GitHub | Packagist | Changelog

This bundle is a connector bundle for the relay-blob-bundle to store blob data on the filesystem. It implements the DatasystemProviderServiceInterface of the blob bundle. It can save files to a specific path, rename those files, remove those files, or return short-lived share-links.


You need the DbpRelayBlob bundle installed to make this bundle working, see DbpRelayBlobBundle.

Bundle installation

You can install the bundle directly from packagist.org.

composer require dbp/relay-blob-connector-filesystem-bundle

Integration into the Relay API Server

  • Add the bundle to your config/bundles.php in front of DbpRelayCoreBundle:
Dbp\Relay\BlobBundle\DbpRelayBlobConnectorFilesystemBundle::class => ['all' => true],
Dbp\Relay\BlobBundle\DbpRelayBlobBundle::class => ['all' => true],
Dbp\Relay\CoreBundle\DbpRelayCoreBundle::class => ['all' => true],

If you were using the DBP API Server Template as template for your Symfony application, then this should have already been generated for you.

  • Run composer install to clear caches


The bundle has multiple configuration values that you can specify in your app, either by hard-coding it, or by referencing an environment variable.

For this create config/packages/dbp_relay_blob_connector_filesystem.yaml in the app with the following content:

  path: '%kernel.project_dir%/var/blobFiles' # path where files should be placed
  link_url: 'http://localhost:8000/' # base link_url of the api

For more info on bundle configuration see https://symfony.com/doc/current/bundles/configuration.html.

Bundle dependencies

Don't forget you need to pull down your dependencies in your main application if you are installing packages in a bundle.

# updates and installs dependencies of dbp/relay-blob-bundle and dbp/relay-blob-connector-filesystem-bundle
composer update dbp/relay-blob-bundle
composer update dbp/relay-blob-connector-filesystem-bundle


Database migration

Run this script to migrate the database. Run this script after installation of the bundle and after every update to adapt the database to the new source code.

php bin/console doctrine:migrations:migrate --em=dbp_relay_blob_connector_filesystem_bundle
