I have successfully created simple product Programmatically using magento 2.

But i have created a filed in back end and add that in product but how to fill that data when creating a product.

enter image description here

I have created my product by

$product = $this->productFactory->create();
                $product->setShortDescription($productname."Short Description3");
                $categories = ["3"];
                $product->setVisibility(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Visibility::VISIBILITY_BOTH); // To make product visible in both catalog,search
                $product->setAttributeSetId(4); // Attribute set for products
                        'use_config_manage_stock' => 0,
                        'manage_stock' => 1,
                        'is_in_stock' => 1,
                        'qty' => 1
                $product = $this->productRepository->save($product);

Like i have to add some custom data while creating a product Programmatically.How to do that ?

Any Help is appreciated.

  • Can you provide more information regarding the creation of the product so we can better understand the method in which you are using e.g. API / Patch / Install Data Sep 8, 2020 at 11:33

    You shouldnt really use custom_data as a attribute code as getCustomData is a reserved function. but you should be able to set your data value using setCustomAttribute('myattribute', $value); or setMyattribute($value); Sep 8, 2020 at 11:52

Custom attributes values in magento 2 can be set and retrieved by

Getting Value getCustomAttribute('myattribute')->getValue() / getMyattribute()

Setting Value setCustomAttribute('myattribute', $value); / setMyattribute($value)

  • By using getCustomAttribute i will get Magento\Framework\Api\AttributeValue Object ( [_data:protected] => Array ( [attribute_code] => custom_price_value [value] => 99 ) ) How do i will get value ?@Dave
