I've created a new customer address attribute called 'landline' (required). I've used the code generated by https://mage2gen.com/ which seems 'correct' to me:

  • Attribute is correctly created and displayed
  • I can save the attribute from the backoffice

However, if I try to create a new address programmatically and set a value for this new attribute, I get the following error:

"Landline" is a required value.

If I create the attribute but it's not required, then the address is generated, but the landline field is empty.

This is the code I use for address generation:

$address = $this->customerAddressFactory->create();

                ->setData('landline', $addressData['telephone'])


As you can see, I'm using 'setData' for landline attribute. If I use: setLandline, the following error is thrown:

Call to undefined method Magento\Customer\Model\Data\Address::setLandline()

How can I save this attribute programmatically? What am I doing wrong? I'm using Magento 2.4.1

1 Answer 1


Please try using this

->setCustomAttribute('landline', $addressData['telephone']);

Happy coding

  • Thanks, that was it. I've looked for this answer in google and stackoverflow before asking and I didn't find anything. Hope this helps other people too!
