Deployment system

Fusio has a deployment system which allows you to store your complete Fusio configuration into .yaml config files. This allows you to store all config in a VCS so that you can easily reproduce a Fusio installation without sharing a database. The deploy system internally also only talks to the REST API which is used by the backend app. If you want to see a complex example you can take a look at our headless CMS repository which uses the deploy system to build a headless CMS.


All routes are stored in dedicated routes file which includes for each route a detail yaml file.

"/page": !include resources/routes/page/collection.yaml
"/page/:page_id": !include resources/routes/page/entity.yaml
"/post": !include resources/routes/post/collection.yaml
"/post/:post_id": !include resources/routes/post/entity.yaml
"/comment": !include resources/routes/comment/collection.yaml
"/comment/:comment_id": !include resources/routes/comment/entity.yaml

The routes detail yaml file contains all information about a route which you can also provide at the backend. In this example we use as schema model classes which we have generated. Your action then also automatically receives those generated model classes.

version: 1
scopes: ["comment"]
public: true
description: "Returns all available comments"
parameters: "App\\Model\\Comment_Query"
200: "App\\Model\\Comment_Collection"
500: "App\\Model\\Message"
action: "App\\Action\\Comment\\GetAll"
public: false
description: "Creates a new comment"
request: "App\\Model\\Comment"
201: "App\\Model\\Message"
500: "App\\Model\\Message"
action: "App\\Action\\Comment\\Create"


All models are generated through a TypeSchema definition. Please take a look at the gen/ folder which contains the script to generate the models based on a TypeSchema definition.


Each action uses a service to handle a specific resource. I.e. the comment create action only invokes the create method of the comment service so that the action does not contain any complex logic.

class Create extends ActionAbstract
private Comment $commentService;

public function __construct(Comment $commentService)
$this->commentService = $commentService;

public function handle(RequestInterface $request, ParametersInterface $configuration, ContextInterface $context)
try {
$id = $this->commentService->create(

$message = new Message();
$message->setMessage('Comment successful created');
} catch (StatusCodeException $e) {
throw $e;
} catch (\Throwable $e) {
throw new InternalServerErrorException($e->getMessage());

return $this->response->build(201, [], $message);


Through the command php bin/fusio deploy you can deploy the API. This command reads all .yaml files and creates/updates all resources through the API.
