/**
 * @defgroup entity_crud Entity CRUD, editing, and view hooks
 * @{
 * Hooks used in various entity operations.
 *
 * Entity create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations are performed by
 * entity storage classes; see the
 * @link entity_api Entity API topic @endlink for more information. Most
 * entities use or extend the default classes:
25
 * \Drupal\Core\Entity\Sql\SqlContentEntityStorage for content entities, and
26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136 137
 * \Drupal\Core\Config\Entity\ConfigEntityStorage for configuration entities.
 * For these entities, there is a set of hooks that is invoked for each
 * CRUD operation, which module developers can implement to affect these
 * operations; these hooks are actually invoked from methods on
 * \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityStorageBase.
 *
 * For content entities, viewing and rendering are handled by a view builder
 * class; see the @link entity_api Entity API topic @endlink for more
 * information. Most view builders extend or use the default class
 * \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityViewBuilder.
 *
 * Entity editing (including adding new entities) is handled by entity form
 * classes; see the @link entity_api Entity API topic @endlink for more
 * information. Most entity editing forms extend base classes
 * \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityForm or \Drupal\Core\Entity\ContentEntityForm.
 * Note that many other operations, such as confirming deletion of entities,
 * also use entity form classes.
 *
 * This topic lists all of the entity CRUD and view operations, and the hooks
 * and other operations that are invoked (in order) for each operation. Some
 * notes:
 * - Whenever an entity hook is invoked, there is both a type-specific entity
 *   hook, and a generic entity hook. For instance, during a create operation on
 *   a node, first hook_node_create() and then hook_entity_create() would be
 *   invoked.
 * - The entity-type-specific hooks are represented in the list below as
 *   hook_ENTITY_TYPE_... (hook_ENTITY_TYPE_create() in this example). To
 *   implement one of these hooks for an entity whose machine name is "foo",
 *   define a function called mymodule_foo_create(), for instance. Also note
 *   that the entity or array of entities that are passed into a specific-type
 *   hook are of the specific entity class, not the generic Entity class, so in
 *   your implementation, you can make the $entity argument something like $node
 *   and give it a specific type hint (which should normally be to the specific
 *   interface, such as \Drupal\Node\NodeInterface for nodes).
 * - $storage in the code examples is assumed to be an entity storage
 *   class. See the @link entity_api Entity API topic @endlink for
 *   information on how to instantiate the correct storage class for an
 *   entity type.
 * - $view_builder in the code examples is assumed to be an entity view builder
 *   class. See the @link entity_api Entity API topic @endlink for
 *   information on how to instantiate the correct view builder class for
 *   an entity type.
 * - During many operations, static methods are called on the entity class,
 *   which implements \Drupal\Entity\EntityInterface.
 *
 * @section create Create operations
 * To create an entity:
 * @code
 * $entity = $storage->create();
 *
 * // Add code here to set properties on the entity.
 *
 * // Until you call save(), the entity is just in memory.
 * $entity->save();
 * @endcode
 * There is also a shortcut method on entity classes, which creates an entity
 * with an array of provided property values: \Drupal\Core\Entity::create().
 *
 * Hooks invoked during the create operation:
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_create()
 * - hook_entity_create()
 *
 * See @ref save below for the save portion of the operation.
 *
 * @section load Read/Load operations
 * To load (read) a single entity:
 * @code
 * $entity = $storage->load($id);
 * @endcode
 * To load multiple entities:
 * @code
 * $entities = $storage->loadMultiple($ids);
 * @endcode
 * Since load() calls loadMultiple(), these are really the same operation.
 * Here is the order of hooks and other operations that take place during
 * entity loading:
 * - Entity is loaded from storage.
 * - postLoad() is called on the entity class, passing in all of the loaded
 *   entities.
 * - hook_entity_load()
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_load()
 *
 * When an entity is loaded, normally the default entity revision is loaded.
