I am using Magento 2.2.5

I need to hide a text attribute which I'm using to save serialized data of custom options of product.

Edit Product in magento backend

I think this can be done using adminhtml/ui_component/product_form.xml file, but don't know how.



You can try below steps to hide product fields

Step 1:

create catalog_product_edit.xml under app/code/Vendor/Module/view/adminhtml/layout

File : catalog_product_edit.xml

<referenceContainer name="content">
<block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="myattribHide" before="before.body.end" template="Vendor_Module::product/edit/fieldhide.phtml" />

Step 2: Create file fieldhide.phtml under app/code/Vendor/Module/view/adminhtml/templates/product/edit

File : fieldhide.phtml

    ], function($,uiRegistry){
        uiRegistry.get("product_form.product_form.content.container_yourcustomfield.yourcustomfield", function (element) {

Note : Please replace "yourcustomfield" with your attribute code

Step 3: Please remove static files and refresh cache

  • I have tried your way but unable to have the desired result, I have done and cleared cache like rm -rf pub/static/* var/di/* var/cache/* var/page_cache/* generated/* var/view_preprocessed/* && php -dmemory_limit=6G bin/magento setup:upgrade && php -dmemory_limit=6G bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f – Knight017 Dec 11 '18 at 9:35
  • can you please confirm JS is working or not . Also make sure you replace yourcustomfield.yourcustomfield with your field id. For that please right click and use View Source tool of your browser. – Pritam Info 24 Dec 11 '18 at 9:41
  • I have checked the file does not called at all. I have add console.log() after first line of script tag. – Knight017 Dec 11 '18 at 9:53

I have added below line in my install script to not display the attribute in product edit page in admin.

$installer->updateAttribute('catalog_product', $attribute_code, 'is_visible', '0');

I have found the Hide Attributes and Other Fields in Product Edit Backend reference from an older question.

CAUTION :: With this approach, I'm not able to display saved serialized data in fields.

This question is related with my other question in which I have mentioned how to save product's custom options in serialized form in attribute How to save serialized data in product's text backend_type custom attribute.
