Custom ID Generators

Custom ID generators are classes that allow implementing custom logic to generate identifiers for your entities. They extend Doctrine\ORM\Id\AbstractIdGenerator and implement the custom logic in the generate(EntityManager $em, $entity) method. Before Doctrine bundle 2.3, custom ID generators were always created without any constructor arguments.

Starting with Doctrine bundle 2.3, the CustomIdGenerator annotation can be used to reference any services tagged with the doctrine.id_generator tag. If you enable autoconfiguration (which is the default most of the time), Symfony will add this tag for you automatically if you implement your own id-generators.

When using Symfony's Doctrine bridge and Uid component 5.3 or higher, two services are provided: doctrine.ulid_generator to generate ULIDs, and doctrine.uuid_generator to generate UUIDs.

1<?php // User.php use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM; /** * @ORM\Entity */ class User { /** * @Id * @Column(type="uuid") * @ORM\GeneratedValue(strategy="CUSTOM") * @ORM\CustomIdGenerator('doctrine.uuid_generator') */ private $id; // .... }