 * It is also possible to load a different revision, for entities that support
 * revisions, with this code:
 * @code
 * $entity = $storage->loadRevision($revision_id);
 * @endcode
 * This involves the same hooks and operations as regular entity loading.
 *
 * @section save Save operations
 * To update an existing entity, you will need to load it, change properties,
 * and then save; as described above, when creating a new entity, you will also
 * need to save it. Here is the order of hooks and other events that happen
 * during an entity save:
 * - preSave() is called on the entity object, and field objects.
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_presave()
 * - hook_entity_presave()
 * - Entity is saved to storage.
 * - For updates on content entities, if there is a translation added that
 *   was not previously present:
 *   - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_translation_insert()
 *   - hook_entity_translation_insert()
 * - For updates on content entities, if there was a translation removed:
 *   - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_translation_delete()
 *   - hook_entity_translation_delete()
 * - postSave() is called on the entity object.
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_insert() (new) or hook_ENTITY_TYPE_update() (update)
 * - hook_entity_insert() (new) or hook_entity_update() (update)
 *
 * Some specific entity types invoke hooks during preSave() or postSave()
 * operations. Examples:
138
 * - Field configuration preSave(): hook_field_storage_config_update_forbid()
139 140
 * - Node postSave(): hook_node_access_records() and
 *   hook_node_access_records_alter()
141 142
 * - Config entities that are acting as entity bundles in postSave():
 *   hook_entity_bundle_create()
143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153 154 155 156 157 158 159 160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 185
 * - Comment: hook_comment_publish() and hook_comment_unpublish() as
 *   appropriate.
 *
 * @section edit Editing operations
 * When an entity's add/edit form is used to add or edit an entity, there
 * are several hooks that are invoked:
 * - hook_entity_prepare_form()
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_prepare_form()
 * - hook_entity_form_display_alter() (for content entities only)
 *
 * @section delete Delete operations
 * To delete one or more entities, load them and then delete them:
 * @code
 * $entities = $storage->loadMultiple($ids);
 * $storage->delete($entities);
 * @endcode
 *
 * During the delete operation, the following hooks and other events happen:
 * - preDelete() is called on the entity class.
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_predelete()
 * - hook_entity_predelete()
 * - Entity and field information is removed from storage.
 * - postDelete() is called on the entity class.
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_delete()
 * - hook_entity_delete()
 *
 * Some specific entity types invoke hooks during the delete process. Examples:
 * - Entity bundle postDelete(): hook_entity_bundle_delete()
 *
 * Individual revisions of an entity can also be deleted:
 * @code
 * $storage->deleteRevision($revision_id);
 * @endcode
 * This operation invokes the following operations and hooks:
 * - Revision is loaded (see @ref load above).
 * - Revision and field information is removed from the database.
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_revision_delete()
 * - hook_entity_revision_delete()
 *
 * @section view View/render operations
 * To make a render array for a loaded entity:
 * @code
 * // You can omit the language ID if the default language is being used.
186
 * $build = $view_builder->view($entity, 'view_mode_name', $language->getId());
187 188 189 190 191 192 193 194 195 196 197 198 199 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235 236
 * @endcode
 * You can also use the viewMultiple() method to view multiple entities.
 *
 * Hooks invoked during the operation of building a render array:
 * - hook_entity_view_mode_alter()
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_build_defaults_alter()
 * - hook_entity_build_defaults_alter()
 *
 * View builders for some types override these hooks, notably:
 * - The Tour view builder does not invoke any hooks.
 * - The Block view builder invokes hook_block_view_alter() and
 *   hook_block_view_BASE_BLOCK_ID_alter(). Note that in other view builders,
 *   the view alter hooks are run later in the process.
 *
 * During the rendering operation, the default entity viewer runs the following
 * hooks and operations in the pre-render step:
 * - hook_entity_view_display_alter()
 * - hook_entity_prepare_view()
 * - Entity fields are loaded, and render arrays are built for them using
 *   their formatters.
