origUid

origUid
Path

$GLOBALS['TCA'][$table]['ctrl']

Type

string (field name)

Scope

Proc.

Field name, which will contain the UID of the original record in case a record is created as a copy or new version of another record.

Is used when new versions are created from elements and enables the backend to display a visual comparison between a new version and its original.

By convention the name t3_origuid is used for that field.

Note

The database field configured in this property is created automatically. It does not have to be added to the ext_tables.sql.

Examples

The following fields are set by the DataHandler automatically on creating or updating records, if they are configured in the ctrl section of the TCA:

EXT:my_extension/Configuration/Backend/BackendAjaxRoutes.php
<?php

return [
    'ctrl' => [
        'tstamp' => 'tstamp',
        'crdate' => 'crdate',
        'origUid' => 't3_origuid',
        // ...
    ],
];
