Hi,

Here's my problem:
let's say we want to add a custom string field "Deposit" in admin>customer>edit page, that would not allow activating customer when "Deposit" input field is empty.
What would be the cleanest approach to have this new field added to customer entity, and getting it saved to database? (Using only new plugin)
I assume I would have to override customer service, but get stuck with restricting myself from changing controller.
Also, what about extending customerViewModel?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Povilas,

The easiest and cleanest way will be using the GenericAttributes. You should figure out how to do it if you check the rest of the fields on the customer.

Thanks Patryk!

And if there's a need to add these attributes programmatically, and have them as "migrations" without adding them manually over admin UI,
how can we resolve that?

I suppose that you can do it with the plugin, however, I'm not a developer ;)
