Deprecation: #100662 - ConfigurationManager->getContentObject()

See forge#100662


The Extbase-related method \TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Configuration\ConfigurationManagerInterface->getContentObject() has been marked as deprecated in TYPO3 v12 and should not be used anymore.


Calling ConfigurationManagerInterface->getContentObject() will trigger a deprecation level log message in TYPO3 v12, the method will be removed from the interface together with their implementations with TYPO3 v13.

Affected installations

Instances with Extbase extensions that use getContentObject() on injected ConfigurationManager instances are affected. The extension scanner has not been configured to find these calls, since the method name is used in different scope as well and would trigger too many false positives.


There may be instances with Extbase controllers that need to retrieve data from the current content object that initiated the frontend Extbase plugin call.

In this case, controllers can access the current content object from the Extbase request object using $request->getAttribute('currentContentObject') instead.
