Jira issue originally created by user jack@actinum.nl:

In some cases, the database-id of the newly created record is needed in some postproccessing steps, like sending an e-mail containing a link to the just created entity. I've recently seen the added support for PostFlush, but this is not a lifecycle event.

class SomeEntityClass{

/*** @PostFlush **/
function sendSomeEmail(){
        'Hi, you're new invoice can be found online: http://www.example.com/invoices/invoice_'.$this->id


Perhaps it's even possible to have multiple PostFlush events, that differentiate between the first time a record is created, and when the record is merely updated.

Okay, please ignore this issue, as I now see that the @PostPersist does exactly what I need. I was thrown by the name, because to me, the order in which stuff happens is persist -> flush. The ID's are only known after flush, so i'd expected something like postflush to exist. Sorry.
