Get Data

Your plugin may need to get data from the application, such as submissions, issues, authors, users and files. Use the Service classes to retrieve information.

$submissions = Services::get('submissions')->getMany([
  'contextId' => $context->getId(),
  'count' => 20,
  'assignedTo' =>  Application::get()->getUser()->getId(),

If a Service class does not exist for the data you want, you may need to use a DAO.

$authorDao = DAORegistry::getDAO('AuthorDAO');
$authors = $authorDao->getBySubmissionId($submissionId);

Learn more about Services, Entities and DAOs in our developer documentation.
