I need to add country field to admin user creation.I have created that field.But I can't save that attribute value into database.For saving that new attribute I have used following observer event.


In Oberver

public function adminUserCountrySave($observer) {
    $currentUserId =  Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('user_id');
    $currentUserCountry =  Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('user_country'); 
    $userData = Mage::getModel('admin/user')->load($currentUserId);  

But it is not working, it shows Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 65488 bytes) in D:\xampp\htdocs\SVEP3403\lib\Zend\Db\Select.php on line 421. Anyone know please help.

Try bellow code in observer

public function adminUserCountrySave($observer)
        $user = $observer->getUser();
        $currentUserCountry =  Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('user_country',false);
  • As an explanation to OP, basically you run out of memory because your save() call is triggering the admin_user_save_before which triggers your observer and results in an infinite loop. Commented Jan 23, 2016 at 9:08
  • Yes, I removed that save(), its working fine.Thanks for your help. Commented Jan 23, 2016 at 10:09
