  • Attribute is created, how to retrieve it by applying filter with 1? Nov 13 '18 at 3:20

You will need to add that field in category form so as to show it. Create an xml file on path: app/code/Vendor/Module/view/adminhtml/ui_component/category_form.xml

Add below code in category_form:

<field name="name-of-you-custom-field">
<argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
    <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
        <item name="sortOrder" xsi:type="number">10</item>
        <item name="dataType" xsi:type="string">boolean</item>
        <item name="formElement" xsi:type="string">checkbox</item>
        <item name="source" xsi:type="string">category</item>
        <item name="prefer" xsi:type="string">toggle</item>
        <item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Label of the field</item>
        <item name="valueMap" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="true" xsi:type="string">1</item>
            <item name="false" xsi:type="string">0</item>
        <item name="validation" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="required-entry" xsi:type="boolean">false</item>
        <item name="default" xsi:type="string">1</item>