 * - hook_entity_display_build_alter()
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_view()
 * - hook_entity_view()
 * - hook_ENTITY_TYPE_view_alter()
 * - hook_entity_view_alter()
 *
 * Some specific builders have specific hooks:
 * - The Node view builder invokes hook_node_links_alter().
 * - The Comment view builder invokes hook_comment_links_alter().
 *
 * After this point in rendering, the theme system takes over. See the
 * @link theme_render Theme system and render API topic @endlink for more
 * information.
 *
 * @section misc Other entity hooks
 * Some types of entities invoke hooks for specific operations:
 * - Searching nodes:
 *   - hook_ranking()
 *   - Query is executed to find matching nodes
 *   - Resulting node is loaded
 *   - Node render array is built
 *   - comment_node_update_index() is called (this adds "N comments" text)
 *   - hook_node_search_result()
 * - Search indexing nodes:
 *   - Node is loaded
 *   - Node render array is built
 *   - hook_node_update_index()

/**
 * @defgroup entity_api Entity API
 * @{
 * Describes how to define and manipulate content and configuration entities.
 *
 * Entities, in Drupal, are objects that are used for persistent storage of
 * content and configuration information. See the
 * @link info_types Information types topic @endlink for an overview of the
 * different types of information, and the
 * @link config_api Configuration API topic @endlink for more about the
 * configuration API.
 *
 * Each entity is an instance of a particular "entity type". Some content entity
 * types have sub-types, which are known as "bundles", while for other entity
 * types, there is only a single bundle. For example, the Node content entity
 * type, which is used for the main content pages in Drupal, has bundles that
 * are known as "content types", while the User content type, which is used for
 * user accounts, has only one bundle.
 *
 * The sections below have more information about entities and the Entity API;
257 258
 * for more detailed information, see
 * https://www.drupal.org/developing/api/entity.
259 260 261 262 263 264 265 266
 *
 * @section define Defining an entity type
 * Entity types are defined by modules, using Drupal's Plugin API (see the
 * @link plugin_api Plugin API topic @endlink for more information about plugins
 * in general). Here are the steps to follow to define a new entity type:
 * - Choose a unique machine name, or ID, for your entity type. This normally
 *   starts with (or is the same as) your module's machine name. It should be
 *   as short as possible, and may not exceed 32 characters.
267 268
 * - Define an interface for your entity's get/set methods, usually extending
 *   either \Drupal\Core\Config\Entity\ConfigEntityInterface or
269 270 271 272 273 274 275 276 277 278
 *   \Drupal\Core\Entity\ContentEntityInterface.
 * - Define a class for your entity, implementing your interface and extending
 *   either \Drupal\Core\Config\Entity\ConfigEntityBase or
 *   \Drupal\Core\Entity\ContentEntityBase, with annotation for
 *   \@ConfigEntityType or \@ContentEntityType in its documentation block.
 * - The 'id' annotation gives the entity type ID, and the 'label' annotation
 *   gives the human-readable name of the entity type. If you are defining a
 *   content entity type that uses bundles, the 'bundle_label' annotation gives
 *   the human-readable name to use for a bundle of this entity type (for
 *   example, "Content type" for the Node entity).
279 280
 * - The annotation will refer to several handler classes, which you will also
 *   need to define:
281 282 283 284 285 286 287 288 289 290 291 292 293 294 295 296 297 298 299
 *   - list_builder: Define a class that extends
 *     \Drupal\Core\Config\Entity\ConfigEntityListBuilder (for configuration
 *     entities) or \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityListBuilder (for content
 *     entities), to provide an administrative overview for your entities.
 *   - add and edit forms, or default form: Define a class (or two) that
 *     extend(s) \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityForm to provide add and edit forms
 *     for your entities. For content entities, base class
 *     \Drupal\Core\Entity\ContentEntityForm is a better starting point.
 *   - delete form: Define a class that extends
 *     \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityConfirmFormBase to provide a delete
 *     confirmation form for your entities.
 *   - view_builder: For content entities and config entities that need to be
 *     viewed, define a class that implements
 *     \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityViewBuilderInterface (usually extending
 *     \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityViewBuilder), to display a single entity.
