Deprecation: #86366 - Methods in AbstractUpdate

See forge#86366


To ease the update pain a compatibility layer for AbstractUpdate based upgrade wizards has been implemented, that allows running "old" wizards on CLI (enabling extension authors to support both TYPO3 v8 and TYPO3 v9 with one wizard).

The following methods of class TYPO3\CMS\Install\Updates\AbstractUpdate have been marked as deprecated and will be removed with TYPO3 v10:

  • [not scanned] getTitle()
  • [not scanned] setTitle()
  • [not scanned] getIdentifier()
  • [not scanned] setIdentifier()
  • [not scanned] getDescription()
  • executeUpdate()
  • updateNecessary()
  • getPrerequisites()
  • setOutput()
  • shouldRenderWizard()
  • checkIfTableExists()
  • installExtensions()
  • markWizardAsDone()
  • isWizardDone()

The class itself has also been marked as deprecated, construction will trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.


Calling the mentioned methods through an extended class will trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.

All UpdateWizards extending AbstractUpdate gained cli capability since forge#86076.

Affected Installations
