This page lists hooks added, removed, deprecated or modified with each new release of CiviCRM.
5.31: deprecated hook_civicrm_tabs finally removed¶
5.25: hook_civicrm_postCommit added¶
5.11: hook_civicrm_pageRun invocation removed from CRM_Core_Page_Inline_Help¶
CRM_Core_Page_Inline_Help is the class that fetches inline documentation from
.hlp templates to be shown in help baloons.
hook_civicrm_pageRun normally does not run when fetching help, except in the (very rare) case that a site has been customized with an
.extra.hlp file, which potentially causes problems because the class
CRM_Core_Page_Inline_Help does not extend
CRM_Core_Page. The inconsistent hook invocation has been removed.
4.7.14: hook_civicrm_pre & hook_civicrm_post supports CustomField¶
Pre and post hooks now fire when adding, updating or deleting custom fields.
4.7.0: New hook_civicrm_selectWhereclause¶
This hook can be used to impose access limits on most entities fetched via the api by adding conditions to the where clause.
4.7.0 hook_civicrm_tabs deprecated¶
This hook is deprecated in 4.7. Use
4.7.0 hook_civicrm_validate removed¶
This hook was deprecated since v4.2 in favor of
4.5.0: hook_civicrm_enableDisable removed¶
The deprecated enableDisablehook was not reliably invoked every time an entity was enabled or disabled.It was removed in 4.5. Use the standard pre and post hooks instead.
The new API call "getrefcount" allows one to ask about references to a given record. Using hook_civicrm_referenceCounts, a third-party developer can modify the reference-count.
4.4.0: Add hooks for profile forms¶
Added hooks for
- "civicrm/profile/view" hook_civicrm_viewProfile,
- "civicrm/profile" hook_civicrm_searchProfile,
- "civicrm/profile/edit" or "civicrm/profile/create" hook_civicrm_buildProfile,hook_civicrm_validateProfile, hook_civicrm_processProfile).

4.4.0: hook_civicrm_searchColumns: Change of $values in profile-listings¶
When displaying a profile-based listing (such as "civicrm/profile?gid=XXX"), the $values represents a row/column matrix by providing an array of rows. Each row contains several cells keyed numerically, but one cell was inconsistently keyed by the string
sort_name instead of its numeric position. The
sort_name cell appeared early and affected the numbering of all subsequent cells. For greater consistency, the
sort_name will now be identified numerically, and other cells will be renumbered accordingly.
4.4.0: hook_civicrm_buildUFGroupsForModule: Change to $ufGroups¶
$ufGroups provides an array of UFGroup records. In previous releases, this array always contained the same fields for each record (
is_reserved, etc). In 4.4, the fields are usually the same, but they may vary depending on the context. See patches to CRM-13388
