@RequestBody annotation

RequestBody is a way to populate objects and inject them as controller method arguments.

The Request body converter makes it possible to deserialize the request body into an object.

Install

composer require paveldanilin/request-body-bundle

Usage

By default, RequestBody is trying to populate the single defined parameter.

/**
 * @Route("/users", methods={"POST"})
 *
 * @RequestBody
 *
 * @param User $user
 * @return Response
 */
public function createUser(User $user): Response
{
    return new Response();
}

If a method has several parameters we should explicitly define the parameter for populating.

/**
 * @Route("/users", methods={"PATCH"})
 *
 * @RequestBody("user")
 *
 * @param int $userId
 * @param User $user
 * @return Response
 */
public function editUser(int $userId, User $user): Response
{
    return new Response();
}

Deserialization

We can specify a deserialization context.

More about the object deserialization you can find here

/**
 * @Route("/users", methods={"PATCH"})
 *
 * @RequestBody("user", deserializationContext={"someAttribute"="value"})
 *
 * @param int $userId
 * @param User $user
 * @return Response
 */
public function editUser(int $userId, User $user): Response
{
    return new Response();
}

Also, it is possible to replace the deserialization error message with a custom message.

/**
 * @Route("/users", methods={"PATCH"})
 *
 * @RequestBody("user", deserializationError="Bad DTO")
 *
 * @param int $userId
 * @param User $user
 * @return Response
 */
public function editUser(int $userId, User $user): Response
{
    return new Response();
}

Validation

By default, validation will be performed for each assertion which is defined per DTO.

For the following DTO will be performed two assertions after a deserialization process.

class User
{
    /**
     * @Assert\NotBlank(allowNull=false)
     * @Assert\Type(type="string")
     *
     * @var string
     */
    public $name;
}

We can avoid a validation process by defining the validationGroups attribute as an empty array.

/**
 * @Route("/users", methods={"PATCH"})
 *
 * @RequestBody("user", validationGroups={})
 *
 * @param int $userId
 * @param User $user
 * @return Response
 */
public function editUser(int $userId, User $user): Response
{
    return new Response();
}

Or we can explicitly define validation groups by means of validationGroups attribute.

/**
 * @Route("/users", methods={"PATCH"})
 *
 * @RequestBody("user", validationGroups={"edit"})
 *
 * @param int $userId
 * @param User $user
 * @return Response
 */
public function editUser(int $userId, User $user): Response
{
    return new Response();
}

You can read more about a validation process.

Debug

The bundle comes with a handy console command which shows all controllers that use the @RequestBody annotation

$ php bin/console debug:request-body
