Deprecation: #85113 - Legacy Backend Module Routing methods

See Issue #85113

Description

In TYPO3 v9, Backend routing was unified to be handled via the “route” query string parameter. Backend modules are now automatically registered to be a backend route.

The following methods are thus deprecated in favor of using the method above.

  • BackendUtility::getModuleUrl()
  • UriBuilder->buildUriFromModule()

Impact

Calling one of the deprecated methods above will trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.

Affected Installations

Any TYPO3 installation with a custom backend-related extension using one of the methods directly in a PHP context.

Migration

Use UriBuilder->buildUriFromRoute($moduleIdentifier) instead.

For example

BackendUtility::getModuleUrl('record_edit', $uriParameters);

becomes

$uriBuilder = GeneralUtility::makeInstance(UriBuilder::class);
$uriBuilder->buildUriFromRoute('record_edit', $uriParameters);
