Configuration Overview

This following configuration example shows all the configuration defaults that the ORM resolves to:

doctrine:
    orm:
        auto_mapping: true
        # the standard distribution overrides this to be true in debug, false otherwise
        auto_generate_proxy_classes: false
        proxy_namespace: Proxies
        proxy_dir: "%kernel.cache_dir%/doctrine/orm/Proxies"
        default_entity_manager: default
        metadata_cache_driver: array
        query_cache_driver: array
        result_cache_driver: array

There are lots of other configuration options that you can use to overwrite certain classes, but those are for very advanced use-cases only.

Caching Drivers

For the caching drivers you can specify the values "array", "apc", "memcache", "memcached", "xcache" or "service".

The following example shows an overview of the caching configurations:

doctrine:
    orm:
        auto_mapping: true
        metadata_cache_driver: apc
        query_cache_driver:
            type: service
            id: my_doctrine_common_cache_service
        result_cache_driver:
            type: memcache
            host: localhost
            port: 11211
            instance_class: Memcache

Mapping Configuration

Explicit definition of all the mapped entities is the only necessary configuration for the ORM and there are several configuration options that you can control. The following configuration options exist for a mapping:

  • type One of annotation, xml, yml, php or staticphp. This specifies which type of metadata type your mapping uses.
  • dir Path to the mapping or entity files (depending on the driver). If this path is relative it is assumed to be relative to the bundle root. This only works if the name of your mapping is a bundle name. If you want to use this option to specify absolute paths you should prefix the path with the kernel parameters that exist in the DIC (for example %kernel.root_dir%).
  • prefix A common namespace prefix that all entities of this mapping share. This prefix should never conflict with prefixes of other defined mappings otherwise some of your entities cannot be found by Doctrine. This option defaults to the bundle namespace + Entity, for example for an application bundle called AcmeHelloBundle prefix would be Acme\HelloBundle\Entity.
  • alias Doctrine offers a way to alias entity namespaces to simpler, shorter names to be used in DQL queries or for Repository access. When using a bundle the alias defaults to the bundle name.
  • is_bundle This option is a derived value from dir and by default is set to true if dir is relative proved by a file_exists() check that returns false. It is false if the existence check returns true. In this case an absolute path was specified and the metadata files are most likely in a directory outside of a bundle.

Doctrine DBAL Configuration

DoctrineBundle supports all parameters that default Doctrine drivers accept, converted to the XML or YAML naming standards that Symfony enforces. See the Doctrine DBAL documentation for more information. The following block shows all possible configuration keys:

If you want to configure multiple connections in YAML, put them under the connections key and give them a unique name:

doctrine:
    dbal:
        default_connection:       default
        connections:
            default:
                dbname:           Symfony2
                user:             root
                password:         null
                host:             localhost
            customer:
                dbname:           customer
                user:             root
                password:         null
                host:             localhost

The database_connection service always refers to the default connection, which is the first one defined or the one configured via the default_connection parameter.

Each connection is also accessible via the doctrine.dbal.[name]_connection service where [name] is the name of the connection.

Shortened Configuration Syntax

When you are only using one entity manager, all config options available can be placed directly under doctrine.orm config level.

This shortened version is commonly used in other documentation sections. Keep in mind that you can't use both syntaxes at the same time.
