I would like to get my current product in my phtml. I saw lot of examples with registry in the Block file, but now, in M2.3, it's deprecated.

Someone have an idea how to do ?


My firm recently contacted Magento about this. According to them, there is no alternative way implemented yet.

  • Ooh.. Did they explain why ? – Kozame Mar 8 '19 at 10:10
  • Not really. I use the registry class for now until they come up with an alternative. – Matthias_CompactCode Mar 8 '19 at 10:13
  • Seem you're right : another team say me the same thing as you.. :( – Kozame Mar 8 '19 at 10:51

I recently moved to Magento 2.3.2, and I had the same question

After reading this allready pointed out article (thanks https://magento.stackexchange.com/users/31910/shoaib-munir)


I found this implementation by @Vinai Kopp (https://github.com/Vinai)


Basically, this trigger an observer based catalog_controller_product_init_after event for grabbing the actual displayed product and push the result into a custom registry

So after that, you can have it in your Block like the below code, or use ViewModel as suggested by @Vinai

namespace Vendor\Module\Block;

use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;
use Vendor\Module\Registry\CurrentProduct;

class YourBlock extends Template

     * @var CurrentProduct
    private $_currentProduct;

    public function __construct(
        Template\Context $context,
        CurrentProduct $currentProduct,
        array $data)
        $this->_currentProduct  = $currentProduct;
        parent::__construct($context, $data);

    public function getCurrentProduct()
            return $this->getProductId();

     * @return mixed
    private function getProductId()
        return $this->_currentProduct->get()->getId();


you could also return the full product, but not sure, that is really needed

    public function getCurrentProduct()
            return $this->_currentProduct->get();

Hope this helps,


try something like this:

$myBlock = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance()->get('Magento\Catalog\Model\Session')->getData('last_viewed_product_id');

I found an article for depreciated registry in Magento 2.3. It is getting category from catalog session, I don't know if my code works or not but from this you will have a path where you need to do some debugging

Reference: https://www.atwix.com/magento-2/alternatives-for-deprecated-registry-class-magento-2-3/

  • I try this code, but it's not work for me.. I didn't understand this part : $this->catalogSession->getData('last_viewed_product_id'); because this data is never set in my project – Kozame Mar 8 '19 at 10:10
  • Oh, sorry to hear that, I don't have magento 2.3 installed that's why didn't tried it myself – Shoaib Munir Mar 8 '19 at 10:11
  • I think this is the only way of getting current product because Catalog Session stores in Magento\Catalog\Model\Session you need to do some digging on it – Shoaib Munir Mar 8 '19 at 10:14
  • Thanks for the tips, I'll continue my search – Kozame Mar 8 '19 at 10:18

    @Kozame: In that way you get only the product id of the current product, you need to load the product using that id and then you will have the object – HelgeB Mar 8 '19 at 10:33

To get the current product:

use block class: Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View

Get product using: $block->getProduct() in your phtml or use the class and get in the block file.

Hope it Helps.Happy coding!!
