Feature: #78036 - Synchronize folder relations after rename¶
TYPO3 features the File module where editors and integrators can manage all their media assets in a structured way. Certainly, one essential task is to rename folders from time to time. Since folders are sometimes referenced in other records, e.g. file collections or file mounts, these relations did previously break after a folder was renamed, because the reference index does not contain these relations.
Therefore, TYPO3 does now automatically synchronize all references of
a folder when it is renamed. This is done by registering event listeners
AfterFolderRenamedEvent event. This event is dispatched as
soon as a folder was successfully renamed.
To be able to automatically replace the old folder name with the new one,
the mentioned event is extended for another property
This property can be retrieved using the public
Note that the synchronization is always performed, as soon as a folder
was renamed. This does not only apply to the File module, but for every
ResourceFactory->renameFolder() call, since the event is being
dispatched in this method.
sys_file_collection records which
reference a renamed folder are now automatically synchronized.
AfterFolderRenamedEvent event now features a new property
$sourceFolder. Extension authors can use this event to add
further synchronization for their custom records.
