To create a JSON type field in an entity in Symfony, follow these steps:

  1. Install the DoctrineExtensions bundle by running the following composer command:
1
composer require stof/doctrine-extensions-bundle


  1. Enable the DoctrineExtensions bundle in your config/bundles.php file:
1
StofDoctrineExtensionsBundleStofDoctrineExtensionsBundle::class => ['all' => true],


  1. Configure the DoctrineExtensions bundle in your config/packages/stof_doctrine_extensions.yaml file:

stof_doctrine_extensions:
    default_locale: en_US
    orm:
        default:
            timestampable: true


  1. Add the JSON type field in your entity class by using the @ORMColumn annotation:

use DoctrineORMMapping as ORM;
use StofDoctrineExtensionsBundleMappingAnnotation as Gedmo;

class YourEntity
{
    // ...

    /**
     * @ORMColumn(type="json")
     */
    private $jsonField;

    // Getters and setters
    public function getJsonField()
    {
        return $this->jsonField;
    }

    public function setJsonField($jsonField)
    {
        $this->jsonField = $jsonField;
    }

    // ...
}


  1. Update your database schema to reflect the changes by running the following command:
1
php bin/console doctrine:schema:update --force


Now, you have successfully created a JSON type field in your entity in Symfony. You can now store and retrieve JSON data in this field.
