  2. Add the plugin to the config/bundles.php file:

Webgriffe\SyliusBackInStockNotificationPlugin\WebgriffeSyliusBackInStockNotificationPlugin::class => ['all' => true],
  1. Import the plugin routes by creating a file in config/routes/webgriffe_sylius_back_in_stock_notification_plugin.yaml with the follwing content:
  resource: "@WebgriffeSyliusBackInStockNotificationPlugin/config/routing.yaml"
  1. Import required packages config in your config/packages/webgriffe_sylius_back_in_stock_notification_plugin.yaml file:
   - { resource: "@WebgriffeSyliusBackInStockNotificationPlugin/config/packages.yaml" }
  1. Update the database schema and install assets:

This module sends mail using a Symfony Command. Unfortunately, the command line context does not know about your VirtualHost or domain name. To fix this, the Command loads the hostname from the Subscription's channel, if nothing set it defaults to localhost. In console commands, URLs use http by default. You can change this globally with these configuration parameters:

  1. Edit the config/services.yml file by adding the following content:
    router.request_context.scheme: https
  1. As said early this module provides a command that check the stock of the product. You have to set the command bin/console webgriffe:back-in-stock-notification:alert in the crontab, once a day is enough:
0 12 * * * <absolute-php-path> <absolute-path-to-sylius-dir>/bin/console webgriffe:back-in-stock-notification:alert
