  • An extension to Doctrine DBAL that can be used to switch between database connections in runtime with Symfony 2, contribute with this project!

If you liked of this library, give me a star =).


  • The package is available on Packagist.
  • The source files is PSR-2 compatible.
  • Autoloading is PSR-4 compatible.
composer require cekurte/doctrinebundle

After, register the bundle in your AppKernel like this:

// app/AppKernel.php

// ...
public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
        // ...
        new Cekurte\DoctrineBundle\CekurteDoctrineBundle(),
        // ...

    // ...
    return $bundles;


Well, firstly you must configure a doctrine database connection. So, add this in your config file.

# app/config/config.yml

# ...
        default_connection: dynamic
                driver:   "%database_driver%"
                host:     "%database_host%"
                port:     "%database_port%"
                dbname:   "%database_name%"
                user:     "%database_user%"
                password: "%database_password%"
                charset:  UTF8
                wrapper_class: "Cekurte\DoctrineBundle\DBAL\ConnectionWrapper"

After that, when you need change the database connection you can retrieve a service id named doctrine.dbal.dynamic_connection and call the method forceSwitch, see the example below.


namespace YourNamespace\YourBundleBundle\Controller;

use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Controller\Controller;

class YourController extends Controller
    public function indexAction()
        // ...

        // Change the current database connection...
