8 – 7 action_example_unblock_user_action(&$entity, $context = array())

Action function for action_example_unblock_user_action.

This action is expecting an entity object user, node or comment. If none of the above is provided (because it was not called from an user/node/comment trigger event, then the action will be taken on the current logged in user.

Unblock an user. This action can be fired from different trigger types:

  • User trigger: this user will be unblocked.
  • Node/Comment trigger: the author of the node or comment will be unblocked.
  • Other: (including system or custom defined types), current user will be unblocked. (Yes, this seems like an incomprehensible use-case.)


$entity An optional user object (could be a user, or an author if context is node or comment)

$context Array with parameters for this action: depends on the trigger. The context is not used in this example.
