  • I'm trying to update is_active column for logged in customer. But cannot get customer id in cron jobs.plz help me – Ramesh KR Jan 9 '18 at 12:59
  • You can not access customer session in cron. You could try to create an observer for 'customer_login' and do your logic within the observer. Eg in M1 magento.stackexchange.com/questions/58947/… – Renon Stewart Jan 9 '18 at 13:23
  • I'm not experienced in M1. So can you please tell me how to use cron in observers – Ramesh KR Jan 9 '18 at 13:31

You can not access customer session in cron (not impossible, but very hard to do). You could try creating an observer for customer_login and add your custom logic there.

To create an observer for customer_login

in app/code/Send/Sms/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="customer_login">
        <observer name="send_sms_customer_login" instance="Send\Sms\Observer\Frontend\CustomerLoginObserver"/>

In Send\Sms\Observer\Frontend\CustomerLoginObserver.php

namespace Send\Sms\Observer\Frontend;

use Magento\Framework\Event\Observer as EventObserver;
use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;

class CustomerLoginObserver implements ObserverInterface

     * @param EventObserver $observer
     * @return void
    public function execute(EventObserver $observer)
        $customerId = $observer->getCustomer()->getId()
        //custom logic here

If you want to go the cron route, you could take a look at how Magento implement the "Customers Now Online" feature in Admin -> Customers -> Now Online.

  • Thanks for your answer. Really helpful. But I need to get id of the user from session and make a crob job function for that specific user. – Ramesh KR Jan 10 '18 at 7:10

    You could use the above logic to store information into a db and then run a cron against that db. – Renon Stewart Jan 10 '18 at 15:08
