I have a GTM script for login in Magento_Customer/templates/account/dashboard/info.phtml

        'label': <?php echo "'" . $block->getCustomer()->getId() . "'" ?>

        'visitorLoginState':'logged in'


I want this script to run just one time, when a user is logged in. Now if a refresh the browser the script run again.

Does anyone know how can i run this script just one time?

A know i can use registry, but i am in a phtml.

Thank you!


You can use customer session variable.

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$customerSession = $objectManager->create('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');
     ....Your Code....

Now to clear customer session after a customer logs out, You need to create an observer
Create a file etc/frontend/events.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="controller_action_predispatch_customer_account_logout"> <!-- use one of the events above -->
        <observer name="[namespace]_[module]" instance="[Namespace]\[Module]\Observer\Logout" />

Create observer file [Namespace]/[Module]/Observer/Logout.php and add below code.

namespace [Namespace]\[Module]\Observer;

class Logout implements \Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface 
    public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
        $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
        $customerSession = $objectManager->create('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');

  • what this ->getIsScriptRun()) means? – Alin Lupoiu Feb 8 '17 at 13:22
  • It is a session variable. First time it will not be set and will allow the script to run. then we have set value for the session variable using $customerSession->setIsScriptRun(true); so the condition if(!$customerSession->getIsScriptRun()) will not be true and the script will not run again. – Jaimin Sutariya Feb 8 '17 at 13:26
  • it works for the firs time. but if a try to login with another user the script it's not run again. can i do something to run when i logged in with another user? – Alin Lupoiu Feb 8 '17 at 13:35
  • You mean when you logged out from one user and logged in with another, at that time the script is not working? – Jaimin Sutariya Feb 8 '17 at 15:49
  • yes. it's not working – Alin Lupoiu Feb 8 '17 at 15:50
