README

Allows Mautic users to define Custom Objects with custom fields. Then create multiple custom items of each type and associate them to the Contact or Company entities.

You'll be able to

  • filter Segments by values in the Custom Objects
  • create Campaign conditions based on the values in the Custom Objects

Workflow Update

Until Github Actions' CI/CD are in place, we request to developers to:

  1. Merge their unreviewed and unapproved PRs to development branch.
  2. Merge their reviewed and approved PRs to beta branch.

Glossary

  • Custom Field represents one piece of information. Example: Price, Description, Color
  • Custom Object is set of custom fields that will allow users to create multiple instances of this object. Example: Product, Invoice.
  • Custom Item is created when Custom Object fields are populated with specific information. Example: Mautic T-shirt, Invoice 2022-02-22-123.

Example Usage

As an example we can create a Custom Object Product. To create one go to the right hand side admin menu. This Custom Object will have these custom fields:

  • Name is always there by default. No need to create a custom field for it.
  • Price (Number field)
  • Description (Textarea field)
  • Color (Select box with options: Red, Green, Blue)

Once we save such Custom Object then on the left hand side menu we'll be able to see new Product menu item and we'll be able to start creating new product custom items:

Product 1: Name: Mautic T-shirt Price: $123 Description: Great T-shirt to support your favorite project and market it whenever you walk! Color: Blue

Product 2: Name: Mautic Hoodie Price: $153 Description: Great hoodie to support your favorite project and market it whenever you walk and stay worm at the same time! Color: Red

Once some of your contacts buy a Mautic T-shirt or hoodie you can link them with the product they've bought. You can automate that with a Mautic Campaign action, API or CSV import. Once these links are established you'll be able to build Segments based on who bought what, or if they for example bought products with price greater than $100 or products of red color. Then your automated workflows can hit the right audience.

Requirements

  • Plugin supports PHP 7.1+.

Tests

The plugin has currently test coverage of 91%. Each new PR must be covered by tests to be considered to be merged. To run the tests execute composer test -- --filter CustomObjects from the Mautic root dir.

Static Analysis

PHPSTAN is used for static analysis. Here is how to run it locally from the Mautic's root dir:

bin/phpstan --configuration=plugins/CustomObjectsBundle/phpstan.neon

This plugin has its own PHPSTAN configuration because there is too big tech debt pile already and so it must have its own PHPSTAN baseline file.

The tech debt is visible in the phpstan-baseline.neon file and can be regenerated with:

bin/phpstan --configuration=plugins/CustomObjectsBundle/phpstan.neon --generate-baseline=plugins/CustomObjectsBundle/phpstan-baseline.neon && sed -i 's/plugins\/CustomObjectsBundle\//g' plugins/CustomObjectsBundle/phpstan-neon.php

Please do not add more tech debt on this pile. Fix all the new PHPSTAN errors and possibly some old ones with your code changes.
