Control entity operation access.

Parameters

\Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityInterface $entity: The entity to check access to.

string $operation: The operation that is to be performed on $entity.

\Drupal\Core\Session\AccountInterface $account: The account trying to access the entity.

Return value

\Drupal\Core\Access\AccessResultInterface The access result. The final result is calculated by using \Drupal\Core\Access\AccessResultInterface::orIf() on the result of every hook_entity_access() and hook_ENTITY_TYPE_access() implementation, and the result of the entity-specific checkAccess() method in the entity access control handler. Be careful when writing generalized access checks shared between routing and entity checks: routing uses the andIf() operator. So returning an isNeutral() does not determine entity access at all but it always ends up denying access while routing.
