This is a Drupal module that is an extension to drupal core contact forms and defines the European Commission corporate forms.

The OpenEuropa Contact Forms project provides storage for Contact messages in the form of fully-fledged entities using Contact Storage. This messages can then be automatically exported for each available Contact form.


Corporate contact form behaviour can be enabled on the contact form add/edit page, allowing form fields, confirmation message and email values to be defined.


Granular permissions are exposed via contributed modules for handling contact forms and contact message entities:

  • View contact messages
  • Update contact messages
  • Delete contact messages
  • Export contact form messages

Development setup


You can build the development site by running the following steps:

  • Install Virtuoso. The easiest way to do this is by using the OpenEuropa Triple store development Docker container which also pre-imports the main Europa vocabularies.

  • Install the Composer dependencies:

composer install

A post command hook (drupal:site-setup) is triggered automatically after composer install. This will symlink the module in the proper directory within the test site and perform token substitution in test configuration files such as behat.yml.dist.

Please note: project files and directories are symlinked within the test site by using the OpenEuropa Task Runner's Drupal project symlink command.

If you add a new file or directory in the root of the project, you need to re-run drupal:site-setup in order to make sure they are be correctly symlinked.

If you don't want to re-run a full site setup for that, you can simply run:

$ ./vendor/bin/run drupal:symlink-project

* Install test site by running:

$ ./vendor/bin/run drupal:site-install

The development site web root should be available in the build directory.

Using Docker Compose

Alternatively, you can build a development site using Docker and Docker Compose with the provided configuration.

Docker provides the necessary services and tools such as a web server and a database server to get the site running, regardless of your local host configuration.


By default, Docker Compose reads two files, a docker-compose.yml and an optional docker-compose.override.yml file. By convention, the docker-compose.yml contains your base configuration and it's provided by default. The override file, as its name implies, can contain configuration overrides for existing services or entirely new services. If a service is defined in both files, Docker Compose merges the configurations.

Find more information on Docker Compose extension mechanism on the official Docker Compose documentation.


To start, run:

docker-compose up

It's advised to not daemonize docker-compose so you can turn it off (CTRL+C) quickly when you're done working. However, if you'd like to daemonize it, you have to add the flag -d:

docker-compose up -d


docker-compose exec web composer install
docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/run drupal:site-install

Using default configuration, the development site files should be available in the build directory and the development site should be available at:

Running the tests

To run the grumphp checks:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/grumphp run

To run the phpunit tests:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/phpunit

To run the behat tests:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/behat

Working with content

The project ships with the following Task Runner commands to work with content in the RDF store, they require Docker Compose services to be up and running.

Purge all data:

$ docker-compose exec sparql ./vendor/bin/robo purge

Or, if you can run commands on your host machine:

$ ./vendor/bin/run sparql:purge

Import default data:

$ docker-compose exec sparql ./vendor/bin/robo import

Or, if you can run commands on your host machine:

$ ./vendor/bin/run sparql:import

Reset all data, i.e. run purge and import:

$ docker-compose exec sparql ./vendor/bin/robo purge
$ docker-compose exec sparql ./vendor/bin/robo import

Or, if you can run commands on your host machine:

$ ./vendor/bin/run sparql:reset

Step debugging

To enable step debugging from the command line, pass the XDEBUG_SESSION environment variable with any value to the container:

docker-compose exec -e XDEBUG_SESSION=1 web <your command>

Please note that, starting from XDebug 3, a connection error message will be outputted in the console if the variable is set but your client is not listening for debugging connections. The error message will cause false negatives for PHPUnit tests.

To initiate step debugging from the browser, set the correct cookie using a browser extension or a bookmarklet like the ones generated at
