Add new customer attribute in MAGENTO2

Add new customer attribute in MAGENTO2

Hi,

 

I am facing problem while adding custom attribute to registration form.

 

Below is the code:

 

app/code/Sashas/CustomerAttribute/etc/module.xml

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/Module/etc/module.xsd">
<module name="Sashas_CustomerAttribute" setup_version="1.0.0">
<sequence>
<module name="Magento_Customer"/>
</sequence>
</module>
</config>

 

 

 

app/code/Sashas/CustomerAttribute/Setup/InstallData.php

 

<?php


namespace Sashas\CustomerAttribute\Setup;
use Magento\Customer\Setup\CustomerSetupFactory;
use Magento\Customer\Model\Customer;
use Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Set as AttributeSet;
use Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\SetFactory as AttributeSetFactory;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\InstallDataInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface;

/**
* @codeCoverageIgnore
*/
class InstallData implements InstallDataInterface
{

/**
* @var CustomerSetupFactory
*/
protected $customerSetupFactory;

/**
* @var AttributeSetFactory
*/
private $attributeSetFactory;

/**
* @param CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory
* @param AttributeSetFactory $attributeSetFactory
*/
public function __construct(
CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory,
AttributeSetFactory $attributeSetFactory
) {
$this->customerSetupFactory = $customerSetupFactory;
$this->attributeSetFactory = $attributeSetFactory;
}


/**
* {@inheritdoc}
*/
public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
{

/** @var CustomerSetup $customerSetup */
$customerSetup = $this->customerSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);

$customerEntity = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getEntityType('customer');
$attributeSetId = $customerEntity->getDefaultAttributeSetId();

/** @var $attributeSet AttributeSet */
$attributeSet = $this->attributeSetFactory->create();
$attributeGroupId = $attributeSet->getDefaultGroupId($attributeSetId);

$customerSetup->addAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, 'magento_username', [
'type' => 'varchar',
'label' => 'Magento Username',
'input' => 'text',
'required' => false,
'visible' => true,
'user_defined' => true,
'sort_order' => 1000,
'position' => 1000,
'system' => 0,
]);

$attribute = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, 'magento_username')
->addData([
'attribute_set_id' => $attributeSetId,
'attribute_group_id' => $attributeGroupId,
'used_in_forms' => ['adminhtml_customer'],
]);

$attribute->save();


}
}

 

In my local machine i have placed all folders then launched magento upgrade and clean cache. 

php bin/magento  setup:upgrade

 php bin/magento  cache:flush –all

 

But still i dont get any filed shown in the additional information in admin area.

 I checked in the "Customer_entity_varchar" table after the upgrade, but i dont see any column created in it.

Please let me know if anything i am missing.

 

Thanks in advance
