I have added a customer attribute called "My File". It gets added in customer account edit form. By default, the selected file(My File) is saved under "pub/media/customer" directory. In my case, I want to save those files alone under "pub/media/my_files". How to achieve it? Please help me!

Creating attributes in InstallData.php



use Magento\Customer\Setup\CustomerSetupFactory;
use Magento\Customer\Model\Customer;
use Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Set as AttributeSet;

    public function __construct(CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory, AttributeSetFactory $attributeSetFactory, ProductMetadataInterface $productMetadataInterface)
    {
        $this->customerSetupFactory = $customerSetupFactory;
        $this->attributeSetFactory = $attributeSetFactory;

        $customerSetup = $this->customerSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);

        $customerEntity = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getEntityType('customer');
        $attributeSetId = $customerEntity->getDefaultAttributeSetId();

        $attributeSet = $this->attributeSetFactory->create();
        $attributeGroupId = $attributeSet->getDefaultGroupId($attributeSetId);


            $attributeList['my_file'] = [

        ];


        foreach ($attributeList as $key => $value) {
            $customerSetup->addAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, $key, $value);

            //add attribute to attribute set
            $attribute = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, $key)
                            ->addData(
                                [
                                'attribute_set_id' => $attributeSetId,

                                ]
                            );

            $attribute->save();
        }
    }
}

  • You use any extension ? If not then share your code where you wrote to save attribute value. – Vivek May 23 at 7:29

You can modiy code as per you need. I suggest you to observe customer_register_success event. More about observers here.

        $uploaderFactory = $this->uploaderFactory->create(['fileId' => 'my_file']);
        //Magento\MediaStorage\Model\File\UploaderFactory
        $uploaderFactory->setAllowedExtensions(['jpg', 'jpeg', 'png', 'pdf']);
        $imageAdapter = $this->adapterFactory->create();
        // Magento\Framework\Image\AdapterFactory
        $uploaderFactory->setAllowRenameFiles(true);
        $uploaderFactory->setFilesDispersion(true);
        $mediaDirectory = $this->filesystem->getDirectoryRead(DirectoryList::MEDIA);
        $destinationPath = $mediaDirectory->getAbsolutePath('your preferable directory under media');
        $result = $uploaderFactory->save($destinationPath);

        $document = $result['file'];
  • Thanks for the support! But if we use, customer_register_success event, it gets triggered after saving the customer details right? In this scenario, already the file gets uploaded in the customer folder, right? – Prema Karthik May 24 at 4:42
  • I dont think so. In observer you can change that behaviour. – Vivek May 24 at 5:12
