Hooking into the Controllers

The controllers packaged with the NucleosUserBundle provide a lot of functionality that is sufficient for general use cases. But, you might find that you need to extend that functionality and add some logic that suits the specific needs of your application.

For this purpose, the controllers are dispatching events in many places in their logic. All events can be found in the constants of the Nucleos\UserBundle\NucleosUserEvents class.

All controllers follow the same convention: they dispatch a SUCCESS event when the form is valid before saving the user, and a COMPLETED event when it is done. Thus, all SUCCESS events allow you to set a response if you don’t want the default redirection. And all COMPLETED events give you access to the response before it is returned.

Controllers with a form also dispatch an INITIALIZE event after the entity is fetched, but before the form is created.

For instance, this listener will change the redirection after the password resetting to go to the homepage.

// src/App/EventListener/PasswordResettingListener.php
namespace App\EventListener;

use Nucleos\UserBundle\Event\FormEvent;
use Nucleos\UserBundle\NucleosUserEvents;
use Symfony\Component\EventDispatcher\EventSubscriberInterface;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\RedirectResponse;
use Symfony\Component\Routing\Generator\UrlGeneratorInterface;

 * Listener responsible to change the redirection at the end of the password resetting
class PasswordResettingListener implements EventSubscriberInterface
    private readonly $router;

    public function __construct(UrlGeneratorInterface $router)
        $this->router = $router;

    public static function getSubscribedEvents(): array
        return [
            NucleosUserEvents::RESETTING_RESET_SUCCESS => 'onPasswordResettingSuccess',

    public function onPasswordResettingSuccess(FormEvent $event): void
        $url = $this->router->generate('homepage');

        $event->setResponse(new RedirectResponse($url));

You can then register this listener:

# config/services.yaml
        class: App\EventListener\PasswordResettingListener
        arguments: ['@router']
            - { name: kernel.event_subscriber }
