A Symfony bundle for AutoMapper+. To see it in action, check out the demo app.

Table of Contents


The bundle is available on packagist:

$ composer require mark-gerarts/automapper-plus-bundle

Don't forget to register the bundle:

$bundles = [
    new AutoMapperPlus\AutoMapperPlusBundle\AutoMapperPlusBundle(),
    // ...


The automapper is available as a service: automapper_plus.mapper (or just type hint the AutoMapperPlus\AutoMapperInterface).

You can register mapping configurations by creating a class that implements the AutoMapperConfiguratorInterface. This configurator class will have to define a configure method, that gets passed the configuration object:


namespace Demo;

use AutoMapperPlus\AutoMapperPlusBundle\AutoMapperConfiguratorInterface;
use AutoMapperPlus\Configuration\AutoMapperConfigInterface;
use Demo\Model\Employee\Employee;
use Demo\Model\Employee\EmployeeDto;

class AutoMapperConfig implements AutoMapperConfiguratorInterface
    public function configure(AutoMapperConfigInterface $config): void
        $config->registerMapping(Employee::class, EmployeeDto::class)
            ->forMember('fullName', function (Employee $source) {
                return $source->getFirstName() . ' ' . $source->getLastName();

        // And so on..

If you use autowiring, the configurators will be picked up automatically. Alternatively, you'll have to register the class as a service and tag it with automapper_plus.configurator. You can optionally add a priority parameter to the tag.

    class: Demo\AutoMapperConfig
    tags: ['automapper_plus.configurator']

You can register all your mappings in a single configurator class, or spread it across multiple classes. The choice is yours!


The options for the mapper can be configured. Create a config/packages/automapper_plus.yaml file (or add to your config.yaml for older Symfony versions) with the following contents:

        create_unregistered_mappings: true

These options correspond with the ones of the Options object.

Full reference (Not all options are supported at the moment, more coming soon!):

        # These options are example values, and not necessarily the default
        # ones. If an option is not provided, the base library's default will
        # be used.
        create_unregistered_mappings: true
        skip_constructor: true
        use_substitution: true
        ignore_null_properties: false
        # Note that this should be the service name, and not necessarily the
        # FQCN.
        property_accessor: AutoMapperPlus\AutoMapperPlusBundle\PropertyAccessor\SymfonyPropertyAccessorBridge

Using the configuration is completely optional, you can just set the options directly on the Options object in one of your configurators using $config->getOptions().

Symfony property accessors

The bundle contains a bridge for the Symfony PropertyAccessor. It provides 2 variants:

  • The SymfonyPropertyAccessorBridge is basically only the functionality of Symfony's component, meaning you can NOT set private properties directly (which is a good thing if you want to be more strict).
  • The DecoratedPropertyAccessor uses the Symfony property access, but falls back to the default in case of failure. This means private properties will be handled, even if they don't have a getter/setter.

Both options provide allow to use fromProperty with full property paths, e.g. forMember('aProperty', Operation::fromProperty('some.nested[child]'));. Note that other usages of property paths have not been tested and are not guaranteed to work. It will be investigated in the 2.x release (related issue).

Sample service definition:

            $propertyAccessor: '@property_accessor'

In your automapper_plus.yaml configuration:

        property_accessor: 'AutoMapperPlus\AutoMapperPlusBundle\PropertyAccessor\SymfonyPropertyAccessorBridge'
