Magento: How to get attribute name and value?

Attribute in Magento is like a property. All Products, Categories, Orders, Customers, etc. have attributes. For example, the attribute of a product is its name, sku, description, image, etc.

This article will show you how to get attribute name and value for any product.

Get attribute’s name, value, type, and other parameters

The attribute code in the case below is my_attribute.

Get value from a select box attribute

The attribute code is supposed to be ‘my_attribute

Load any particular attribute by attribute code

Get all option value list for the particular attribute

You can see above that I got attribute information by attribute code. My attribute information is stored as $attributeInfo. See code above.

Here is the code to get all option values for my attribute $attributeInfo.

Get all options of any attribute

Getting all options of attribute with attribute-code “color“.

Get attribute’s option information by option id

I have my attribute as $attributeInfo.
I have my attribute’s option value array as $attributeOptions.
See code above.

Suppose, I want to get detail information of any option listed in strong>$attributeOptions array. Here is the code to do so:-

Get attribute of particular entity type

Here, I am going to get information about ‘order_id‘ attribute of ‘invoice‘ entity type.

Get attribute options of Configurable product

Hope this helps. Thanks.

    I have a multilanguage Magento website.

    I’m using “$attribute->getFrontendLabel();”
    to retrieve the label of a attribute,
    but it returns always the default label set in the field “Admin”.

    Is it possible to retrieve the label of the current selected language of the site instead of the default one?

  • http://blog.chapagain.com.np Mukesh

    Yeah.. there seem to be some problem in Magento attribute for multilanguage website.

    Try this: echo $this->__($attribute->getFrontendLabel());

    If it doesn’t work then here is another solution.

    $attributeLabel = $attribute->getFrontendLabel();
    $translationArray = Mage::app()->getTranslator()->getResource()->getTranslationArray();
    echo $translationArray["Mage_Catalog::".$attributeLabel];

    This helps me to get attribute value.
    Also want to add one more thing here,

    If your attribute has select box, for example I have attribute “Metal” :


    By applying the following code :
    $attributeValue = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')

    this will output the “6” as a selected value id for the attribute.

    $attributeValue = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')

    This will output “Gold”, the exact selected value.

    Thanks again for this Attribute code explanation!

    Is there any way to get attributes name and value by attributes code not belong to any products. My mean get attributes not product attributes.

  • http://blog.chapagain.com.np Mukesh


    Here is the code to get attribute detail and attribute values by attribute code:-

    $attributeName = YOUR_ATTRIBUTE_CODE;
    $product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product');

    $collection = Mage::getResourceModel('eav/entity_attribute_collection')
    ->addFieldToFilter('attribute_code', $attributeName);

    $attribute = $collection->getFirstItem()->setEntity($product->getResource());

    // print_r($attribute->getData());

    $attributeOptions = $attribute->getSource()->getAllOptions(false);

    // print_r($attributeOptions);

    Hope this helps.

    how to get configurable products attributes values and options. pls help it is urgent

  • codep

    very elegant examples…

    I’ve put code to get attribute value into product’s issalabe method (mage – catalog – model – product.php) and sometimes it returns attribute value but sometimes it doesn’t – i.e. when product->isSaleable() is called from list.phtml attribute value does not exist, but when is called from simple.phtml it returns attribute value normaly. Do you have any idea why is that?

    any help to set attributes when creating a product. I am able to pull up the attribute set and reference the option values in the array but I cant seem to set a attribute value when creating a product. This code creates a product but its color and size options are not set.

    $product = Mage::getModel(‘catalog/product’);
    $product->setTaxClassId(0); //none
    $product->setWebsiteIds(array(1)); // store id
    $product->setAttributeSetId(705); //Product Attribute Set
    $product->setName(ereg_replace(“\n”,””,”PRODUCT NAME”));
    $product->setDescription(“product description”);
    $product->setInDepth(“product description product description”);
    $product->setShortDescription(ereg_replace(“\n”,””,”product desc”));
    $product->setStatus(1); //enabled
    $product->setVisibility(1); //nowhere
    $product->setMetaDescription(ereg_replace(“\n”,””,”product description meta desc”));
    $product->setMetaTitle(ereg_replace(“\n”,””,”product description meta title”));
    $product->setMetaKeywords(“product description meta keywords”);

    $productId = $product->getId();
    echo $product->getId() . “, $price, $itemNum added\n”;
    catch (Exception $e){
    echo “$price, $itemNum not added\n”;
    echo “exception:$e”;

    Thanks a lot, this saved me a lot of time. But I have one question.
    Is it possible to disable one value of one attribute in code? So, if I have 3 possible values for the attribute for one product, the user can only choose between the other two values, this based on certain logic Thanks :)
