Feature flag

You can now define feature flag in environment global variables.

How to use it

You can use feature flag to easily switch off/on parts of TAO functionality.

Feature flag name

It is import tht we will use FEATURE_FLAG prefix for our feature flags to recognise them and they prupose in environment variable list.


To hide/show form fields you can extend AbstractFeatureFlagFormPropertyMapper with your configurable service that has OPTION_FEATURE_FLAG_FORM_FIELDS mapped to list of fields that you want to hide/show.

use oat\taoLti\models\classes\LtiProvider\FeatureFlagFormPropertyMapper;    

return new FeatureFlagFormPropertyMapper(
        FeatureFlagFormPropertyMapper::OPTION_FEATURE_FLAG_FORM_FIELDS => [
                'formField_01' => [

This configuration will display formField_01 when FEATURE_FLAG_NAME is enabled


tao/SectionVisibilityFilter is responsible for listing sections that can be disabled from user. In order to add more sections that have to be disabled/enabled based on feature flag.


return new oat\tao\model\menu\SectionVisibilityFilter(array(
    'featureFlagSections' => [
        'sectionName' => [

This configuration will display sectionName when FETURE_FLAG_01 is enabled.



Webhooks allow you to send a request to remote server based on triggered event

How to use it

Register event webhook.

use command \oat\tao\scripts\tools\RegisterEventWebhook to register events that are implementing \oat\tao\model\webhooks\configEntity\WebhookInterface interface.


$ php index.php 'oat\tao\scripts\tools\RegisterEventWebhook' 
    \ -u "https://example.com"
    \ -m "POST"
    \ -e "<<Class FQN>>"

Check ACL Permissions

In order to check ACL permissions, you can use the PermissionChecker:

$permissionChecker = $this->getServiceLocator()->get(oat\tao\model\accessControl\PermissionChecker::class);


Important: It takes into consideration the current user in the session, if no user is provided.

Roles Access (rules and action permissions)


Script allow you to apply (add)/revoke (remove) list of rules and/or permissions to a specific roles and actions.

How to use it

Execute the following command to apply (add) new rules/permissions:

$ php index.php 'oat\tao\scripts\tools\accessControl\SetRolesAccess' \
--config [config.json|json_string]

If you want to revoke (remove) them, add --revoke flag:

$ php index.php 'oat\tao\scripts\tools\accessControl\SetRolesAccess' \
--revoke \
--config [config.json|json_string]

        "role": [
                "ext": "extensionIdentifier",
