I have made the Address fields visible for customer registration by creating customer_account_create.xml

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <body>
        <referenceBlock name="customer_form_register">
            <action method="setShowAddressFields">
                <argument name="show.address.fields" xsi:type="boolean">true</argument>
            </action>
        </referenceBlock>
    </body>
</page>

in MyCompany/MyTheme/Magento_Customer/layout

Everything displays correctly. But I want all the Address area to be optional except for the "COMAPANY". Telephone I can set from the backend. So what I want to set is: Street, City, State, ZIP, Country to all be optional i.e. NOT REQUIRED. Or if that can't be done - Deleted

The form is being rendered via Magento_Customer/templates/form/register.phtml

Is this possible?

I have found a solution you can remove the validation class from the phtml file.

Copy the file :

\vendor\magento\module-customer\view\frontend\templates\address\edit.phtml

into your theme as :

app\design\frontend\{VendorName}\{ThemeName}\Magento_Customer\templates\address\edit.phtml

change the validation class in the line 53

from :

class="input-text <?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr($_streetValidationClass) ?>"

To :

class="input-text"

To make it short: That will not work without ugly hacks :-)

The reason is that there are some constraints for addresses:

  • there is a backend validation for addresses. The method is Magento\Customer\Model\Address\AbstractAddress::validate(). Theoretically you can overwrite this validation by creating a plugin after Magento\Customer\Model\Address::validate() and implement whatever validation you need.
  • the customer_entity_address table has some not nullable fields, i.e. firstname, lastname, street, and you need to insert some value there

What you can do, if you need the customer's company name without address:

  • create a custom attribute 'company' for the customer and put it into the registration form. In thius case you don't need any address for the registration at all. Eventually you need to sync this field later when the customer complets and address.

For adding a custom EAV attributes to customer please follow this documentation: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/extension-dev-guide/attributes.html

There is as Setup example you might use. It's important to add all your forms in which you want to use the new customer attribute. You may also may change some code in your frontend templates depending on your theme.

Here is also a question with that topic: How to add custom customer attribute in customer edit account page

  • Can you please elaborate on creating a custom field for company – Pragman Feb 12 at 6:59
