I create route, and controller for it. All works fine if i call route like so.


return $this->_pageFactory->create();


However when I want get user data from Magento\Customer\Model\Session inside controller i get error. I use $om to get data but i don`t know why it crash. I need user session for redirect to login form if user is not logged in.

        $om = $context->getObjectManager();
        $this->_customerSession = $om->get('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');
        $this->_resultFactory = $context->getResultFactory();

in execute

if ($this->_customerSession->isLoggedIn()) {
    return $this->_pageFactory->create();
$redirect = $this->_resultFactory->create(\Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultFactory::TYPE_REDIRECT);
return $redirect;

So question is how to redirect customer away from route if its not log in ?

  • Does this answer your question? How to check if customer is logged in or not?

  • Replace with $redirect->setUrl('customer/account/create/'); Commented Aug 3, 2021 at 10:13
  • redirect works i just don`t want to use objectManager in controller to create dependency. But when i add dependency to constructor it breaks. Commented Aug 9, 2021 at 7:37

Please use like below in your controller to get customer session.

 * Copyright © 2015 Zmagecommerce. All rights reserved.
namespace Vendor\Module\Controller\Index;

class Custom extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action 
    protected $_customerSession;
    protected $_customerUrl;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context,
        \Magento\Customer\Model\Session $customerSession,
        \Magento\Customer\Model\Url $customerUrl
    ) {
        $this->_customerSession = $customerSession;
        $this->_customerUrl = $customerUrl;

    public function isCustomerLogin()
        return $this->_customerSession->isLoggedIn();

    public function getCustomerLoginUrl() 
        return $this->_customerUrl->getLoginUrl();
