I have done some modifucation to GetFileController.php so if the customer buy a downloadable product (a pdf file) then the pdf file are stamped with some information.


I would like to get the customer email, name etc.


When the customer download the file I have the information:



Are there "easy" way to get the customer information from the hashorder??

Yes, it is because I have done a modification in the GetFileController, so when it is a pdf file I have added a exception, where I use TCPDF to add additional information to the downloadable product (a pdf file).


And some of the information I would like to add to the pdf are who there have purchased the file (add a watermark with TCPDF). I can of cause from the download hash, get the order id, and from the order id get the customer, and then the info about the customer (with pure durty sql, but I do not thing it is a good idea.)

Hi Jesper, there are 2 paths to account for here.


1) The customer is already logged into the site, and clicked the download link from their email or order history.

2) The customer is not logged into the site, and clicked the download link from their email or order history.


In path #1, the customer context is already loaded, and you can simply access the customer object using this



In path 2, the customer is not logged in and therefore you have no choice but to use the information you have to locate the customer. You should not need to use any customer sql.


From the Order, you get the customer id and then create the Customer object

$customer= new Customer((int)$id_customer);
if (!Validate::isLoadedObject($customer))
//do something here


Personally, I alter the GetFileController and disable path 2, which forces a customer to log into the site. It prevents sharing of the download link.

Thanks bellini13


It works.


Here are my little hack in GetFileController.php each time the file type are pdf my code are used. The best soultion would have a checkbox at the product in the admin, where it should be possible to enable password protection of the pdf.


 if ($mimeType = 'application/pdf') {
  $pdf = new FPDI();
  if (file_exists($file)){
   $pagecount = $pdf->setSourceFile($file);
  } else {
   return FALSE;

 $tpl = $pdf->importPage(1);
 $pdf->useTemplate($tpl, 1, 1, 0, 0, TRUE);
 $pdf->SetProtection($permissions=array('print', 'copy'), $user_pass=$this->context->customer->email, $owner_pass=null, $mode=0, $pubkeys=null);
 $pdf->Output($filename, 'D'); 

 } else {
 /* Set headers for download */
 header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
 header('Content-Type: '.$mimeType);
 header('Content-Length: '.filesize($file));
 header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="'.$filename.'"');
 $fp = fopen($file, 'rb');
 while (!feof($fp))
  echo fgets($fp, 16384);
