The Batch API provides a way to create or update a list of entities of the same type via one API request.
Enable Batch API for Entity
By default, Batch API is disabled for all API resources. To enable it for an API resource,
the update_list action should be enabled for this resource.
This can be done via
actions section for an entity in Resources/config/oro/api.yml.
api: entities: Oro\Bundle\UserBundle\Entity\User: actions: update_list: true
Batch API Configuration
All configuration options related to Batch API are grouped in
batch_api section of ApiBundle configuration:
oro_api: batch_api: # The default maximum number of entities that can be saved in a chunk. The default value is 100. chunk_size: 100 # The maximum number of entities of a specific type that can be saved in a chunk. chunk_size_per_entity: Oro\Bundle\UserBundle\Entity\User: 10 # example # The default maximum number of included entities that can be saved in a chunk. The default value is 50. included_data_chunk_size: 50 # The maximum number of included entities that can be saved in a chunk for a specific primary entity type. included_data_chunk_size_per_entity: Oro\Bundle\UserBundle\Entity\User: 20 # example
included_data_chunk_size_per_entity can be used to tuning of
an API engine to have maximum performance.
To get maximum performance in requests with included entities, the value of the
parameter can be changed to the medium number of related entities that will be set to one primary entity when processing
Asynchronous Batch Operations Cleanup Configuration
Obsolete asynchronous batch operations are removed once a day by a cron job.
The default configuration of this cron job is illustrated below:
oro_api: batch_api: async_operation: # The number of days async operations are stored in the system. lifetime: 30 # The maximum number of seconds that the cron job can spend in one run. cleanup_process_timeout: 3600 # 1 hour
The KnpGaufretteBundle is used to configure storages for source data files of Batch API requests and all files that are created when processing asynchronous batch operations (e.g. chunk files, error files, etc.).
Here is the default configuration of these storages:
knp_gaufrette: adapters: api: doctrine_dbal: connection_name: batch table: oro_api_async_data columns: key: name content: content mtime: updated_at checksum: checksum filesystems: # a storage for source data files api_source_data: adapter: private alias: api_source_data_filesystem # a storage for files created when processing asynchronous batch operations api: adapter: api alias: api_filesystem
To change the adapter configuration the Resources/config/oro/app.yml in any bundle or config/config.yml of your application can be used. The following example shows how to reconfigure this adapter to use a local filesystem:
knp_gaufrette: adapters: api: local: directory: '%kernel.project_dir%/var/api_files'
More examples can be found in KnpGaufretteBundle documentation.