 *   - translation: For translatable content entities (if the 'translatable'
 *     annotation has value TRUE), define a class that extends
 *     \Drupal\content_translation\ContentTranslationHandler, to translate
 *     the content. Configuration translation is handled automatically by the
300
 *     Configuration Translation module, without the need of a handler class.
301
 *   - access: If your configuration entity has complex permissions, you might
302 303
 *     need an access control handling, implementing
 *     \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityAccessControlHandlerInterface, but most entities
304
 *     can just use the 'admin_permission' annotation instead. Note that if you
305
 *     are creating your own access control handler, you should override the
306 307 308
 *     checkAccess() and checkCreateAccess() methods, not access().
 *   - storage: A class implementing
 *     \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityStorageInterface. If not specified, content
309
 *     entities will use \Drupal\Core\Entity\Sql\SqlContentEntityStorage, and
310 311
 *     config entities will use \Drupal\Core\Config\Entity\ConfigEntityStorage.
 *     You can extend one of these classes to provide custom behavior.
312
 *   - views_data: A class implementing \Drupal\views\EntityViewsDataInterface
313 314
 *     to provide views data for the entity type. You can autogenerate most of
 *     the views data by extending \Drupal\views\EntityViewsData.
315 316 317
 * - For content entities, the annotation will refer to a number of database
 *   tables and their fields. These annotation properties, such as 'base_table',
 *   'data_table', 'entity_keys', etc., are documented on
318
 *   \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityType.
319 320 321 322 323
 * - For content entities that are displayed on their own pages, the annotation
 *   will refer to a 'uri_callback' function, which takes an object of the
 *   entity interface you have defined as its parameter, and returns routing
 *   information for the entity page; see node_uri() for an example. You will
 *   also need to add a corresponding route to your module's routing.yml file;
324
 *   see the entity.node.canonical route in node.routing.yml for an example, and see
325
 *   @ref sec_routes below for some notes.
326 327 328
 * - Optionally, instead of defining routes, routes can be auto generated by
 *   providing a route handler. See @ref sec_routes. Otherwise, define routes
 *   and links for the various URLs associated with the entity.
329
 *   These go into the 'links' annotation, with the link type as the key, and
330 331 332 333
 *   the path of this link template as the value. The corresponding route
 *   requires the following route name:
 *   "entity.$entity_type_id.$link_template_type". See @ref sec_routes below for
 *   some routing notes. Typical link types are:
334 335 336 337 338
 *   - canonical: Default link, either to view (if entities are viewed on their
 *     own pages) or edit the entity.
 *   - delete-form: Confirmation form to delete the entity.
 *   - edit-form: Editing form.
 *   - Other link types specific to your entity type can also be defined.
339 340 341 342 343
 * - If your content entity is fieldable, provide 'field_ui_base_route'
 *   annotation, giving the name of the route that the Manage Fields, Manage
 *   Display, and Manage Form Display pages from the Field UI module will be
 *   attached to. This is usually the bundle settings edit page, or an entity
 *   type settings page if there are no bundles.
344 345 346 347 348 349 350 351 352 353
 * - If your content entity has bundles, you will also need to define a second
 *   plugin to handle the bundles. This plugin is itself a configuration entity
 *   type, so follow the steps here to define it. The machine name ('id'
 *   annotation) of this configuration entity class goes into the
 *   'bundle_entity_type' annotation on the entity type class. For example, for
 *   the Node entity, the bundle class is \Drupal\node\Entity\NodeType, whose
 *   machine name is 'node_type'. This is the annotation value for
 *   'bundle_entity_type' on the \Drupal\node\Entity\Node class. Also, the
 *   bundle config entity type annotation must have a 'bundle_of' entry,
 *   giving the machine name of the entity type it is acting as a bundle for.
354
 *   These machine names are considered permanent, they may not be renamed.
