[Data objects] No inheritance in option provider #4956

By default the object provided to

cannot access inherited value of its parent(s) as AbstractObject::doGetInheritedValues() returns false.

To reproduce this:

  1. Create data option provider:
namespace AppBundle\Model\OptionProvider;

use Pimcore\Model\DataObject\ClassDefinition;
use Pimcore\Model\DataObject\ClassDefinition\DynamicOptionsProvider\SelectOptionsProviderInterface;
use Pimcore\Model\DataObject\Concrete;

class ExampleOptionProvider implements SelectOptionsProviderInterface
    public function getOptions($context, $sourceFieldDefinition)
        $options = [];

        $object = $context['object'];
        if(!$object instanceof Concrete) {
            return [];

        return  ['key' => $object->getName(), 'value' => $object->getName()];

    public function hasStaticOptions($context, $fieldDefinition)
        return false;

    public function getDefaultValue($context, $fieldDefinition)
        return null;
  1. Create data object class with:
  • input field "name"
  • select field. This select field gets the above data option provider
  1. Create object "parent" and enter "ABC" into field "name"
  2. Create object "child" below "parent" -> there is only an empty option as inheritance is disabled when getOptions() gets called.

Of course this can be fixed by explicitly calling AbstractObject::setGetInheritedValues(true) and later reset it to the original value - but imho there is no reason why inheritance is disabled here in the first place.
