Hello guys how are you?,

Here is my scenario, I want to add a new Action to an existing Magento route, what this mean, for example under the MyAccount section you can find /sales/order/[view, history, etc] right? I want to add a index like a a Order section dashboard.

I try to implement this solution: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/34908125/magento-2-controller-post-throwing-404-error without lucky.

Any suggestion?


So, you need to create a custom extension with the following file structure (for example adding new action to checkout/cart/):

Add action extension structure.

We need the following files to make it work:

1) registration.php


2) composer.json

    "name": "amasty/checkout",
    "description": "Amasty Test",
    "require": {
        "php": "~5.5.0|~5.6.0|~7.0.0",
        "amasty/base": "*"
    "type": "magento2-module",
    "version": "1.0.0",
    "license": [
    "autoload": {
        "files": [ "registration.php" ],
        "psr-4": {
            "Amasty\\Checkout\\": ""

3) module.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
<module name="Amasty_Checkout" schema_version="1.0.0" setup_version="1.0.0">
        <module name="Magento_Checkout"/>

4) routes.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
    <router id="standard">
        <route id="checkout">
            <module name="Amasty_Checkout" />

5) Test.php (adding /test/ action)

namespace Amasty\Checkout\Controller\Cart;

class Test extends \Magento\Checkout\Controller\Cart\Add

    public function execute()

And this is the result:

Test action result.

  • @Amasty, I want to add new custom tab for customer account.Could you please guide how I can do this? – mageDev0688 May 15 '17 at 11:13
  • @Amasty in routes.xml file you have to specify only id attribute of route node, and you are strongly advised to use a before or after tag's attribute to control the order Magento will check for matches in, to avoid accidental overrides of existing core controllers – Cristiano Casciotti Jul 12 '17 at 10:04
