SymfonyInsight SDK

Fund package maintenance!

v1.10.0 2023-09-15 12:00 UTC



This is the official SDK for the SymfonyInsight API.


To install the SDK, run the command below and you will get the latest version:

composer require sensiolabs/insight

Command Line Tool

The easiest way to use the SymfonyInsight API is via the built-in command line tool.

A phar version of the command line tool exists to avoid installation of this project. Download it, then use it like the command line tool:

$ curl -o insight.phar -s
# or
$ wget

# Then
$ php insight.phar

List all the projects in your account:

$ php insight.phar projects

The first time, you will be prompted for your SymfonyInsight API key and user UUID (which can be found under the "Account" section on the website).

These information are then stored locally, but can still be overridden via the --api-token and --user-uuid options.

To run an analysis:

$ php insight.phar analyze UUID

where UUID is the UUID of the project you want to analyze (the UUIDs are listed by the projects command).

To export an analysis report:

$ php insight.phar analysis UUID --format="xml" # or --format="json" or --format="pmd"


use SensioLabs\Insight\Sdk\Api;

$api = new Api(array(
    'api_token' => 'your api token',
    'user_uuid' => 'your user uuid',


List all projects:

$api->getProjects(2); // For the second page

Get a project:

$project = $api->getProject('project uuid');

Update a project


Note: If something went wrong, see Error management section

Post a project

use SensioLabs\Insight\Sdk\Model\Project;

$project = new Project();


Note: If something went wrong, see Error management section

Run an analysis

// on the default branch
$api->analyze('project uuid', 'master');

// for a specific branch or reference
$api->analyze('project uuid', '1.0');

Get all analyses

$api->getAnalyses('project uuid');

// for a specific branch
$api->getAnalyses('project uuid', 'branch name');

Get an analysis

$api->getAnalysis('project uuid', 'analysis id');

Get a status analysis

$api->getAnalysisStatus('project uuid', 'analysis id');

Error management

If something went wrong, an SensioLabs\Insight\Sdk\Exception\ExceptionInterface will be throw:

  • ApiClientException If you did something wrong. This exception contains the previous exception throw by guzzle. You can easily check if it is a:
    • 403: In this case, check your credentials
    • 404: In this case, check your request
    • 400: In this case, check the data sent. In this case, the Exception will contains a SensioLabs\Insight\Sdk\Model\Error object. Which will contains all form errors.
  • ApiServerException If something went wrong with the API.

Jenkins/Hudson Integration

Thanks to Jenkins PMD Plugin and SymfonyInsight SDK PMD output you can easily embed SymfonyInsight reports into your build workflow, following these steps:

It is assumed you already have your project up and building in Jenkins and SymfonyInsight SDK installed.

  1. Retrieve your SymfonyInsight API Token, User UUID and Project UUID on your account page

  2. Install the Jenkins PMD plugin: How to install a jenkins plugin

  3. Optionally you can also install the EnvInject Plugin

  4. Edit your project configuration

  5. If you have EnvInject Plugin installed, enabled Set environment variables then add and adapt the following lines to variables name:

  6. Add a Execute shell build step

  7. In the new shell step add and adapt the following command (if you don't have EnvInject plugin, replace variables by plain values):

     /path/to/insight-sdk/bin/insight analysis \
     --user-uuid $INSIGHT_USER_UUID \
     --api-token $INSIGHT_API_TOKEN \
     $INSIGHT_PROJECT_UUID --format=pmd > insight-pmd.xml
  8. Enable Publish PMD analysis results using insight-pmd.xml as PMD result filename

  9. Optionally, you can add the insight-pmd.xml file to artifacts to archive

  10. Save and build!
