  • Hello.

    I would like to create a package using mycomponent. So I installed MODX and mycomponent. Basically I know how to create packages with mycomponent.

    So far the package I'm working on does only contain a modified addusers.resolver.php (no chunks, resources etc.). The code that I added to this file works fine if run as snippet. But if the code is run in the addusers.resolver.php while package installation, the installation gets stuck (no package installation success message). But the code is executed successfully because the user groups are created and the super user is added to the newly created user groups and got super user role.

    Am I doing something wrong? Is the addusers.resolver.php file not the place to create user groups? Or is it very uncommon to do that in a package installation routine?

    Here is the installation console output ('sitelogin' is the package name):
    Console running...
    Attempting to install package with signature: sitelogin-1.0
    Package found...now preparing to install.
    Grabbing package workspace...
    PHP notice: Undefined offset: 2
    Workspace environment initiated, now installing package...


    The php notice does appear on installation of every package that I created with mycomponent (may refer to a php version?).

    This is the addusers.resolver.php:

    This question has been answered by BobRay. See the first response.

    • you've forgotten a single quote

      $new_user_groups = array(
          'Member Group 1',
          'Member Group 2');
        -------------------------------

        you can buy me a beer, if you like MIGX

        Thanks!
      • Oh, you're right. After pasting the code in my initial posting I changed the user group names and accidentally removed the quote. In my code file all quotes are set.

          I've sometimes had trouble using the processors in a resolver -- possibly due to permission issues. You might try just creating the objects directly (untested and incomplete):

             /* In case group already exists */
             $user_group = $modx->getObject('modUserGroup', array('name' => $name));
             if (! user_group) {
                 $user_group = $modx->newObject('modUserGroup');
             }
             $user_group->set('name', $name);
             $user_group->set('parent', $parent);
             $user_group->save();
          }



          To add a user to the group (it's more reliable to re-get the group):

          $role = 2;
          $rank = ??;
          $userId = ??;
          
          $group = $modx->getObject('modUserGroup', array('name' => $name));
          if ($group) {
             $groupId = $group->get('id');
             /* In case the UGM already exists */
             $ugm = $modx->getObject('modUserGroupMember', array('user_group' => $groupId, 'member' => $userId));
             if (!$ugm) {
                 $ugm = $modx->newObject('modUserGroupMember');
             }
             $ugm->set('user_group', $groupId);
             $ugm->set('member', $userId);
             $ugm->set('role', $role);
             $ugm->set('rank', $rank);
             $ugm->save();
          } else {
              /* report error */
          }



          For uninstall:

          $user_group = $modx->getObject('modUserGroup', array('name' => $new_user_group));
          if ($user_group) {
             $user_group->remove();
          } else {
             /* report error */
          }


          You can also use fromArray() to set the object fields before saving rather than the individual set() calls.

          • Thank you, BobRay.

            After working on my extra for a while ignoring the resolver issue, I came back to it. I did like you suggested (avoid processors) and now the resolver works fine.

            By the way, I like your book. It is still useful for learning the basics.

            • I'm glad you got it sorted. smiley

              Thanks for the kind words, and for buying my book.
