Is there an event in Magento 2 for Newsletter Subscription from the Profile page?

How do I find out when a user updates their newsletter subscription preference from this page?

You can use the predispatch/postdispatch events triggerred by the controller action class. In your case:

  • controller_action_predispatch_newsletter_manage_save to observe a behavior BEFORE the save method is called.
  • controller_action_postdispatch_newsletter_manage_save to observer a behavior AFTER the save method is called.

Fernando Miguel's answer doesn't work, change




After that, you'll be able to get the subscriber ID. Or even get the email using


All these functions are available too:

 int getStoreId()
 $this setStoreId(int $value)
 string getChangeStatusAt()
 $this setChangeStatusAt(string $value)
 int getCustomerId()
 $this setCustomerId(int $value)
 string getSubscriberEmail()
 $this setSubscriberEmail(string $value)
 int getSubscriberStatus()
 $this setSubscriberStatus(int $value)
 string getSubscriberConfirmCode()
 $this setSubscriberConfirmCode(string $value)
 int getSubscriberId()
 Subscriber setSubscriberId(int $value)
  • On Magento 2.3.3, trigger "newsletter_subscriber_save_after" definitely works . Many thanks

  • yeah, three more times in one session, so that for sure) such a practice since Magento 1 only started there twice, as they say, they were verified - they started to start three times) Nov 11, 2020 at 14:50

Beyond controller_action_predispatch and controller_action_postdispatch if you want to work with model events just declare on your Vendor/Module/etc/frontend/events.xml:

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="newsletter_subscriber_save_before">
        <observer name="vendor_module_observer_myobserver" instance="Vendor\Module\Observer\MyObserver" />

On Magento\Newsletter\Model\Subscriber example you have $_eventPrefix variable. This variable will be used on Magento\Framework\Model\AbstractModel to generate dynamic dispatches for models at before and after events. Also on Magento\Newsletter\Model\Subscriber example we have $_eventObject to access the class methods as the following snippet observer example:

public function execute(Observer $observer)
    $subscriberId = $observer->getEvent()->getSubscriber()->getId();
    $this->logger->notice('subscriber ID: ' . $subscriberId);

Note that getSubscriber() uses get + $_eventObject = 'subscriber' value as described on var comments.
