After a data migration, everything works besides my admin customer page. When I click I get an exception error. When contacting the author of the data migration tool he said I need to delete the is_contact attribute. I went into the database and deleted it. Went ahead and cleared the cache and ran setup upgrade and the attribute came back in the database. Thought I made a mistake, deleted again, and it came back again. How do I delete it? I am on Magento 2.2.3 EE.

Edit: Removed in the EAV Attribute table.

And you are sure that you deleted the attribute from InstallData.php and UpgradeData.php. Look for the project by the attribute code.

I hope that my answer will bring you closer to a solution.

  • I looked for both of those files in my IDE and I have a ton of them. Any idea how to find it? When I search for is_contact in the ide nothing shows up.

  • do you remove the eav_attribute from the table? May 15, 2018 at 21:46
  • Yes. That is why I can't figure out why it comes back. I should have specified that in the original post.
