@Config

This annotation is used to configure default values for configurable entity classes.

Options

defaultValues

Configures default values for particular config options on a per property basis:

// ...
use Oro\Bundle\EntityConfigBundle\Metadata\Annotation\Config;

/**
 * @Config(
 *      defaultValues={
 *          "dataaudit"={
 *              "auditable"=true
 *          }
 *      }
 * )
 */
class User
{
    // ...
}

This example sets the auditable option from the dataaudit scope to true for the User class.

You can use``immutable`` on any settings. This attribute can be used to prohibit changing the association state.

activity

This parameter sets default settings for OroActivityBundle. This bundle helps classify certain entity types as activities and enables a special relation type between an entity and activities. For more information, see OroActivityBundle.

  • show_on_page integer - is used to change a page, which will display the “activity list” and activity buttons. Can be used as bitmask. Possible values are in \Oro\Bundle\ActivityBundle\EntityConfig\ActivityScope::VIEW_PAGE.
  • route string - is the route name for the controller that can be used to render the list of this type of activities. This controller must have $entityClass and $entityId. Parameters to pass the target entity. This attribute must be defined for each activity entity (an entity included in the ‘activity’ group, see ‘grouping’ scope).
  • acl string - is used to check whether this type of activity is available in the current security context.
  • action_button_widget string - is the widget name of the activity action used to render a button. This widget should be defined in placeholders.yml. This attribute can be defined for the activity entity. Please note that an activity should provide both action_link_widget and action_link_widget, because actions can be rendered both as a button as a dropdown menu.
  • action_link_widget string - is the widget name of the activity action used to render a link in the dropdown menu. This widget should be defined in placeholders.yml. This attribute can be defined for the activity entity. Please note that an activity should provide both action_link_widget and action_link_widget, because actions can be rendered as a button as a dropdown menu.
  • activities string[] - is the list of activities’ class names that can be assigned to the entity.
  • inheritance_targets string[] - are target entity classes whose activities will be shown in the current entity. If entity 1 has relation with entity 2 and activity is enabled for both of them, we can configure entity 1 using this option to show activities from related entity 2. In the example of the configuration for unidirectional relations below, we are going to join the “user” relation to the “Test” entity through the “Example” entity relation:
[
   [target] => Oro\Bundle\ExampleBundle\Entity\Test
   [path] => [
       [0] => [
              [join] => Oro\Bundle\ExampleBundle\Entity\Example
              [conditionType] => WITH
              [field] => test_id
      ],
      [1] => user
   ]
]
  • priority integer - can be used to change the order of this type of activity on the UI.
  • immutable boolean or array - is used to prohibit changing the activity state (regardless of whether it is enabled or not) for the entity. If TRUE, then activity state cannot be changed. It can also be an array with the list of class names of activities whose state cannot be changed.

  • enabled boolean - indicates whether attachments can be added to the entity or not.
  • maxsize integer - is the max size of the uploaded file in megabytes.

  • auto_link_attachments boolean - if TRUE, then Email Attachments are saved to the Attachment Entity.
  • immutable boolean - can be used to prohibit changing the attachment association state (regardless of whether it is enabled or not) for the entity. If TRUE than the current state cannot be changed.

enum

This attribute is only used for Enum parameters.

  • code string - a unique identifier of this enum.

  • multiple boolean - Indicates whether several options can be selected for this enum or it supports only one selected option.

  • immutable boolean or array - is used to prohibit changing the list of enum values and a public flag. This means that values cannot be added or deleted, but it is still possible to update the names of existing values, reorder them and change the default values. Below are examples of possible values:

    • false or empty array - no any restrictions
    • true - means that all constraints are applied, so it will not be allowed to add/delete options and change ‘public’ flag
    • ‘add’, ‘delete’, ‘public’ - the same as true; it will not be allowed to add/delete options and change ‘public’ flag
    • ‘delete’ - it is not allowed to delete options, but new options can be added and ‘public’ can be changed

  • table string - is the table name for a custom entity. This is optional attribute. If it is not specified, the table name is generated automatically.

  • inherit string - is the parent class name. You are not usually requires to specify this attribute as it is calculated automatically for regular extend and custom entities. An example of an entity where this attribute is used is EnumValue.

  • pending_changes - when a user changes something that requires schema update, this change is not applied to the configuration, but is stored into “pending_changes” as changeset. The format of changeset is [‘scope’ => [‘field’ => [‘oldValue’, ‘newValue’], ...], ...].

    Let’s assume that a user has an active activity email and changes it to a task. In this case, the value of pending changes would be the following:

    'activity' => [
        'activities' => [
            ['Oro\Bundle\EmailBundle\Entity\Email'],
            ['Oro\Bundle\TaskBundle\Entity\Task'],
