I'm trying to figure out how to inject Drupal services into a custom service class. The class in question is my MenuService which builds an associative array of menu items which will be encoded to json and sent as a response for my custom REST endpoint ( /api/menu/{menu_name} ).

As a part of that, I need three classes:




Any help on tracking down the MenuTreeParameters service would be helpful. I don't see it on this list. If it's not a defined service, can it be injected?

Alright, I think I figured it out. It should look something like this:

I couldn't find the service name anywhere for MenuTreeParameters so it's omitted in the examples for now.

I setup my menu service in rest_api.services.yml

    class: Drupal\rest_api\Services\MenuService
    arguments: ['@path.alias_manager', '@menu.link_tree']

And created my service:

namespace Drupal\rest_api\Services;

use \Drupal\Core\Menu\MenuLinkTree;
use \Drupal\Core\Path\AliasManager;
use \Drupal\Core\Menu\MenuTreeParameters;

class MenuService {

  protected $aliasManager;

  public function __construct(AliasManager $aliasManager, MenuLinkTree $menuTree) {
    $this->aliasManager = $aliasManager;
    $this->menuTree = $menuTree;
    $this->items = array();
