First, install Doctrine support via the orm Symfony pack, as well as the MakerBundle, which will help generate some code.

composer require --dev symfony/maker-bundle

Step-2: if you have not registered the maker bundle then go to the project root directory “config/bundles.php” and register MakerBundle

Symfony\Bundle\MakerBundle\MakerBundle::class => ['dev' => true, 'test' => true, 'prod' => true]

Step-3: Suppose you’re building an application where the Users need to be displayed. Without even thinking about Doctrine or databases, you have already created the User.php entity for using user info. Now open your existing entity class (e.g. Acme/Bundle/NotifyConnectorBundle/Entity/User.php). Define variables your need in a table column. https://symfony.com/doc/current/doctrine.html

<?php
namespace Acme\Bundle\NotifyConnectorBundle\Entity;
use Doctrine\Common\Collections\Collection;
use Doctrine\Orm\Mapping as ORM;

/**
* @ORM\Entity
*/
class User
{
       /* * @var string    */    
       protected $designation;
       /* * @var string    */
      protected $department;
}

Step-4: After defining the variable then Run the given below command. like (php bin/console make:entity –regenerate “namespace of entity class”)

php bin/console make:entity --regenerate "Acme\Bundle\NotifyConnectorBundle\Entity\User"
php bin/console ca:cl --env=prod;

if you want to check that what has generate MY-SQL query then run this command

php bin/console d:s:update --dump-sql;

this command update database schema in your database

php bin/console d:s:update --force;

After executing the command, now depending on what your defined variable will has been generated the setter and the getter method.
