How to Programmatically Create Multi Select Product Attribute in Magento 2

I have shared the tutorial to create product attribute in Magento 2 earlier. However, developers may need to create multi-select product attributes in Magento 2 development tasks.

Developing multi select product attributes may be required a number of times. For example, you want to develop an extension to allow the selection of more than one customer groups, locations, or select multiple options to apply a rule on.

There is no limit when it comes to how you use this solution as per your business or client requirements.

The programmatic method to do so makes the task easier and quicker.

Method to Programmatically Create Multi Select Product Attribute in Magento 2:

  1. Create InstallData.php file at Vendor\Extension\Setup\ folder

  2. Create Extensionoption.php file at Vendor\Extension\Model\Config\Product folder
     

With the above code you can create multi select product attributes as shown below:

  • Yes this module works

  • hi ..this article helped me a lot. But i have a question: if i have to set many “dropdowns” for example: a select for “age” and another one for “sizes” , do i add them in the same InstallData.php or do i have to create different instances for each select. ?
    Can you help me with this issue?

    thanks 🙂

    • Hello,
      The code to create an attribute comes in the Installdata.php file. But for this option, you need to create a different file.
      Thank you.
