Magento 2 Add Customer Attribute Programmatically

As we all know Magento uses the EAV model structure for the customer attributes. So, in this article, I am going to explain to you how to create customer attributes programmatically in Magento 2.

First of all, you need to create one module. If you already have a module then go with that. If you are new to Magento then check our another article How To Create a Magento 2 Module.

Let's get started!!

Now I assume you already have a Magento 2 Module.

As we all know, now Magento 2 introduce a new way to modify data using Data Patches in Magento2. So, in this article, we'll create customer attributes using Data Patch in our Magento 2 Extension

Step 1: Create AddCustomerCustomAttribute.php file at app/code/Vendor/CustomerAttribute/Setup/Patch/Data and paste the below code.

<?php namespace Vendor\CustomerAttribute\Setup\Patch\Data; use Magento\Customer\Model\Customer; use Magento\Customer\Setup\CustomerSetup; use Magento\Customer\Setup\CustomerSetupFactory; use Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Set; use Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\SetFactory; use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface; use Magento\Framework\Setup\Patch\DataPatchInterface; use Magento\Framework\Setup\Patch\PatchRevertableInterface; class AddCustomerCustomAttribute implements DataPatchInterface, PatchRevertableInterface { /** * @var ModuleDataSetupInterface */ private $moduleDataSetup; /** * @var CustomerSetup */ private $customerSetupFactory; /** * @var SetFactory */ private $attributeSetFactory; /** * Constructor * * @param ModuleDataSetupInterface $moduleDataSetup * @param CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory * @param SetFactory $attributeSetFactory */ public function __construct( ModuleDataSetupInterface $moduleDataSetup, CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory, SetFactory $attributeSetFactory ) { $this->moduleDataSetup = $moduleDataSetup; $this->customerSetupFactory = $customerSetupFactory; $this->attributeSetFactory = $attributeSetFactory; } /** * {@inheritdoc} */ public function apply() { $this->moduleDataSetup->getConnection()->startSetup(); /** @var CustomerSetup $customerSetup */ $customerSetup = $this->customerSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $this->moduleDataSetup]); $customerEntity = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getEntityType(Customer::ENTITY); $attributeSetId = $customerEntity->getDefaultAttributeSetId(); /** @var $attributeSet Set */ $attributeSet = $this->attributeSetFactory->create(); $attributeGroupId = $attributeSet->getDefaultGroupId($attributeSetId); $customerSetup->addAttribute( Customer::ENTITY, 'custom_new_attribute', [ 'label' => 'Custom New Attribute', 'input' => 'text', 'type' => 'varchar', 'source' => '', 'required' => false, 'position' => 40, 'visible' => true, 'system' => false, 'is_used_in_grid' => true, 'is_visible_in_grid' => true, 'is_filterable_in_grid' => true, 'is_searchable_in_grid' => false, 'backend' => '' ] ); $attribute = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, 'custom_new_attribute'); $attribute->addData([ 'used_in_forms' => [ 'adminhtml_customer', 'customer_account_create', 'customer_account_edit' ] ]); $attribute->addData([ 'attribute_set_id' => $attributeSetId, 'attribute_group_id' => $attributeGroupId ]); $attribute->save(); $this->moduleDataSetup->getConnection()->endSetup(); } public function revert() { $this->moduleDataSetup->getConnection()->startSetup(); /** @var CustomerSetup $customerSetup */ $customerSetup = $this->customerSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $this->moduleDataSetup]); $customerSetup->removeAttribute(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY, 'custom_new_attribute'); $this->moduleDataSetup->getConnection()->endSetup(); } /** * {@inheritdoc} */ public function getAliases() { return []; } /** * {@inheritdoc} */ public static function getDependencies() { return []; } }

In the above code, we have created a text type attribute. Replace, custom_new_attribute with your attribute code and change the label and another attribute settings as per your need.

Step 2: Open Command line in folder root of magento and run commands for create new customer attribute programmatically.

php bin/magento setup:upgrade php bin/magento cache:flush php bin/magento indexer:reindex

Bingo!! we are done, now go to the Admin > Customer > Edit Customer > Account Information > And find your attribute in our case it's Custom New Attribute. Newly created attribute will display like the below screenshot.
