OroNotificationBundle extends the OroEmailBundle capabilities and enables the email notification feature in Oro applications. It provides the UI and CLI tool to send and manage email notifications.

Console Commands 

The oro:maintenance-notification command sends an email notification to the recipients listed in System Configuration > General Setup > Email Configuration > Maintenance Notifications > Recipients.

If the recipient list in the system configuration is left empty, the notification will be sent to all active application users.

php bin/console oro:maintenance-notification --env=prod

The text of the message can be provided either as the value of the --message option or it can be read from a text file specified in the –file option:

php bin/console oro:maintenance-notification --message=<message-text> --env=prod
php bin/console oro:maintenance-notification --file=<path-to-text-file> --env=prod

The --subject option can be used to override the default subject provided by the configured email template:

php bin/console oro:maintenance-notification --message=<message> --subject=<subject> --env=prod

The --sender_name and --sender_email options can be used to override the default name and email address of the sender:

php bin/console oro:maintenance-notification --message=<message> --sender_name=<name> --sender_email=<email> --env=prod

Create Notification Rule 

For detailed steps on how to create a notification rule, please see user documentation.

Contact Emails enables you to check recipients stored in the entity fields marked as Contact Information > Email.


For more information about configuring such fields, see Create Entity Fields.

When you create the rule, specify the events that will create jobs for the consumer to submit emails chosen in the Recipient list group. Make sure that the consumer is running.

Extend Additional Associations 

To add new associations to Additional Associations group, create a class that implements AdditionalEmailAssociationProviderInterface and registered in the DI container with the oro_notification.additional_email_association_provider tag.

An example:

  1. Create an additional associations provider:

    class MyAdditionalEmailAssociationProvider implements AdditionalEmailAssociationProviderInterface
        public function getAssociations(string $entityClass): array
            if (!is_a($entityClass, MyEntity::class, true)) {
                return [];
            return [
                'someAccociation' => [
                    'label'        => $this->translator->trans('acme.my_entity.some_accociation'),
                    'target_class' => MyTargetEntity::class
        public function isAssociationSupported($entity, string $associationName): bool
                $entity instanceof MyEntity
                && 'someAccociation' === $associationName;
        public function getAssociationValue($entity, string $associationName)
            $targetEntity = get target entity logic
            return $targetEntity;
  2. Register the provider in the DI container:

            class: Acme\Bundle\AcmeBundle\Provider\MyAdditionalEmailAssociationProvider
            public: false
                - { name: oro_notification.additional_email_association_provider }

Register an Event to Send Notification Emails 

To allow creating notification rules for new types of events, register them in the Resources/config/oro/app.yml file in your bundle.

         - my_custom_event_2
