How to handle PHPStan checks with Authentication and Authorization?

Authentication and Authorization use dynamic properties in the controllers, like this for example:


But PHPStan is obviously not happy with this:

Access to an undefined property App\Controller\PagesController::$Authorization. 

How can i handle this, so PHPStan is happy with it?

Add property annotations above the AppController like so:

 * Application Controller
 * @property \Authentication\Controller\Component\AuthenticationComponent $Authentication
 * @property \Authorization\Controller\Component\AuthorizationComponent $Authorization
class AppController extends Controller
    // Rest of the AppController

But Iā€™d rather recommend you take a look at GitHub - dereuromark/cakephp-ide-helper: IDE Helper plugin for CakePHP which can automatically add those annotations (and many others) to your code.

Also (for higher stan levels) you will need GitHub - CakeDC/cakephp-phpstan: CakePHP 4 extension for PHPStan
