Basic Usage

If, for some reason, you wanted to ensure that the firstName property of an Author class exactly equal to null, you could do the following:

  • YAML
  • Annotations
  • XML
  • PHP

# src/Acme/BlogBundle/Resources/config/validation.yml
Acme\BlogBundle\Entity\Author:
    properties:
        firstName:
            - 'Null': ~

Caution

When using YAML, be sure to surround Null with quotes ('Null') or else YAML will convert this into a null value.
