How can I pass dynamically route parameters to module.links.action.yml?

My code of module.links.action.yml:

  route_name: module.group_apply
  title: 'Subscribe to group'
  weight: 0
    - entity.node.canonical

My code of module.routing.yml:

  path: '/projects/{project}/usergroup/{group}/subscribe'
    _controller: '\Drupal\module\Controller\SubscriptionController::subscribe'
    _title: 'Apply'
        type: entity:node
        type: entity:node
    _permission: 'access content'

My subscibe function (actually):

public function subscribe(NodeInterface $project, NodeInterface $group) {
    return array(
        '#markup' => 'HERE WE GO!',

  • /projects/{project}/ /projects/{project}/usergroup/{group}/ this pathes are node-views (contextual filtered by a node-id) And I want to attach some functionality to the views as action links with the contextual attributes like: url.com/projects/32/usergroup/45/subscribe So that I can do some stuff with the information of 32 and 45 (two nodes) Commented Mar 19, 2017 at 8:58
  • This could work, if both routes, the appears_on and the target route have the same two parameters. But this is not what you have in the question.

  • Excuse me, my comment above is wrong. /project is a view - /project/{project} is a node - /projects/{project}/usergroup/ is a view - /projects/{project}/usergroup/{group} is a node. And i want to insert that action link on the node page of /projects/{project}/usergroup/{group}. Commented Mar 19, 2017 at 11:21

    I think you understand it now, alias != route, of course you can replace the missing parameters with fixed ones, but that's not the point

1、you can add class to process as follows:

2、you can debug in getRouteParameters function, localAction.php content as follows:

I was on the wrong track the whole time.

The right way is to use entity.node.canonical as route (/node/{node}) and using other variables from node itself in the subscribe function ($node).

Thank you @4k4 for your help.
