eZ Publish 5/Platform bundle wrapping eZ Unique Datatypes extension for eZ Publish 4.0.

This is a collection of common datatypes whose validation has been extended so to verify their uniqueness within given content object attribute. Otherwise, these datatypes behave exactly as their prototypes.

Currently there are two datatypes provided:

  • Unique string (based on Text line system datatype),
  • Unique URL (based on URL system datatype).

Fields using these datatypes can be displayed using the Symfony stack. To edit them you need to use the legacy stack.

Requires eZ Publish 5 or eZ Platform.


  1. You can use composer to install the bundle. If you have eZ Platform, use version 2:

    composer require --update-no-dev --prefer-dist "eab/unique-datatypes-bundle":"~2.0"

    If you have eZ Publish 5, use version 1:

    composer require --update-no-dev --prefer-dist "eab/unique-datatypes-bundle":"~1.0"

    Or clone the bundle using git:

     cd src
     git clone https://github.com/eab-dev/UniqueDatatypesBundle.git Eab/UniqueDatatypesBundle
  2. Edit the file ezpublish/EzPublishKernel.php, look for the function registerBundles() and add:

    new Eab\UniqueDatatypesBundle\EabUniqueDatatypesBundle(),
  3. Run (in Windows you should be administrator to create symlinks):

    php ezpublish/console ezpublish:legacybundles:install_extensions
    php ezpublish/console ezpublish:legacy:script bin/php/ezpgenerateautoloads.php
    php ezpublish/console cache:clear --no-warmup --env=prod
  4. Use eZ Publish's admin interface to add a field using this datatype to a content type and create some content.
