Dialogflow Enterprise Edition is the enterprise tier of Dialogflow which is a natural language understanding platform that makes it easy for you to design and integrate a conversational user interface into your mobile app, web application, device, bot, and so on. Using Dialogflow you can provide users new and engaging ways to interact with your product using both voice recognition and text input.


To begin, install the preferred dependency manager for PHP, Composer.

Now to install just this component:

$ composer require google/cloud-dialogflow

Or to install the entire suite of components at once:

$ composer require google/cloud

This component supports both REST over HTTP/1.1 and gRPC. In order to take advantage of the benefits offered by gRPC (such as streaming methods) please see our gRPC installation guide.


Please see our Authentication guide for more information on authenticating your client. Once authenticated, you'll be ready to start making requests.


require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Google\Cloud\Dialogflow\V2\EntityTypesClient;

$entityTypesClient = new EntityTypesClient();
$projectId = '[MY_PROJECT_ID]';
$entityTypeId = '[ENTITY_TYPE_ID]';
$formattedEntityTypeName = $entityTypesClient->entityTypeName($projectId, $entityTypeId);

$entityType = $entityTypesClient->getEntityType($formattedEntityTypeName);
foreach ($entityType->getEntities() as $entity) {
    printf('Entity value: %s' . PHP_EOL, $entity->getValue());
    print('Synonyms: ');
    foreach ($entity->getSynonyms() as $synonym) {
        print($synonym . "\t");


This component is considered beta. As such, it should be expected to be mostly stable and we're working towards a release candidate. We will address issues and requests with a higher priority.
