Write Protection


6.0.0 or newer

Table of contents

Shopware 6 has a few read optimized fields that should usually not be written by users of the DAL or even the REST-API. But of course there always is a single place where manipulation must be possible. Learn here how.

Flagging the field

You need to flag the field in your EntityDefinition with WriteProtected and add a unique identifier to reference the protection.

(new StringField('protected', 'protected'))->addFlags(new WriteProtected('permission_key_example'));


In your own handler with your custom logic you can now easily add the required permission key to the context and execute your write operation.


If the defined permissionKey is not set in the context's write protection, the DataAbstractionLayer will throw an WriteException containing an InsufficientWritePermissionException.
