#44169 new enhancement

New filter to short circuit WP_User_Query results

#41700 added the filter posts_pre_query to WP_Query. This filter lets you short circuit the WP_Query MySQL query to return your own results. We use this filter in ElasticPress to return results from Elasticsearch instead of MySQL.

This ticket (patch incoming) is to add a similar filter to WP_User_Query.

@tlovett1 Thanks for the patch.

It passes the current unit tests for the user group.

I will mark that this will need unit tests, if this goes forward.

Regarding the use cases, I can imagine this would be mostly used to override the search query of WP_User_Query, both front and backend?

I wonder if this could affect other processes? I don't think WP_User_Query is used during the login progress, but one could e.g. test what happens if WP_User_Query returns no users at all, during login.

ps: It seems that posts_pre_query was introduced to WP_Query ticket #36687.
