I want a custom category attribute for my categories, so I have created a module with all the necessary files and code, in admin, I am able to see the custom field but when I am trying to save it the value doesn't save. For reference I am pasting my code, please suggest me where I am getting wrong or missing something.

/app/code/Belong/Categoryattrs/Setup/InstallData.php

namespace Belong\Categoryattrs\Setup;

use Magento\Framework\Setup\InstallDataInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface;
use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetupFactory;

class InstallData implements InstallDataInterface
{

private $eavSetupFactory;

public function __construct(EavSetupFactory $eavSetupFactory)
{
    $this->eavSetupFactory = $eavSetupFactory;
}

public function install(
    ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup,
    ModuleContextInterface $context
)
{
    $eavSetup = $this->eavSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);

    $eavSetup->addAttribute(
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::ENTITY,
        'alfasi_category_id',
        [
            'type'         => 'varchar',
            'label'        => 'Alfasi Category Id',
            'input'        => 'text',
            'sort_order'   => 100,
            'source'       => '',
            'global'       => 1,
            'visible'      => true,
            'required'     => false,
            'user_defined' => false,
            'default'      => null,
            'group'        => '',
            'backend'      => ''
        ]
    );
}

}