355 356 357 358 359 360 361
 * - Additional annotations can be seen on entity class examples such as
 *   \Drupal\node\Entity\Node (content) and \Drupal\user\Entity\Role
 *   (configuration). These annotations are documented on
 *   \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityType.
 *
 * @section sec_routes Entity routes
 * Entity routes, like other routes, are defined in *.routing.yml files; see
362 363 364 365
 * the @link routing Routing API @endlink topic for more information. Entities
 * may alternatively use an auto route provider class; there is an example of
 * this at the end of this section. If providing routes directly, here is a
 * typical entry, for the block configure form:
366
 * @code
367
 * entity.block.edit_form:
368 369 370 371 372 373 374 375 376 377 378 379 380 381
 *   path: '/admin/structure/block/manage/{block}'
 *   defaults:
 *     _entity_form: 'block.default'
 *     _title: 'Configure block'
 *   requirements:
 *     _entity_access: 'block.update'
 * @endcode
 * Some notes:
 * - path: The {block} in the path is a placeholder, which (for an entity) must
 *   always take the form of {machine_name_of_entity_type}. In the URL, the
 *   placeholder value will be the ID of an entity item. When the route is used,
 *   the entity system will load the corresponding entity item and pass it in as
 *   an object to the controller for the route.
 * - defaults: For entity form routes, use _entity_form rather than the generic
382
 *   _controller or _form. The value is composed of the entity type machine name
383 384 385 386
 *   and a form handler type from the entity annotation (see @ref define above
 *   more more on handlers and annotation). So, in this example, block.default
 *   refers to the 'default' form handler on the block entity type, whose
 *   annotation contains:
387
 *   @code
388
 *   handlers = {
389 390 391
 *     "form" = {
 *       "default" = "Drupal\block\BlockForm",
 *   @endcode
392 393 394 395 396 397 398 399 400 401 402 403 404
 * - Instead of putting the routes for your entity in a *.routing.yml file, you
 *   can instead use a route provider class.
 *   \Drupal\Core\Entity\Routing\DefaultHtmlRouteProvider provides canonical,
 *   edit-form, and delete-form routes;
 *   \Drupal\Core\Entity\Routing\AdminHtmlRouteProvider provides the same
 *   routes, set up to use the administrative theme for edit and delete pages.
 *   You can also create your own class. To use a route provider class, add
 *   lines like the following to your entity annotation:
 *   @code
 *   handlers = {
 *     "route_provider" = {
 *       "html" = "Drupal\Core\Entity\Routing\DefaultHtmlRouteProvider",
 *   @endcode
405 406 407 408 409 410 411 412 413 414 415 416 417 418 419 420 421 422 423 424 425 426 427 428 429 430 431 432 433 434 435 436 437 438 439 440 441 442 443 444 445 446 447 448
 *
 * @section bundle Defining a content entity bundle
 * For entity types that use bundles, such as Node (bundles are content types)
 * and Taxonomy (bundles are vocabularies), modules and install profiles can
 * define bundles by supplying default configuration in their config/install
 * directories. (See the @link config_api Configuration API topic @endlink for
 * general information about configuration.)
 *
 * There are several good examples of this in Drupal Core:
 * - The Forum module defines a content type in node.type.forum.yml and a
 *   vocabulary in taxonomy.vocabulary.forums.yml
 * - The Book module defines a content type in node.type.book.yml
 * - The Standard install profile defines Page and Article content types in
 *   node.type.page.yml and node.type.article.yml, a Tags vocabulary in
 *   taxonomy.vocabulary.tags.yml, and a Node comment type in
 *   comment.type.comment.yml. This profile's configuration is especially
 *   instructive, because it also adds several fields to the Article type, and
 *   it sets up view and form display modes for the node types.
