6.x actions.inc actions_get_all_actions()
7.x actions.inc actions_get_all_actions()

Retrieves all action instances from the database.

Compare with actions_list(), which gathers actions by invoking hook_action_info(). The actions returned by this function and the actions returned by actions_list() are partially synchronized. Non-configurable actions from hook_action_info() implementations are put into the database when actions_synchronize() is called, which happens when admin/settings/actions is visited. Configurable actions are not added to the database until they are configured in the user interface, in which case a database row is created for each configuration of each action.

Return value

Associative array keyed by action ID. Each value is an associative array with keys 'callback', 'description', 'type' and 'configurable'.
