php – Execute repository functions in scheduler task

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment


Currently I have an scheduler task, but I want to use function from my extbase repository (in the same extension).

I keep getting “PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function add() on a non-object”, no matter how I try to include my repo or controller from extbase.

My SampleTask.php:

namespace TYPO3\ExtName\Task;

class SampleTask extends \TYPO3\CMS\Scheduler\Task\AbstractTask {

    public function execute() {
        $controller = \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\GeneralUtility::makeInstance('\TYPO3\ExtName\Controller\SampleController');
        $new = new \TYPO3\ExtName\Domain\Model\Sample;

And correctly defined in my ext_localconf.php

Can someone explain me how I can access my Repository (or controller) -extbase- from my SampleTask.php.

Using TYPO3 6.2.

Thank you.

How to&Answers:

You are getting this php error, because you instanciated your controller with makeInstance(). If you use makeInstance to get the objectManager (\TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Object\ObjectManager) and use $objectManager->get('TYPO3\ExtName\Controller\SampleController'), the dependency injection inside your controller will work (e.g. your repository).

But you can use the objectManager to get the repository right away, so you dont have to call a controller action:

Something like this:

namespace TYPO3\ExtName\Task;

use TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\GeneralUtility;
use TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Object\ObjectManager;
use TYPO3\ExtName\Domain\Repository\SampleRepository;
use TYPO3\ExtName\Domain\Model\Sample;
use TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Persistence\PersistenceManagerInterface;

class SampleTask extends \TYPO3\CMS\Scheduler\Task\AbstractTask {

    public function execute() {
        $objectManager = GeneralUtility::makeInstance(ObjectManager::class);
        $sampleRepository= $objectManager->get(SampleRepository::class);
        $new = new Sample();
