Actions

  1. 7.x drupal/includes/actions.inc actions
  2. 6.x drupal/includes/actions.inc actions

Functions that perform an action on a certain system object.

Action functions are declared by modules by implementing hook_action_info(). Modules can cause action functions to run by calling actions_do(), and trigger.module provides a user interface that lets administrators define events that cause action functions to run.

Each action function takes two to four arguments:

  • $entity: The object that the action acts on, such as a node, comment, or user.
  • $context: Array of additional information about what triggered the action.
  • $a1, $a2: Optional additional information, which can be passed into actions_do() and will be passed along to the action function.
