See forge#52217

Registering the signal: (in ext_localconf.php)

$signalSlotDispatcher = \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\GeneralUtility::makeInstance(\TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\SignalSlot\Dispatcher::class);

The slot class:

namespace Vendor\Package\Slots;

use TYPO3\CMS\Linkvalidator\LinkAnalyzer;

class RecordAnalyzerSlot {

     * @param string $table Table name of the record
     * @param array $fields Array of fields to analyze
     * @param LinkAnalyzer $parentObject Parent object
     * @return array
    public function beforeAnalyzeRecord($results, $record, $table, $fields, LinkAnalyzer $parentObject) {
        // Processing here
        return array(


Extensions may now perform any kind of processing for every record when validating content links.