 *
 * @section load_query Loading, querying, and rendering entities
 * To load entities, use the entity storage manager, which is an object
 * implementing \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityStorageInterface that you can
 * retrieve with:
 * @code
 * $storage = \Drupal::entityManager()->getStorage('your_entity_type');
 * // Or if you have a $container variable:
 * $storage = $container->get('entity.manager')->getStorage('your_entity_type');
 * @endcode
 * Here, 'your_entity_type' is the machine name of your entity type ('id'
 * annotation on the entity class), and note that you should use dependency
 * injection to retrieve this object if possible. See the
 * @link container Services and Dependency Injection topic @endlink for more
 * about how to properly retrieve services.
 *
 * To query to find entities to load, use an entity query, which is a object
 * implementing \Drupal\Core\Entity\Query\QueryInterface that you can retrieve
 * with:
 * @code
 * // Simple query:
 * $query = \Drupal::entityQuery('your_entity_type');
 * // Or, if you have a $container variable:
 * $query_service = $container->get('entity.query');
 * $query = $query_service->get('your_entity_type');
 * @endcode

 * implements \Drupal\Core\Entity\Query\QueryAggregateInterface:
 * @code
 * $query \Drupal::entityQueryAggregate('your_entity_type');
 * // Or:
 * $query = $query_service->getAggregate('your_entity_type');
 * @endcode
 * Also, you should use dependency injection to get this object if
 * possible; the service you need is entity.query, and its methods getQuery()
 * or getAggregateQuery() will get the query object.
 *
 * In either case, you can then add conditions to your query, using methods
 * like condition(), exists(), etc. on $query; add sorting, pager, and range
 * if needed, and execute the query to return a list of entity IDs that match
 * the query.
 *
 * Here is an example, using the core File entity:
 * @code
 * $fids = Drupal::entityQuery('file')
 *   ->condition('status', FILE_STATUS_PERMANENT, '<>')
 *   ->condition('changed', REQUEST_TIME - $age, '<')
 *   ->range(0, 100)
 *   ->execute();
 * $files = $storage->loadMultiple($fids);
 * @endcode
 *
 * The normal way of viewing entities is by using a route, as described in the
 * sections above. If for some reason you need to render an entity in code in a
 * particular view mode, you can use an entity view builder, which is an object
 * implementing \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityViewBuilderInterface that you can
 * retrieve with:
 * @code
 * $view_builder = \Drupal::entityManager()->getViewBuilder('your_entity_type');
 * // Or if you have a $container variable:
 * $view_builder = $container->get('entity.manager')->getViewBuilder('your_entity_type');
 * @endcode
 * Then, to build and render the entity:
 * @code
487 488 489
 * // You can omit the language ID, by default the current content language will
 * // be used. If no translation is available for the current language, fallback
 * // rules will be used.
490
 * $build = $view_builder->view($entity, 'view_mode_name', $language->getId());
491 492 493 494 495 496 497 498 499 500 501 502 503 504 505 506 507
 * // $build is a render array.
 * $rendered = drupal_render($build);
 * @endcode
 *
 * @section sec_access Access checking on entities
 * Entity types define their access permission scheme in their annotation.
 * Access permissions can be quite complex, so you should not assume any
 * particular permission scheme. Instead, once you have an entity object
 * loaded, you can check for permission for a particular operation (such as
 * 'view') at the entity or field level by calling:
 * @code
 * $entity->access($operation);
 * $entity->nameOfField->access($operation);
 * @endcode
 * The interface related to access checking in entities and fields is
 * \Drupal\Core\Access\AccessibleInterface.
 *
508
 * The default entity access control handler invokes two hooks while checking
509 510 511 512 513 514 515 516 517 518 519 520 521 522
 * access on a single entity: hook_entity_access() is invoked first, and
 * then hook_ENTITY_TYPE_access() (where ENTITY_TYPE is the machine name
 * of the entity type). If no module returns a TRUE or FALSE value from
 * either of these hooks, then the entity's default access checking takes
 * place. For create operations (creating a new entity), the hooks that
 * are invoked are hook_entity_create_access() and
 * hook_ENTITY_TYPE_create_access() instead.
 *
 * The Node entity type has a complex system for determining access, which
 * developers can interact with. This is described in the
 * @link node_access Node access topic. @endlink
