A Symfony2 Bundle To Log Selective Events. It is easy to configure and easy to customize for your need.

Note: If you are using Symfony version older then 2.4 you need to use EasyAuditBundle 1.2.x


  1. Add EasyAuditBundle in your composer.json
  2. Enable the Bundle
  3. Create audit_log entity class
  4. Configure config.yml
  5. Update Database Schema

1. Add EasyAuditBundle in your composer.json

Add EasyAuditBundle in your composer.json:

    "require": {
        "xiidea/easy-audit": "1.3.*@dev"

Now tell composer to download the bundle by running the command:

$ php composer.phar update xiidea/easy-audit

Composer will install the bundle to your project's vendor/xiidea directory.

2. Enable the Bundle

// app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
        // ...
        new Xiidea\EasyAuditBundle\XiideaEasyAuditBundle(),

3. Create audit_log entity class

The XiideaEasyAuditBundle supports Doctrine ORM by default. However, you must provide a concrete AuditLog class. Follow the instructions to set up the class:

4. Configure config.yml

You can find sample config data in Resources/config/config-sample.yml file

# app/config/config.yml
    #resolver: xiidea.easy_audit.default_event_resolver                           #Optional
    #entity_class : MyProject\Bundle\MyBundle\Entity\AuditLog                     #Required
    #entity_event_resolver : xiidea.easy_audit.default_entity_event_resolver      #Optional
    #default_logger : true                                                        #Optional

    #user property to use as actor of an event
    #valid value will be any valid property of your user class
    user_property : ~ # or username                            #Optional

    #List of doctrine entity:event you wish to track or set to false to disable logs for doctrine events
    # valid events are = [created, updated, deleted]
    #doctrine_entities :                                              #Optional
    #     MyProject\Bundle\MyBundle\Entity\MyEntity : [created, updated, deleted]
    #     MyProject\Bundle\MyBundle\Entity\MyEntity2 : ~

    #List all events you want to track  (Optional from v1.2.1 you can now use subscriber to define it)
    events :                                                   #Optional
        - security.interactive_login

    #List all custom resolver for event
    #custom_resolvers :
    #       security.interactive_login : user.event_resolver
    #       security.authentication.failure : user.event_resolver

    #    xiidea.easy_audit.logger.service: ["info", "debug"]
    #    file.logger: ["!info", "!debug"]

    #Custom Event Resolver Service
    #     class: Xiidea\EasyAuditBundle\Resolver\UserEventResolver
    #     calls:
    #        - [ setContainer,[ @service_container ] ]

5. Update Database Schema

As all setup done, now you need to update your database schema. To do so,run the following command from your project directory

$ php app/console doctrine:schema:update --force

Core Concepts


Logger is the core service which are responsible for persist the event info. You can define as many logger as you like. EasyAudit Bundled with a logger service xiidea.easy_audit.logger.service which is the default logger service. You can easily disable the service by setting default_logger: false in configuration.


Resolver is like translator for an event. It used to translate an event to AuditLog entity. EasyAudit bundled with two(2) resolver services xiidea.easy_audit.default_event_resolver, xiidea.easy_audit.default_entity_event_resolver. And a custom EventResolver class UserEventResolver to illustrate how the transformation works. You can define as many resolver service as you want and use them to handle different event. Here is the place you can set the severity level for a event. Default level is Psr\Log\LogLevel::INFO. Custom severity levels are not available. EasyAudit supports the logging levels described by PSR-3. These values are present for basic filtering purposes. You can use this value as channel to register different logger to handle different event. If you add any other field to your AuditLog object, this is the place to add those extra information (tags, metadata, etc..)


It is now possible to register logger for specific channel. channel is refers to log level. you can configure EasyAudit logger services to handle only specific level of event.

Warning - BC Breaking Changes

  • Since v1.2.2 pre_persist_listener option has been removed. You can use this cookbook to achieve the same functionality
  • Since v1.2.2 EventResolverInterface been split into EmbeddedEventResolverInterface and EventResolverInterface
  • Since v1.3.x The new Event object has been adapted. And the signature of EmbeddedEventResolverInterface and EventResolverInterface also changed. Now it expects extra $eventName parameter


Look the cookbook for another interesting things.
