This toolkit provides an user interface to create output formats for data objects based on different output channels. So it is possible to define, which attributes of a data objects should be printed in a certain output channel. An output data configuration consists of

  • values = data object attributes
  • operators = can combine, modify, calculate, ... values

Table of Contents


Channel Config

After installing the bundle, a config file is located at /var/config/outputdataconfig/config.php. In this config file available output channels can be configured as follows:

    return [
        "channels" => [

Functional Config

In config.yml:


        # order classes by name (defaults by id)
        order_by_name: true                             
        # classes that should be listed by default in output config tab
            - Product                                   # class name
            - Pimcore\Model\DataObject\ProductCategory  # full namespace
            - 12                                        # class id

        # defines which classification keys are displayed in the config dialog tree
        # the possible values are:
        #   'all',       -> always show all keys
        #   'object',    -> only show keys which are in any assigned group of the current object
        #   'relevant',  -> use 'object' mode if any group is assigned, else show all keys (i.e. on a folder)
        #   'none'       -> do not show classification store keys
        display_mode: relevant

Defining output data configuration for different output channels

Output data configurations can be configured in an additional tab in the data object editor. There for each data object class and output channel an output output data configuration can be defined.


The output data configurations can be inherited along the data objects tree. The column Object ID shows from with data object the output data configuration is inherited from. By clicking overwrite, the editor opens and a new output data configuration can be configured.


Working with output channels in code

The bundle provides a service class, with converts a Pimcore data object to an output data structure based on its ouput data configuration.


    // returns the output data structure for the given product and the output channel productdetail_specification
    $specificationOutputChannel =  OutputDataConfigToolkitBundle\Service::getOutputDataConfig($product, "productdetail_specification");

    //printing output channel in view script with view-helper
    foreach($specificationOutputChannel as $property) {
        $this->productListSpecification($property, $this->product);

A sample template helper see doc/ProductListSpecification.php, the needed service configuration:

# Product Detail Specification Template Helper
    class: AppBundle\Templating\Helper\ProductDetailSpecification
    arguments: ['@translator', '@Pimcore\Localization\IntlFormatter']
        - { name: templating.helper, alias: productDetailSpecification }

used by projects for example


Event Description
outputDataConfigToolkit.initialize Before any output-config tab's initialization, so you can i.e. manipulate the configuration object, or only show the tab for a specific class type. For a full example see OutputDataConfigToolkitListener.
outputDataConfigToolkit.saveEvent Before a specific output config is saved. Can be implemented to sort config attributes or to modify attributes in any other way.

Adding new operators

Create a Pimcore bundle and add following files:

php implementation of operator

  • must be in namespace OutputDataConfigToolkitBundle\ConfigElement\Operator
  • must implement AbstractOperator
namespace OutputDataConfigToolkitBundle\ConfigElement\Operator;

class RemoveZero extends AbstractOperator {

    public function __construct($config, $context = null) {
        parent::__construct($config, $context);

    public function getLabeledValue($object) {
        $childs = $this->getChilds();
        if($childs[0]) {

            $value = $childs[0]->getLabeledValue($object);
            $value->value = $value->value == 0 ? null : $value->value;

            return $value;
        return null;


java script implementation of operator

  • must be in namespace pimcore.bundle.outputDataConfigToolkit.outputDataConfigElements.operator
  • must extend pimcore.bundle.outputDataConfigToolkit.outputDataConfigElements.Abstract

pimcore.bundle.outputDataConfigToolkit.outputDataConfigElements.operator.RemoveZero = Class.create(pimcore.bundle.outputDataConfigToolkit.outputDataConfigElements.Abstract, {
    type: "operator",
    class: "RemoveZero",
    iconCls: "pimcore_icon_operator_remove_zero",
    defaultText: "operator_remove_zero",

    getConfigTreeNode: function(configAttributes) {
        if(configAttributes) {
            var node = {
                draggable: true,
                iconCls: this.iconCls,
                text: t(this.defaultText),
                configAttributes: configAttributes,
                isTarget: true,
                maxChildCount: 1,
                expanded: true,
                leaf: false,
                expandable: false
        } else {

            //For building up operator list
            var configAttributes = { type: this.type, class: this.class};

            var node = {
                draggable: true,
                iconCls: this.iconCls,
                text: t(this.defaultText),
                configAttributes: configAttributes,
                isTarget: true,
                maxChildCount: 1,
                leaf: true
        return node;

    getCopyNode: function(source) {
        var copy = new Ext.tree.TreeNode({
            iconCls: this.iconCls,
            text: t(this.defaultText),
            isTarget: true,
            leaf: false,
            maxChildCount: 1,
            expanded: true,
            configAttributes: {
                label: null,
                type: this.type,
                class: this.class
        return copy;

    getConfigDialog: function(node) {

    commitData: function() {

Defining output data configuration programmatically

For defining definitions programmatically utilize the \OutputDataConfigToolkitBundle\ConfigAttribute\... classes.

I.e. adding a classification store key to a channel definition:

$config = new \OutputDataConfigToolkitBundle\ConfigAttribute\Value\DefaultValue();
$config->applyDefaults(); // datatype, type, class

// create definition for channel and add value 
$newConfig = new \OutputDataConfigToolkitBundle\OutputDefinition();
$newConfig->setConfiguration($serializer->serialize($config, 'json'));

Support for textual class ids

Execute the following statement:

ALTER TABLE bundle_outputdataconfigtoolkit_outputdefinition MODIFY `classId` varchar(50);

Migration from Pimcore 4

  • Change table name from plugin_outputdataconfigtoolkit_outputdefinition to bundle_outputdataconfigtoolkit_outputdefinition.
RENAME TABLE plugin_outputdataconfigtoolkit_outputdefinition TO bundle_outputdataconfigtoolkit_outputdefinition; 
  • Change namespace from Elements\OutputDataConfigToolkit to OutputDataConfigToolkitBundle.
  • Removed key value support.
  • Changed permission key to bundle_outputDataConfigToolkit, execute following SQL statement
UPDATE users_permission_definitions SET `key` = REPLACE(`key`, 'plugin_outputDataConfigToolkit', 'bundle_outputDataConfigToolkit');
UPDATE users SET permissions = REPLACE(`permissions`, 'plugin_outputDataConfigToolkit', 'bundle_outputDataConfigToolkit');
  • namespaces for custom operators and values changed from pimcore.plugin.outputDataConfigToolkit.* to pimcore.bundle.outputDataConfigToolkit.*
