Adding Automatic Actions

Adding a new automatic action is pretty simple.

Creating a new action

Your automatic action must inherit of the class Kanboard\Action\Base. Several abstract methods must be implemented by yourself:

Method Description
getDescription() Description visible in the user interface
getCompatibleEvents() Get the list of compatible events
getActionRequiredParameters() Get the required parameter for the action (defined by the user)
getEventRequiredParameters() Get the required parameter for the event
doAction(array $data) Execute the action, must return true on success
hasRequiredCondition(array $data) Check if the event data meet the action condition

Your automatic action is identified in Kanboard by using the absolute class name with the name space included.

Adding new events

The list of application events is available in the class Kanboard\Core\Event\EventManager::getAll(). However, if your plugin fires new events, you can register these events like that:

$this->actionManager->getAction('\Kanboard\Plugin\MyPlugin\MyActionName')->addEvent('my.event', 'My event description');

You can extend the list of compatible events of existing actions by using the same method.

Registering the action

You have to call the method register() from the class Kanboard\Core\Action\ActionManager:


namespace Kanboard\Plugin\AutomaticAction;

use Kanboard\Core\Plugin\Base;
use Kanboard\Plugin\AutomaticAction\Action\TaskRename;

class Plugin extends Base
    public function initialize()
        $this->actionManager->register(new TaskRename($this->container));
