I have customBlock in product_view. How do disable cache for this?

1 Answer 1


I assume you want to disable caching of the block by PageCache module. There are two options available:

  1. Set cacheable="false" attribute in layout. But this will make the whole product page non-cacheable, probably is not what you want. Keep in mind existing issue with cacheable="false" on product view page
  2. Use UI components
  3. Do not set _isScopePrivate property to true in your block, this is deprecated functionality

    @Alex Paliarush I tried to set _isScopePrivate to true in my custom block to add a specific logo for the customer of tier price; but it seems not work. My custom block was not rendered by ajax.

    cacheable="false" disables caching for the whole page! This is a recipe for performance degradation. See inviqa.com/blog/how-full-page-cache-works-magento-2 for details about caching. Commented Jan 30, 2017 at 12:37

    @Rick.C "Do not use the $_isScopePrivate property in your blocks. This property is obsolete and won't work properly." Find this in magento guide: devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.1/config-guide/cache/…. I think this links is also helpful to guide how to disable cache in certain blocks. Commented Mar 15, 2017 at 0:57
