I have used below code to update the custom column in customer_entity table, but the values are not updating in database.

$customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')->load($customerId);


It seems to be the save() is Failing. I have checked by Clearing the var/cache folder too.

  • What you is you custom attribute of customer??? $customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')->load($order->getCustomerId()); $customer->setWebsiteId(Mage::app()->getWebsite()->getId()); $customer->setCustomAttribute('887475748'); try { $customer->save(); print('Saved: '.$customer->getStripeCustomerId()); } catch (Exception $e) { Mage::throwException($e->getMessage()); }

  • You can do this code in controller action. First create customer object and then set custom value and save it.
