I knew how to add attributes for product entity:

                'period_date_start',/* Custom Attribute Code */
                        'group' => 'Period Date',/* Group name in which you want to display your custom attribute */
                        'type' => 'datetime',/* Data type in which formate your value save in database*/
                        'frontend' => 'Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Frontend\Datetime',
                        'backend' => 'Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Backend\Datetime',
                        'label' => 'Start Date', /* lablel of your attribute*/
                        'input' => 'date',
                        'class' => '',
                        'source' => '', /* Source of your select type custom attribute options*/
                        'global' => \Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_STORE, /*Scope of your attribute */
                        'visible' => true,
                        'required' => false,
                        'user_defined' => true,
                        'default' => '',
                        'searchable' => false,
                        'filterable' => false,
                        'comparable' => false,
                        'visible_on_front' => false,
                        'used_in_product_listing' => true,
                        'unique' => false,
                        'sort_order' => 1

I found solution below, it can solve my problem

If you want to add more column into existing table of your module you could do following.

Step 1: Create UpgradeSchema.php under Setup folder. Get Idea from following code.

namespace Vendor\ModuleName\Setup;

use Magento\Framework\Setup\UpgradeSchemaInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\SchemaSetupInterface;
class UpgradeSchema implements  UpgradeSchemaInterface
    public function upgrade(SchemaSetupInterface $setup,
                            ModuleContextInterface $context){
        if (version_compare($context->getVersion(), '1.0.1') < 0) {

            // Get module table
            $tableName = $setup->getTable('table_name');

            // Check if the table already exists
            if ($setup->getConnection()->isTableExists($tableName) == true) {
                // Declare data
                $columns = [
                    'imagename' => [
                        'type' => \Magento\Framework\DB\Ddl\Table::TYPE_TEXT,
                        'nullable' => false,
                        'comment' => 'image name',

                $connection = $setup->getConnection();
                foreach ($columns as $name => $definition) {
                    $connection->addColumn($tableName, $name, $definition);



Step 2: Change the setup_version value in module.xml

Step 3: Run php bin/magento setup:upgrade command from CLI

  • Can you please explain this more clear. Because I have created the UpgradeSchema.php in my module under setup folder and I executed the command wahat you have mentioned above. But No custom attributes reflected in CMS page. Kindly help me. Commented Sep 19, 2016 at 11:26
  • The install scripts that I have seen have a command like $installer->getConnection()->createTable($table) after all of the definitions. Perhaps your data is correct but it isn't fully processing or attempting a save? I'm not sure if that createTable or a similar updateTable is necessary. Commented Oct 17, 2016 at 9:50
  • To be honest, this isn't the correct answer as the solution is impossible as worded in the question - I had the same problem as you. Commented Jun 15, 2017 at 13:51

I checked the source for the CMS module, and the way they're adding the attributes is good enough for me. I would prefer a setup object like category or product, but I see nothing wrong with this.

     * Create table 'cms_page'
    $table = $installer->getConnection()->newTable(
        ['identity' => true, 'nullable' => false, 'primary' => true],
        'Page ID'


Reference: https://github.com/magento/magento2/blob/develop/app/code/Magento/Cms/Setup/InstallSchema.php

  • It is impossible to add EAV attributes to Cms/Page model - this is currently the only option (2.1.4) Commented Jun 15, 2017 at 13:50
