Custom User Attributes

You can add custom user attributes to the registration page and account management console with a custom theme. This chapter describes how to add attributes to a custom theme, but you should refer to the Themes chapter on how to create a custom theme.

Registration Page

To be able to enter custom attributes in the registration page copy the template themes/base/login/register.ftl to the login type of your custom theme. Then open the copy in an editor.

As an example to add a mobile number to the registration page add the following snippet to the form:

<div class="form-group">
   <div class="${properties.kcLabelWrapperClass!}">
       <label for="user.attributes.mobile" class="${properties.kcLabelClass!}">Mobile number</label>
   </div>

   <div class="col-sm-10 col-md-10">
       <input type="text" class="${properties.kcInputClass!}"  id="user.attributes.mobile" name="user.attributes.mobile"/>
   </div>
</div>

To see the changes make sure your realm is using your custom theme for the login theme and open the registration page.

Account Management Console

To be able to manage custom attributes in the user profile page in the account management console copy the template themes/base/account/account.ftl to the account type of your custom theme. Then open the copy in an editor.

As an example to add a mobile number to the account page add the following snippet to the form:

<div class="form-group">
   <div class="col-sm-2 col-md-2">
       <label for="user.attributes.mobile" class="control-label">Mobile number</label>
   </div>

   <div class="col-sm-10 col-md-10">
       <input type="text" class="form-control" id="user.attributes.mobile" name="user.attributes.mobile" value="${(account.attributes.mobile!'')?html}"/>
   </div>
</div>

To see the changes make sure your realm is using your custom theme for the account theme and open the user profile page in the account management console.
