I have created a custom product attribute using a module.

                'type' => 'text',
                'label' => 'Special Feature',
                'input' => 'textarea',
                'required' => false,
                'sort_order' => 12,
                'global' => \Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_STORE,
                'group' => 'Special Feature',
                'backend' => 'Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Backend\ArrayBackend',

The attribute is showing in the product edit page and getting saved. Now, when I try to get the value using $product->getSpecialFeature() in the .phtml file, it is not showing anything. I am looping through the product collection generated from the code below in my Block class.

public function getProductCollectionByCategories($ids)
        $collection = $this->_productCollectionFactory->create();
        $collection->addCategoriesFilter(['in' => $ids]);
        return $collection;

To fetch value of attribute Use:

First get Your Product Collection and then


e.g: $this->getProduct()->getAttributeText('special_feature');

or please use the productRepositry with get method by product id

  • What is $this? Where do I need to call this, in the collection loop?

Use below code

foreach ($collection as $product) {
    echo "<br>";
