#2581 - Compatibility with PHP 7.0

Closed Bug? created by mminnie 3 years ago

In PHP 7.0 there is a change:

From - Calls from incompatible context removed

Previously deprecated in PHP 5.6, static calls made to a non-static method with an incompatible context will now result in the called method having an undefined $this variable and a deprecation warning being issued.

When running under PHP 7.0+ the code in SecurityGroup.php breaks when making references to $this.


    function assign_default_groups(&$focus,$isUpdate)
        global $sugar_config;
        global $current_user;
        if(!$isUpdate) {
            $defaultGroups = SecurityGroup::retrieveDefaultGroups(); // <-- Class function called statically

In the function retrieveDefaultGroups:

    function retrieveDefaultGroups() {

        $default_groups = array();
        $query = "select,, securitygroups_default.module, securitygroups_default.securitygroup_id "
                ."from securitygroups_default "
                ."inner join securitygroups on securitygroups_default.securitygroup_id = "
                ."where securitygroups_default.deleted = 0 and securitygroups.deleted = 0";
        $GLOBALS['log']->debug("SecuritySuite: Retrieve Default Groups: $query");
        $result = $this->db->query($query);   // <-----   This produces a PHP Fatal error

Could all the references to $this->db be changed to $GLOBALS['db'] ??

    There are definitely a number of things that would need to be cleaned up. Yes, changing to the global db would do the trick.

    Do you have an ETA on PHP 7.x compatibility?

    Thanks as always Jason. Great product.
