enter image description here

  • have you added custom attribute to database? – Vish Mar 30 '18 at 11:18
  • You mean EAV which i wrote in installData.php file? – Avesh Naik Mar 30 '18 at 11:33
  • your attribute present in account section? And you are able to save from admin ? – Shashank Gupta Mar 30 '18 at 12:12
  • No it's just displaying the field but not able to save it. It displays in form and not save. – Avesh Naik Mar 30 '18 at 12:21

To add an attribute to customer EAV table, we have to use 'used_in_form' proper EAV implementation of customer attribute. Please check InstallData.php code where I have created customer attribute to insert company name.

<?php

namespace [Package_Name]\[Module_Name]\Setup;

use Magento\Customer\Setup\CustomerSetupFactory;
use Magento\Customer\Model\Customer;
use Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Set as AttributeSet;
use Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\SetFactory as AttributeSetFactory;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\InstallDataInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface;

/**
 * @codeCoverageIgnore
 */
class InstallData implements InstallDataInterface
{
    /**
     * @var CustomerSetupFactory
     */
    protected $customerSetupFactory;

    /**
     * @var AttributeSetFactory
     */
    private $attributeSetFactory;

    /**
     * @param CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory
     * @param AttributeSetFactory $attributeSetFactory
     */
    public function __construct(
        CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory,
        AttributeSetFactory $attributeSetFactory
    ) {
        $this->customerSetupFactory = $customerSetupFactory;
        $this->attributeSetFactory = $attributeSetFactory;
    }

    /**
     * {@inheritdoc}
     */
    public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
    {
        /** @var CustomerSetup $customerSetup */
        $customerSetup = $this->customerSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);

        $customerEntity = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getEntityType('customer');
        $attributeSetId = $customerEntity->getDefaultAttributeSetId();

        /** @var $attributeSet AttributeSet */
        $attributeSet = $this->attributeSetFactory->create();
        $attributeGroupId = $attributeSet->getDefaultGroupId($attributeSetId);

        $customerSetup->addAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, 'customer_company', [
            'type' => 'varchar',
            'label' => 'Company',
            'input' => 'text',
            'required' => false,
            'visible' => true,
            'user_defined' => true,
            'sort_order' => 1000,
            'position' => 1000,
            'system' => 0,
        ]);

        $attribute = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, 'customer_company')
            ->addData([
                'attribute_set_id' => $attributeSetId,
                'attribute_group_id' => $attributeGroupId,
                'used_in_forms' => ['adminhtml_customer','customer_account_create','customer_account_edit'],
            ]);

        $attribute->save();
    }
}
  • Yes i did but its still not working – Avesh Naik Mar 30 '18 at 12:00
  • This should work, which version of magento you are using? – Hitarth Pattani Mar 30 '18 at 12:13
  • Magento 2.2.2 ver – Avesh Naik Mar 30 '18 at 12:20
  • This should work on version 2.2.2 as well. Now there is only one way I can check and i.e. to check your code. Is there a way you can show me your code? – Hitarth Pattani Mar 30 '18 at 12:23
  • I posted my code below – Avesh Naik Mar 30 '18 at 12:54

public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
{
    $installer = $setup;
            $installer->startSetup();
    $customerSetup = $this->customerSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);

    $customerSetup->addAttribute(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY, 'prefer_feel', [

    ]);


            $prefer_feel   = $customerSetup->getAttribute(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY, "prefer_feel");

          $child1_firstname = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getAttribute(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY, 'prefer_feel');
          $used_in_forms[]="adminhtml_customer";
