As per your reference example, attribute field will display in account information.

You have used Customer::ENTITY instead of 'customer_address'

You can use below code for create customer address attribute, it will display in customer address.

$customerSetup->addAttribute('customer_address', 'magento_username', [
            'type' => 'varchar',
            'label' => 'Magento Username',
            'input' => 'text',
            'required' => false,
            'visible' => true,
            'user_defined' => true,
            'sort_order' => 1000,
            'position' => 1000,
            'system' => 0,

$attribute = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getAttribute('customer_address', 'magento_username')
            'attribute_set_id' => $attributeSetId,
            'attribute_group_id' => $attributeGroupId,
            'used_in_forms' => ['adminhtml_customer_address', 'customer_address_edit', 'customer_register_address'],

It is use for display in admin and fronted customer address form.

'used_in_forms' => ['adminhtml_customer_address', 'customer_address_edit', 'customer_register_address'],

Let me know if you have any query from this.

  • can we show this directly in checkout too? What parameter should I add to used_in_forms to do so? – Vivek Kumar Jan 7 '18 at 8:02
  • can we show this directly in checkout only shipping address? – Magento2 Devloper Mar 1 '18 at 5:58

Adding a field to the customer address involves creating a new customer address attribute (see eav_entity_type table), assigning that attribute to a form, and adding the eld to the frontend.

Magento 2 does not automatically update the frontend customer fields.

Again, keep in mind that customer and customer address attributes must be included in a form (customer_form_attribute table) so they can be saved.
