README

SerializationGroupBundle provides a way to organize serialization groups through configuration.

It is useful to use with Symfony Serializer component or JMS Serializer.

1. Installation

Install the bundle through composer, then add it to your AppKernel.php file :

$bundles = array(
    // ...
    new Gl3n\SerializationGroupBundle\Gl3nSerializationGroupBundle(),
);

2. Configuration

Here is a sample configuration :

gl3n_serialization_group:
    groups:
        group2:
            roles: [ROLE_USER]
        group3:
            roles: [ROLE_ADMIN]
            include: [group2]
        group4:
            roles: [ROLE_SUPER_ADMIN]
            include: [group1, group3]

You can fill on each group :

  • roles (optional) : an array of security roles allowed to use this group
  • include (optional) : an array of included groups

3. Usage

Call the serialization group resolver (gl3n_serialization_group.resolver) in order to get the built groups list.

For example, with the previous sample configuration :

// Resolving group1 returns ['group1']
$groups = $resolver->resolve('group1');

// Resolving group3 returns ['group2', 'group3']
$groups = $resolver->resolve('group3');

// Resolving group4 returns ['group1', 'group2', 'group3', 'group4']
$groups = $resolver->resolve('group4');

3.1. Authorization checker

Security roles are checked during resolution. If user has not the required role a Symfony\Component\Security\Core\Exception\AccessDeniedException is thrown.

3.2. Example

You can organise entity serialization groups by size (small, medium, large) and serialize several entities at once like that :

# config.yml
gl3n_serialization_group:
    groups:
        book_M:
            roles: [ROLE_USER]
            include: [book_S, author_S]
        book_L:
            roles: [ROLE_ADMIN]
            include: [book_M, author_M]
        author_M:
            include: [author_S]

In this example, a book has one or many authors.
