    i use bundle inheritance for the OroWorkflowBundle.
    I would like override a controller, however i have a problem with the annotation routing definitions.

    “Unable to generate a URL for the named route “oro_workflow_definition_index” as such route does not exist.”

    The inheritance configuration overrides the complete definition of the OroWorkflowBundle.
    How i can solve this problem?

    Hi alps86,

    Did you check if this route still exists?
    In you console you can debug router names with the command

    The output for this route on my installation is:

    If it’s a js error you could try and see if the route is in the routes.js by running the following command

    and find the oro_workflow_definition_index route. If you are working on unix based system like Mac or Linux distro, you could easily find the route (if there is one) by running

    The output of the command on my installation is

    Hope this helps!

    Kind Regards,

    Without bundle inheritance the both commands can find the route.
    With bundle inheritance the commands can not find the route.


    Hi alps86,

    I can reproduce the error you’re getting. Apparently you have to define the route again if you’re going to override the Controller.
    I added this part to my annotations above the indexAction, but I don’t think this is the correct way to override a controller action. Full Controller class looks like this at this point:

    Just read the standard symfony 2 bundle inheritance article again, but they never mention anything about redefining the route itself. Maybe someone from the Oro Core team can shine a light on this one. This is not what I have foreseen as a potential problem.

    I also noticed If copy the code above, you’ll get in trouble with the Api/Rest/WorkflowDefinitionController. With the above code, all other methods in the controller seem to work, but you’ll get an error. This is the same as with overriding the “normal” controller for Workflow Definitions only for the Api/RestWorkflowDefinitionController. By which you are forced to override this controller as well.

    Sorry I couldn’t be more of help. Hopefully the Oro Core Team has an idea for overriding this controller or the controllers in general.

    Kind Regards,

    Jaimy Casteleijn



    This issue is related to default Symfony behavior. When you extend bundle it’s child routing will be ignored in some cases. We are planning to make some improvements in this direction but for now you can use a workaround. One simple workaround is to extend all controllers in your bundle even if extended controller will be empty and mention them in your Resources/oro/routing.yml file using type “annotation”.

    You can also check this resources for additioanl info about other workarounds: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9373433/symfony2-bundle-inheritance-losing-parent-bundles-routes



    Nikita Petrov

    Ignat, thank you for links, but can you please help me with routes inheritance for child of OroCRMSalesBundle? I need to modify some code for Lead entity but when I inherit Bundle as you linked above all routes of all OroCRMSalesBundle’s controllers append to “/”. How can I append them back to “/lead” prefix?

    I tried this solution.


    src/Test/Bundle/SalesBundle/Controller/LeadController.php (same for OpportunityController and SalesFunnelController):


    After that I have:

    If I comment bundle inheritance I have what I had before and what I want:

    Can you please help me how I should inherit routes to save prefix “/lead” for LeadController, “/opportunity” for OpportunityController and others?


    Nikita Petrov

    Anybody help me please. :)


    Hi Nikita,

    Try to add prefix: /lead in your src/Test/Bundle/SalesBundle/Resources/config/oro/routing.yml.

    So it will look something like this:

    Hope this helps!

    Kind Regards,

    Jaimy Casteleijn


    Nikita Petrov

    Jaimy, thank you for your suggest. I tried this solution, but it proved to be ineffective – all routes still mapped to “/”.

    Also I tried map only LeadController in routing.yml:

    Still no result. :(


    Hello, Nikita.

    First solution: if you want to extend all controllers from SalesBundle, you’d better extend whole resource file, i.e.:


    Second solution: if you want to extend each controller separately, you should put route annotation to your controller:




    Nikita Petrov

    Yevhen, thank you! First way for unknown for me reasons does not work for me (Symfony was unable to import directory by relation path). Second way pretty works for me.


    You are welcome.

    As for first solution – probably, you didn’t set correct path to SalesBundle – if depends on your specific installation and starts from /app/config directory (so you have to put “../../” at the beginning). In future we are going to improve this behaviour and allow to set relative bundle paths.


    Nikita Petrov

    Yeah, thank you for relation path solution. First way works now for OroCRMSalesBundle. But for OroCRMAccountBundle I need to define prefix in routing.yml to get routes inheritance work.


    It’s ok, you can customize routes whatever you want. There is just one thing you should remember about bundle and routes inheritance – if you inherit only one controller from parent bundle (second solution) then all other controllers will not be imported automatically, you have to put them in config manually.


    Please help me i override Bundle and this error come when i try to insert record

    Here, Is my code of Controller

    class DefaultController extends Controller {

    public function createAction() {
    return $this->update(new Business());

    * @param Clra\BusinessBundle\Entity\BusinessUnit $entity
    * @return array
    protected function update(Business $entity) {
    $em = $this->getDoctrine()->getManager();
    $form = $this->createForm(new BusinessType(), $entity);

    if ($this->get(‘oro_organization.form.handler.business_unit’)->process($entity)) {
    ‘success’, $this->get(‘translator’)->trans(‘oro.business_unit.controller.message.saved’)

    return $this->get(‘oro_ui.router’)->redirect($entity);
    return $this->render(‘ClraBusinessBundle:BusinessUnit:update.html.twig’, array(‘form’ => $form->createView(), ‘entity’ => $entity));

    public function viewProfileAction() {
    return $this->view($this->getUser(), true);

    public function indexAction(Request $request) {
    return array(
    ‘entity_class’ => $this->container->getParameter(‘oro_organization.business_unit.entity.class’)

    public function usersAction(BusinessUnit $entity) {
    return array(
    ‘entity’ => $entity,


    and here is my routing file

    # path: /hello/{name}
    # defaults: { _controller: ClraBusinessBundle:Default:index }

    path: /business-data/create
    defaults: { _controller: ClraBusinessBundle:Default:create }

    path: /
    defaults: { _controller: ClraBusinessBundle:Default:index }

    path: /profile/view
    defaults: { _controller: ClraBusinessBundle:Default:view }

    path: /widget/users/{id}
    defaults: { _controller: ClraBusinessBundle:Default:users }

    path: /format
    defaults: { _controller: ClraBusinessBundle:Default:index }
