleton()->getLoggedInContactID();

try {
    $result = civicrm_api3('GroupContact', 'getsingle', [
        'return' => ["group_id"],
        'contact_id' => $getContactId,
catch (CRM_Exception $e) {
    echo "error";

$getGroupId = $result['group_id'];
$recentContactId= '';
$query ="INSERT INTO `civicrm_group_contact` (`group_id`, `contact_id`, `status`) VALUES ('.$getGroupId', '$recentContactId','Added')";

But problem is that how will I get the id of recently added individuals;


If I understand it correctly you want to add contact (New individual) to a group of logged in user, then i would write something like this

function search_civicrm_pre($op, $objectName, $id, &$params) {
  if ($objectName == 'Individual' && $op == 'create) {
    $groups = civicrm_api3('Contact', 'getsingle', [
      'return' => "group",
      'id' => 'user_contact_id',
    foreach (explode(',', $groups) as $groupId) {
      $params['group'][$groupId] = 1;

  • Hello Pradip Sir, I successfully fetch the group id of currently logged in contact(Only one group is there). When I am adding a new Individual it must attach a group of currently logged in contact. How can I do that? I am not getting a solution. – Dipak Giri Jan 8 '19 at 10:41
  • Did you try above snippet? – Pradeep Nayak Jan 8 '19 at 10:43
  • Yes. Give an error "field group unset or not existing" – Dipak Giri Jan 8 '19 at 10:49

    pre() hook is used to alter the params which is used for creating a contact. You can pass additional params likes groups, tags etc since the BAO handles it correctly. In short pre() hook is invoked just before a contact is created and post after a contact. – Pradeep Nayak Jan 8 '19 at 11:35
