This bundle provides additional param converters for Symfony.

Scrutinizer Code Quality Build Status

Since argument resolvers and service arguments were introduced in Symfony 3.3, the param converter provided by this bundle is redundant. We can achieve pretty much the same by injecting services directly to controller actions.


This bundle requires:

  • PHP ^7.0
  • sensio/framework-extra-bundle ~3.0

The easiest way to install it is to use Composer:

$ composer require zalas/param-converter-bundle:^1.0

Service Param Converter

The service param converter calls a configured service to convert a request attribute to an object.


  • service - a service id
  • method - a method name to be called on the service
  • arguments - list of request attributes to be passed as method call arguments



namespace AppBundle\Controller;

use AppBundle\Site\Visitor;
use Sensio\Bundle\FrameworkExtraBundle\Configuration\ParamConverter;
use Sensio\Bundle\FrameworkExtraBundle\Configuration\Route;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response;

class DemoController
     * @Route("/hello/{name}")
     * @ParamConverter(
     *     "visitor",
     *     converter="service",
     *     options={
     *         "service": "visitor_repository",
     *         "method": "findByName",
     *         "arguments": {"name"}
     *     }
     * )
    public function indexAction(Visitor $visitor)
        return new Response('Hello '.$visitor->getName());
