  • Seeion id you mean customer token or PHP SESSION id ? – Mohammad Mujassam Nov 14 '18 at 5:59
  • yes @MohammadMujassam, I want to add customer token in response data. – Nilesh Thote Nov 14 '18 at 6:14
  • You can write plugin for this method to append the token Magento\Customer\Model\AccountManagement::createAccountWithPasswordHash(), And to generate the token refer this magento.stackexchange.com/questions/175480/… – Mohammad Mujassam Nov 14 '18 at 6:26
  • @MohammadMujassam, can you please tell me from which file we get response data? – Nilesh Thote Nov 14 '18 at 10:21
  • Magento\Customer\Model\AccountManagement this is model where buisness logic is there and Magento\Customr\Api\AccountManagementInterface this is interface. You can refer the Answer given by Ramkishan and accept the answer if that works. – Mohammad Mujassam Nov 15 '18 at 11:12

Create a afterCreateAccount plugin of AccountManagementInterface. You need to create a new customer attribute as well. Your plugin code will look like below.


namespace Vendor\Module\Plugin;

class AddAccessToken

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Integration\Model\Oauth\TokenFactory $tokenModelFactory,
        \Magento\Customer\Api\Data\CustomerExtensionFactory $customerExtensionFactory
    ) {
        $this->tokenModelFactory = $tokenModelFactory;
        $this->customerExtensionFactory = $customerExtensionFactory

     * Add token to customer object
     * @param   \Magento\Customr\Api\AccountManagementInterface $subject,
     * @param   \Magento\Customer\Api\Data\CustomerInterface $customer
     * @return  \Magento\Customer\Api\Data\CustomerInterface
    public function afterCreateAccount(
        \Magento\Customr\Api\AccountManagementInterface $subject,
         \Magento\Customer\Api\Data\CustomerInterface $customer
    ) {
        $token = $this->tokenModelFactory->create()->createCustomerToken($customer->getId());
        $extensionAttributes = $customer->getExtensionAttributes();
        if($extensionAttributes === null) {
                $extensionAttributes = $this->customerExtensionFactory->create();
        return $customer;



<type name="Magento\Customr\Api\AccountManagementInterface">
    <plugin name="add_access_token" type="Vendot\Module\Plugin\AddAccessToken"/>


<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Api/etc/extension_attributes.xsd">
<extension_attributes for="Magento\Customer\Api\Data\CustomerInterface">
    <attribute code="token" type="string" />

Go into module.xml file and update setup_version to 1.0.1 and run setup:upgrade command. Let me know if any more help needed.

  • Did it work for you @Nilesh – Ramkishan Suthar Nov 14 '18 at 13:43
  • can you tell me how to add customer attribute and in which file? – Nilesh Thote Nov 16 '18 at 5:56
  • Please check updated answer. – Ramkishan Suthar Nov 16 '18 at 6:08
  • I have added eav attribute token as per your steps but getting following error : Fatal Error: 'Uncaught Error: Call to undefined method Magento\\Customer\\Model\\Data\\Customer::setToken() in /app/code/Vendor/Module/Plugin/AddAccessToken.php:26 – Nilesh Thote Nov 16 '18 at 6:37
  • What error, I hope you are aware about setup scripts. if you are not then I would like to let you know that InstallData only runs when your module is installed first time. If you want to run this for already installed module then run this script in UpgradeData.php – Ramkishan Suthar Nov 16 '18 at 6:40
