I'd like to get the following URLs in Drupal 8:

  • /user/register
  • /user/login
  • /logout
  • /user

I already know I can use \Drupal::service('path.current')->getPath() to get the current path. I want to build links to redirect users.

How do I get these paths programatically?

The user URLs (or routes to be more "Drupal correct") are defined by the core user module (core/modules/user/user.routing.yml)


  path: '/user/register'

  path: '/user/login'

  path: '/user/logout'

  path: '/user'

So you can programmatically build links to these routes like so:


use Drupal\Core\Link;

// Replace user.login with other routes such as user.page
$user_login_link = Link::createFromRoute(
  t('User log in link'), // The link text
  'user.login', // The link URL generated from the route

    Perfect, thank you! I'll still have to do $user_login_link->getUrl(); if I want only the URL, without the markup tho. Commented Sep 7, 2020 at 18:30
  • I haven't tried this yet, but it appears you can also use Url::fromRoute() api.drupal.org/comment/61929#comment-61929 Commented Sep 10, 2020 at 17:08
