Breaking: #78439 - Lowlevel FlexForm Cleaning parameters changed

See forge#78439


The CleanFlexFormsRecordsCommand is now using Symfony Console. The new command behaves like the old functionality, but uses certain different parameters. It can now be called with the following CLI command:

./typo3/sysext/core/bin/typo3 cleanup:flexforms

The following options can be set --dry-run to only show the deleted records -v and -vv to show additional information --pid=23 or -p=23 to only find and clean up records with FlexForm XMLs below page ID 23 (otherwise "0" is taken) --depth=4 or -d=4 to only clean recursively until a certain page tree level.

The PHP class TYPO3\CMS\Lowlevel\CleanFlexformCommand has been removed.


Calling typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh lowlevel cleaner cleanflexform will not work anymore.

Calling the PHP class results in a fatal PHP error.

Affected Installations

Any TYPO3 installation using the previously command callable via cli_dispatch.phpsh or the related PHP class.


Use the new CLI command as shown above.
