Deprecation: #51482 - Script-based modules

See forge#51482


Pseudo-modules that are registered via ExtensionManagementUtility::addModulePath() and modules that are registered via ExtensionManagementUtility::addModule() using the fourth parameter as a custom script-path have been marked as deprecated.

The method ExtensionManagementUtility::addModulePath() itself has been marked as deprecated.


All existing modules which are not registered via Routing will trigger a deprecation entry on registration of the module and when calling the module directly.

Affected Installations

All third-party extensions registering a wizard, module or route without using routeTarget or Routes.php, which have been introduced with TYPO3 CMS 7.


Use Configuration/Backend/Routes.php to register wizards and use ExtensionManagementUtility::addModule() when registering a routePath option in the fifth parameter to use the proper PSR-7 compatible way of registering and calling modules. Make sure to use UriBuilder and BackendUtility::getModuleUrl() to link to these modules instead of hard-linking to the script names.
