I'm following many articles but i'm not able create multi select attribute. and i'm getting following error.

a:5:{i:0;s:50:"Source model "" not found for attribute "exinent1"";i:1;s:3008:"#0 C:\wamp\www\magento8\app\code\core.

and my script is:

<?php
$installer = $this;
$installer->startSetup();

$setup = new Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Setup('core_setup');

$entityTypeId     = $setup->getEntityTypeId('customer');
$attributeSetId   = $setup->getDefaultAttributeSetId($entityTypeId);
$attributeGroupId = $setup->getDefaultAttributeGroupId($entityTypeId, $attributeSetId);

$setup->addAttribute('customer', 'exinent1', array(
    'input'         => 'multiselect', 
    'type'          => 'varchar', 
    'backend'       => 'eav/entity_attribute_backend_array',
    'label'         => 'exinent1',
    'visible'       => 1,
    'required'      => 0,
    'user_defined'  => 1,
    'option'        => array (
                'value' => array('optionone' => array('First Option'),
                         'optiontwo' => array('Second Option'),
                         'optionthree' => array('Third Option'),
                         )
                        ),

));

$setup->addAttributeToGroup(
 $entityTypeId,
 $attributeSetId,
 $attributeGroupId,
 'exinent1',
 '100'
);

$oAttribute = Mage::getSingleton('eav/config')->getAttribute('customer', 'exinent1');
$oAttribute->setData('used_in_forms', array('adminhtml_customer')); 
$oAttribute->save();

$setup->endSetup();

and config.xml is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config>
    <modules>
        <Exinent_Cusatt>
            <version>3.1.5.6</version>

  • You have to setup EAV resource model ... – Elavarasan Jul 1 '14 at 10:52

Thats it.. Just enable your module declare your code pool, And dont confuse with the numbers.. <customerattribute1404212233_setup> Its just random no for you attribute identity, for prevent duplicate entry. ..Cheers ..!

  • Actually My multiselect attribute is shipping terms.And I'm creating one module which contain entity with two columns(shipping term,enable/disable).So i need to map this entity to created shipping terms attribute options.Please give some direction to this. – sivakumar Jul 1 '14 at 11:52

Hi Elavarasan and Sivakumar ,

It is not good idea to call option code in static..... You just need to fetch using Eav table

$attributeId = Mage::getResourceModel('eav/entity_attribute')->getIdByCode('customer','exinent1');
 $collection =Mage::getResourceModel('eav/entity_attribute_option_collection')
                ->setPositionOrder('asc')
                ->setAttributeFilter($attributeId)
                ->setStoreFilter(0)
                ->load();

Surcemodel getAllOptions() should be

 public function getAllOptions()
    {

 if (is_null($this->_options)) {

        attributeId = Mage::getResourceModel('eav/entity_attribute')->getIdByCode('customer','attribute_name');
 $collection =Mage::getResourceModel('eav/entity_attribute_option_collection')
                ->setPositionOrder('asc')
                ->setAttributeFilter($attributeId)
                ->setStoreFilter(0)
                ->load();
        $this->_options = $collection->toOptionArray()

    }
    }
  • Actually My multiselect attribute is shipping terms.And I'm creating one module(using ultimate module creator) which contain entity with two columns(shipping term,enable.disable).So i need to map this entity to created shipping terms attribute options.Please give some direction to this. – sivakumar Jul 1 '14 at 11:51
  • i have tell you .Need some change Elavaras answer.Just change the code in source model code – Amit Bera Jul 1 '14 at 11:55
  • ok thank you.for example get all options is dynamic(getting options from shipping terms table).after installing script i disable some records(shipping terms).so it will reflect in customer account information ? – sivakumar Jul 1 '14 at 12:10
