I have to create a validation for the telephone inputs in Magento Admin. I need to set a min of characters like 8 and a max of 15. I'm currently using 2.2.8 version.

I tried to set the validation by admin using telephone attribute, but it didn't work. It inserts a class for validation but doesn't validate at all.


  • do you want this validation in system.xml file or in custom form?

  • Hi @MohitRane, I want it for the new customer form and billing and shipping form inside the admin, but I don't even know where to look. =( Aug 12, 2019 at 3:24
  • do you want this change in custom module functionality or you to want to change in Magento's default functionality?

Put the following code inside the telephone number block in your layout file

 <item name="validation" xsi:type="array">
    <item name="min_text_length" xsi:type="number">8</item>
    <item name="max_text_length" xsi:type="number">15</item>
    <item name="validate-number" xsi:type="number">0</item>
