UserPassword

New in version 2.1

This constraint is new in version 2.1.

Note

Since Symfony 2.2, the UserPassword* classes in the Symfony\\Component\\Security\\Core\\Validator\\Constraint namespace are deprecated and will be removed in Symfony 2.3. Please use the UserPassword* classes in the Symfony\\Component\\Security\\Core\\Validator\\Constraints namespace instead.

This validates that an input value is equal to the current authenticated user's password. This is useful in a form where a user can change their password, but needs to enter their old password for security.

Note

This should not be used to validate a login form, since this is done automatically by the security system.

Applies to property or method

Class UserPassword

Basic Usage

Suppose you have a `PasswordChange` class, that's used in a form where the user can change their password by entering their old password and a new password. This constraint will validate that the old password matches the user's current password:
