Provides cascade functionality to Gedmo Doctrine Extensions soft-delete. Adjusted from E-vence/SoftDeleteableListenerExtensionBundle.

v3.0.2 2021-07-23 14:08 UTC


Extensions to Gedmo's softDeleteable listener which has had this issue reported since 2012 : https://github.com/Atlantic18/DoctrineExtensions/issues/505.

Provides the onSoftDelete functionality to an association of a doctrine entity. This functionality behaves like the SQL onDelete function (when the owner side is deleted). It will prevent Doctrine errors when a reference is soft-deleted.

Cascade delete the entity

To (soft-)delete an entity when its parent record is soft-deleted :


Set reference to null (instead of deleting the entity)

 @Xcentric\onSoftDelete(type="SET NULL")

Entity example


namespace AppBundle\Entity;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;
use Gedmo\Mapping\Annotation as Gedmo;
use Xcentric\SoftDeleteableExtensionBundle\Mapping\Annotation as Xcentric;

 * @ORM\Entity(repositoryClass="AppBundle\Entity\AdvertisementRepository")
 * @Gedmo\SoftDeleteable(fieldName="deletedAt")
class Advertisement


     * @ORM\ManyToOne(targetEntity="AppBundle\Entity\Shop")
     * @ORM\JoinColumn(name="shop_id", referencedColumnName="id")
     * @Xcentric\onSoftDelete(type="CASCADE")
    private $shop;


Optional - Caching class map

Add property xcentric_class_map_path

# app/config/parameters.yml

    xcentric_class_map_path: '%kernel.root_dir%/config/classMap.yaml'

Execute command xcentric:softdelete:map:generate


Install with composer:

composer require xcentric/soft-deleteable-extension-bundle

Add the bundle to app/AppKernel.php:

# app/AppKernel.php

$bundles = array(
    new Xcentric\SoftDeleteableExtensionBundle\XcentricSoftDeleteableExtensionBundle(),
