Create Custom Yes/No Category Attributes in Magento 2

Here, In this post, you will understand how we can add Magento 2 custom category attributes programmatically (InstallSchema.php).

When we develop an online store in Magento 2 then sometimes we need this kind of functionality to add Category Attributes Programmatically.

We have developed a Magento 2 extension so that you can work on a custom Magento 2 module for custom yes/no attributes.

Just download that module or copy each and every file in your app/code and change your attribute title "Title Name" as per your requirements.

We have created two files which are InstallScheme.php and the second file is category_form.xml.

You can do copying and pasting the following snippets in your module. And the snippets that you can achieve immediately.

Add Category Attribute Programmatically in Magento 2

In this article, we will use the Wishusuces Yes No Custom Category Attributes module to learn how to add a category attribute.

Custom Category Attributes


Basic File for Yes/No Attribute in Magento 2

We have to create a minimum of four files to get the yes/no attribute in the category section in Magento 2.






Now we will check what content we need to add to all those files




Now we have to create a module.xml file.


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
<module name="Wishusucess_YesnoCustomCategoryAttributes" setup_version="1.0.0">


InstallSchema.php for Yes/No Custom Category Attributes


namespace Wishusucess\YesnoCustomCategoryAttributes\Setup;

use Magento\Framework\Setup\{

use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetup;
use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetupFactory;

class InstallData implements InstallDataInterface
private $eavSetupFactory;

public function __construct(EavSetupFactory $eavSetupFactory) {
$this->eavSetupFactory = $eavSetupFactory;

public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
$eavSetup = $this->eavSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);
$eavSetup->addAttribute(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::ENTITY, 'custom_category_attributes', [
'type' => 'int',
'label' => 'Custom Category Attributes',
'input' => 'boolean',
'source' => 'Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Source\Boolean',
'visible' => true,
'default' => '0',
'required' => false,
'global' => \Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_STORE,
'group' => 'Display Settings',


How To Display The Custom Category Attributes

Magento 2 category_form.xml provides the options to add custom attributes in the category section. So here view/adminhtml/UI Component is rendered with configuration from the category_form.xml file.

All files with that name are merged together. As a result, We will add a field by creating a category_form.xml file in the

So here we have added these custom attributes in the category display setting.

These custom_category_attributes should match the ID of the attribute with InstallSchema.php.


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<form xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Ui:etc/ui_configuration.xsd">
<fieldset name="display_settings">
<field name="custom_category_attributes">
<argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
<item name="config" xsi:type="array">
<item name="dataType" xsi:type="string">boolean</item>
<item name="formElement" xsi:type="string">checkbox</item>
<item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Custom Category Attributes</item>
<item name="prefer" xsi:type="string">toggle</item>
<item name="valueMap" xsi:type="array">
<item name="true" xsi:type="string">1</item>
