Definition & Principles

Read the section in the Porto SAP Documentation (#Actions).


  • All Actions MUST extend App\Ship\Parents\Actions\Action.

Folder Structure

 - app
- Containers
- {container-name}
- Actions
- CreateUserAction.php
- DeleteUserAction.php
- ...

Code Sample

Delete User Action:


namespace App\Containers\User\Actions;

use Apiato\Core\Foundation\Facades\Apiato;
use App\Containers\User\Models\User;
use App\Ship\Parents\Actions\Action;

class CreateAdminAction extends Action

* @param string $email
* @param string $password
* @param string $name
* @param bool $isClient
* @return \App\Containers\User\Models\User
public function run(string $email, string $password, string $name, bool $isClient = false): User
$admin = Apiato::call('User@CreateUserByCredentialsTask', [

Apiato::call('Authorization@AssignUserToRoleTask', [$admin, ['admin']]);

return $admin;

Note: instead of passing these parameters string $email, string $password, string $name, bool $isClient = false from place to another over and over. Consider using the Transporters classes (simple DTO's "Data Transfer Objects"), for more details read the Transporters Page.

Injecting each Task in constructor and then using it below through its property is really boring, and the more Tasks you use the worse it gets. So instead you can use the function call to call whichever Task you want and then pass any parameters to it.

The Action itself was also called using Apiato::call() which triggers the run function in it.

Refer to the Magical Call page for more info and examples on how to use the call function.

Same Example using the call function:


namespace App\Containers\User\Actions;

use App\Containers\User\Tasks\DeleteUserTask;
use App\Ship\Parents\Actions\Action;

class DeleteUserAction extends Action

public function run($userId)
return Apiato::call(DeleteUserTask::class, [$userId]); // <<<<<


Example: Calling multiple Tasks:


namespace App\Containers\Email\Actions;

use App\Containers\Xxx\Tasks\Sample111Task;
use App\Containers\Xxx\Tasks\Sample222Task;
use App\Ship\Parents\Actions\Action;

class DemoAction extends Action

public function run($xxx, $yyy, $zzz)

$foo = Apiato::call(Sample111Task::class, [$xxx, $yyy]);

$bar = Apiato::call(Sample222Task::class, [$zzz]);

// ...



Action usage from a Controller:


public function deleteUser(DeleteUserRequest $request)
$user = Apiato::call(DeleteUserAction::class, [$request->xxx, $request->yyy]);

return $this->deleted($user);


The same Action MAY be called by multiple Controllers (Web, Api, Cli).
