I have added an product yes_no attribute named save_print from admin. It has successfully added and showing in product(admin). When I change the value. Value is not reflecting in back-end.

I have debugged into this and found that attribute value doesn't insert into database. I thought, It may be due to php post_max_size. So I have increased the value of post_max_size to 32M and upload_max_size to 32M but it didn't work. I don't why it is happening. Please help to solve this.

Here is the attribute database enter image description here Any help would be appreciated.

You need create column with name save_print in this table.



namespace Vendor\Module\Setup;

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

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]);
          "save_print ",
          'group' => "",
          'label' => "save_print ",
          'is_html_allowed_on_front' => true,
          'default' => '1',
          'note' => '',
          'global' => \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Eav\Attribute::SCOPE_STORE,
          'visible' => true,
          'required' => false,
          'user_defined' => false,
          'searchable' => false,
          'filterable' => false,
          'comparable' => false,
          'visible_on_front' => true,
          'visible_in_advanced_search' => false,
          'unique' => false,
          "frontend_class" => "",
          "used_in_product_listing" => true,
          "input" => "select",
          "type" => "int",
          "source" => "Magento\Config\Model\Config\Source\Yesno",
          'backend' => 'Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Backend\ArrayBackend'

All done, please run the upgrade script php bin/magento setup:upgrade to install the module and the product attribute sample_attribute will be created. After run upgrade complete, please run php

bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy.
  • Thanks for your reply. It works but it shows drop-down instead toggle yes no option. I need toggle. Jul 1, 2018 at 16:55

Continuously 4 hours digging into code, Finally I got the solution. In my case I found there are two table which has same attribute (save_print) record.

Tables are catalog_product_entity_int and catalog_product_entity_varchar

Both had a record of save_print attribute. As this product have int type backend_type and value of this attribute update in catalog_product_entity_int but fetching the value from catalog_product_entity_varchar So I have delete the record of catalog_product_entity_varchar and it works fine.
