When editing a record, the backend SiteResolver is not able to determine the current site because the id parameter is not set. This is for instance needed if you have a user function display condition where you want to show a field depending on a site configuration.

We worked around this by using an XCLASS to extend the current SiteResolver implementation with the following. It would be nice if this fix or probably something more robust would find its way into the core!

thanks for creating the issue!

While I agree that the the Site can't be found in the middleware, what about using the Formengine to decide which field should be shown or not? \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Form\FormDataProvider\SiteResolving will resolve the site and you will have the information available when building custom formengine elements?

Thanks for your response! I was not aware of that possibility, using the Formengine is probably the better way to solve that particular issue. However I am not yet sure whether this is a valid issue nevertheless. I think it would be best if the SiteResolver could resolve the site in order for it to be available in any part of the code (including user functions). But on the other hand the site can always be easily resolved any time we have a data record and it's pid at hand.

Yeah, there are parts where a site cannot be resolved (e.g. editing multiple records from the search in different sites), but for the time being this can't be addressed as a "Bug". There are a couple of more steps moving towards resolving the Site properly in the request (e.g. related to the ConditionMatcher), so this will be a bigger topic - probably for v11 then.
