How to get an option value based on the option id in Magento, or get an option id based on the option code ?

Example: how to get the color attribute option id 10 from the label "Red", and get the value "Red" if the option id is 10 ?


you can do it same as magento 1,

More information in details, Visit, Get Option id and Label from configurable product

//get option label based on option id from product object

$optionId = 10;

$attr = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('color');
 if ($attr->usesSource()) {
       $optionText = $attr->getSource()->getOptionText($optionId);
//get option text ex. Red

//get option id based on option label

$attr = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('color');
 if ($attr->usesSource()) {
       $option_id = $attr->getSource()->getOptionId("Red");

//get option id ex. 10
  • Can you tell me what is the use of $attr->usesSource() while getting attribute options – Jaisa Mar 21 '18 at 12:49
  • I got the options without the if condition what you have mentioned in your code – Jaisa Mar 21 '18 at 12:49
  • Can you explain , If i am wrong – Jaisa Mar 21 '18 at 12:50

  • Thanks, I used this piece of code but I am facing issues now. See magento.stackexchange.com/questions/256510/…. Is there maybee an alternative method to achieve the same result? – Akif Jan 2 '19 at 21:37

Best practice in magento is to do it via xml.

To get a standard attribute like brand you do something like this in catalog_product_view.xml for example:

<referenceBlock name="product.info.main">
    <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View\Description" name="product.info.brand" template="product/view/attribute.phtml" before="-">
            <argument name="at_call" xsi:type="string">getBrand</argument>
            <argument name="at_code" xsi:type="string">brand</argument>
            <argument name="css_class" xsi:type="string">brand</argument>
            <argument name="at_label" xsi:type="string">none</argument>
            <argument name="add_attribute" xsi:type="string">itemprop="brand"</argument>

This will get the value of an input attribute or textarea. If you have a dropdown you should use the text type, so add this line in the list of arguments:

<argument name="at_type" xsi:type="string">text</argument>

No need to create files or write any php code to get an attribute. This way you will have consistency and use the same attribute.phtml file for all attributes. If something changes you need to change it in one place only.

  • You just saved my day, I was not able to get 'dropdown ' text, and I found this. so thanks. – Arun Karnawat Aug 8 '16 at 11:26
  • Hi, @Cladiu Creanga I am trying to show the dropdown text in the checkout page using knockout js. But only the ID of the dropdown value is getting displyed. – skm Feb 14 at 6:01

Worked for me


i get a simple solution. this will only show the attribute value with the attribute code for a product. i have checked in catalog and details page.

the code is

<?php echo $_product->getAttributeText('size'); ?>

here size is the attribute name.

reference: vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/templates/product/view/attribute.phtml line: 35


Use Factory Method

   protected $_attributeLoading;

   public function __construct( 
          \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\ProductFactory   $attributeLoading,  
                                ) {

            $this->_attributeLoading = $attributeLoading;


   public function getAttributeOptionId($attribute,$label)
        $attr = $poductReource->getAttribute($attribute);
         if ($attr->usesSource()) {
                return  $option_id = $attr->getSource()->getOptionId($label);
   public function getAttributeOptionText($attribute,$label)
        $attr = $poductReource->getAttribute($attribute);
         if ($attr->usesSource()) {
                return  $option_Text = $attr->getSource()->getOptionText($label);

in phtml file

  • hi @Qaisar, can we create attribute programmatically without installer – jafar pinjar Jan 8 '19 at 6:09
  • @jafarpinjar yes you can do that. using same code. – Qaisar Satti Jan 8 '19 at 7:44

$product->getResource() has a DocBlock note about being deprecated at least in v2.2.2 and so I was hesitant to code using it. Came up with this solution instead inspired by the ones already on this page:

$optionId = $product->getDataByKey('attribute_code');
$optionText = null;
$attributes = $product->getAttributes();
if ($optionId && array_key_exists('attribute_code', $attributes)) {
    $attr = $attributes['attribute_code'];
    if ($attr->usesSource()) {
        $optionText = $attr->getSource()->getOptionText($optionId);
if ($optionText) {
    //do something with $optionText

For reference this is the method in AbstractModel.php

 * Retrieve model resource
 * @return \Magento\Framework\Model\ResourceModel\Db\AbstractDb
 * @deprecated 101.0.0 because resource models should be used directly
public function getResource()
    return $this->_getResource();
  • Where do you see this code in original Magento? I can't even find getResource() method in this model: github.com/magento/magento2/blob/2.3-develop/app/code/Magento/… – zitix Jan 12 '19 at 11:42
  • getResource() was a method which previously existed. In v2.2.2 as I mentioned it was already slated for deprecation. In the 2.3-develop branch I suspect it has been completed. Thus my example which does not require that function. – Joshua Fricke Jan 15 '19 at 23:59

you can use for getting attribute label


you can using object manager :

$pid = 1;
$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$pdata = $objectManager->create('Magento\Catalog\Model\Product')->load($pid);

$getlable = $pdata->getResource()->getAttribute($key)->getFrontend()->getLabel($pdata);

For everyone comes here.

If you don't have any product entity, you could retrieve an option value with this steps.

Inject \Magento\Eav\Api\AttributeRepositoryInterface to your class

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Eav\Api\AttributeRepositoryInterface $attributeRepository,
) {
    $this->attributeRepository = $attributeRepository;

Use the repo to get the attribute instance

// 4 is the default entity_type_id for product
$attribute = $this->attributeRepository->get('4', '[attribute_code]');

Use $attribute to get the option id from the option value

$optionId = $attribute->getSource()->getOptionId('[option_value]');

Please try this code

Step 1)First you have to load the products

$_productCollection = $block->getLoadedProductCollection();

Step 2)In the product listing page ,there will be a foreach loop for listing the products like this

foreach ($_productCollection as $_product)

Step3)Your code will be inside this loop.Place the below code at a place whereever you want to display the attribute label.


Just replace your_attribute_code with whatever your attribute is named.
