In Symfony Doctrine, you can use the "orderBy" function with "rand()" to retrieve random records from a database table. Here is an example of how to use this in your Symfony controller:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
$em = $this->getDoctrine()->getManager();
$query = $em->createQuery(
    'SELECT p
    FROM AppBundleEntityProduct p
    ORDER BY RAND()'
);

$randomProducts = $query->getResult();


In this example, we are selecting random products from the "Product" entity using the "orderBy" function with "RAND()" to randomize the order of the results.


You can then use the $randomProducts array to display the random products in your application.
