I am trying to extend the Order Confirmation Email Template to add the custom attribute. When I am trying to add code to core class it's printing the value in the email template. When enabling to my extended module it's not printing the value.

For this, I have done code.


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <preference for="Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Email\Sender\OrderSender" type="ABCSolutions\SalesEmail\Model\Order\Email\Sender\OrderSender" />


     * Prepare email template with variables
     * @param Order $order
     * @return void
    protected function prepareTemplate(Order $order)

        $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
        $customer = $objectManager->create('Magento\Customer\Api\CustomerRepositoryInterface')->getById($order->getCustomerId());

        /** @param string $abccustomattribute*/
        $abccustomattribute = null;

        $customAttributes = $customer->getCustomAttributes();
            $abccustomattributecode= $customAttributes['abccustomattribute'];
            if($abccustomattributecode->getAttributecode() == "abccustomattribute"){
                $abccustomattribute= $abccustomattributecode->getValue();
                $abccustomattribute.= " Working";

        file_put_contents('Order1.txt', print_r("\n" . 'API: ' . $abccustomattribute,true), FILE_APPEND);

        $transport = [
            'order' => $order,
            'billing' => $order->getBillingAddress(),
            'payment_html' => $this->getPaymentHtml($order),
            'store' => $order->getStore(),
            'formattedShippingAddress' => $this->getFormattedShippingAddress($order),
            'formattedBillingAddress' => $this->getFormattedBillingAddress($order),
            'abccustomattribute' => $abccustomattribute

        $transport = new \Magento\Framework\DataObject($transport);

            ['sender' => $this, 'transport' => $transport]



After I have added the {{var abccustomattribute}} variable to Order Email template file order_new.html file.

Could you please suggest me where I went wrong?

You can try the following code to add Custom data in the email template.




<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="Anshu_Emails" setup_version="1.0.0">
            <module name="Magento_Sales"/>


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <event name="email_order_set_template_vars_before">
        <observer name="anshu_emails_variable_order" instance="Anshu\Emails\Observer\AddMyData" />



namespace Anshu\Emails\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;

class AddMyData implements ObserverInterface
    public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
        $transport = $observer->getTransport();
        $transport['myvar'] = 'My Value';
        if ($transport['payment_html'] == 'transfer') {
            $transport['payment_html'] = 'myvar';

Now you can call a new data variable as {{var myvar|raw}} in the new order email template. You can create a new template from Marketing -> Email Templates -> Add New Template

  • @fudu Why do you want to override the email template file? You can create email templates in admin. Oct 2, 2018 at 10:05
  • @AnshuMishra Thanks, i've got it few hours ago, I've come to admin page and create new email template.
