The Connect SDK project template for php provides developers an complete skeleton to start their automation project using the Connect Fulfillment API together with the Connect SDK for PHP.


In order to use this template you will need an environment capable to run PHP scripts, any version starting PHP 5.6 is supported. Additionally please ensure that composer it’s functional.


You can download the quick start template with Composer create-project command in your terminal:

composer create-project --prefer-dist apsconnect/connect-quickstart-template project-name

Once you have the skeleton project ready you can start developing your custom code in app/ProductFulfillment.php file in the processRequest() method.


namespace App;

 * Class ProductFulfillment
 * @package App
class ProductFulfillment extends \Connect\FulfillmentAutomation

     * Process each pending request
     * @param \Connect\Request $request
    public function processRequest($request)
        // TODO: Implement processRequest() method.

     * Run the Product Fulfillment Request Processor
     * @return bool
     * @throws \GuzzleHttp\Exception\GuzzleException
    public function run()
        try {

             * run the application in custom context, any error
             * handling customization should be done here
            return true;

        } catch (\Exception $e) {

            if (is_callable([$this->logger, 'dump'])) {

        return false;

Testing your project

Test the ProductFulfillment class is quite easy, you just need to create your tests in tests/Feature/ directory by default the skeleton have some common tests.

Mocking the FulFillment API calls

To mock the fulfillment API, and with that test like if a request is retrived, you only have to create a valid json file with the response that you want in the tests/Feature/ directory with the name YOUR-TEST-NAME.http.json where YOUR-TEST-NAME is the name of the test file in where you want to use that fake response, for example:

  • ProcessSkipTest.http.json will be injected in ProcessSkipTest.php test.
  • RunAndFailTest.http.json will be injected in RunAndFailTest.php test.

Mocking other services

The skeleton also provides a easy way to mock other services, for this you only need to create a new service provider in tests/Providers, this new service provider MUST extends the MockServiceProvider. Inside this file you should configure your mocked service using the static property $scope to retrieve any auxiliary file like a fake json.


namespace Test\Providers;

use Pimple\Container;

 * Class HttpServiceProvider
 * @package Test\Unit\Runtime\Providers
class HttpServiceProvider extends MockServiceProvider
    public function register(Container $container)
        $content = '[]';
        $fakeRequestFile = dirname(__DIR__) . '/Feature/' . self::$scope . '.json';
        if (is_readable($fakeRequestFile)) {
            $content = trim(file_get_contents($fakeRequestFile));

        $body = \Mockery::mock('\Psr\Http\Message\StreamInterface');

        $response = \Mockery::mock('\Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface');


        $client = \Mockery::mock('GuzzleHttp\ClientInterface');

        return $client;

Finally you need to register your mocked service in the $providers property of tests/TestCase file.

     * List of Mocked Service Providers
     * @var MockServiceProvider[]
    protected $providers = [
        'logger' => '\Test\Providers\LoggerServiceProvider',
        'http' => '\Test\Providers\HttpServiceProvider'

The scope id has the format YOUR-TEST-NAME.serviceId.json where:

  • YOUR-TEST-NAME is the filename of the test that is running.
  • serviceId is the id of the service for example logger is the logger service id and http is the default Http service for the FulFillment API.
