send an email to Admin when a User logins in frontend into his account. magento 2, using event and observer


Ok. So here it is.

                 // CODE NOT TESTED.

Your event is customer_customer_authenticated. And the dispatched method is this.

            ['model' => $customerModel, 'password' => $password]

Create a file inside the given path app/code/Namespace/Modulename/etc/frontend/events.xml. Add the below code inside that

<?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="customer_customer_authenticated">
       <observer name="customer_customer_authenticated_email" instance="Namespace\Modulename\Observer\SendEmailAfterLogin" />

After that create a file again in this path app/code/Namespace/Modulename/Observer/SendEmailAfterLogin.php. And the code will be this

namespace Namespace\Modulename\Observer;

class SendEmailAfterLogin implements \Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface
  public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
     // send email from here//
     // If you want to load template by id then try to do this.
     // Use Magento\Email\Model\Template; Create the constructor as per that 
     // and use loadDefault($templateId) function to load a template. 
  • Updated the function to give you an idea. Its not a full code but you will get the idea how to do that. – Kingshuk Deb Apr 10 '17 at 10:52
