I added two fields to my vocabulary terms field management. How do I get these values? There is no fields like color or Image in my Taxonomy Term vocabulary dump.

How does Drupal 8 store these additional fields?

$terms = $this->taxonomyStorage->loadTree($vocabularyName);



enter image description here


Its similar to any other entity on Drupal 8

$name = $terms[0]->name;

//simple text field
$color = $terms[0]->field_color->value;

//multivalue field - get array of values
$color = $terms[0]->get('field_color')->getValue();

//entity reference field
$entity = $terms[0]->field_color->entity;

//image field 
$image = $terms[0]->get('field_image')->entity;
$image_uri = $image->getFileUri();

//get color entity id
$entity_id = $entity->id();

I think at least your color field is actually an entity reference

  • the code above was tested and was working for a single TERM in api.drupal.org/api/drupal/… ... I think you better post some sample code otherwise we can't really tell why your code is not working – GiorgosK Mar 30 '18 at 16:13
  • The solution for me was: Drupal::entityTypeManager()->getStorage('taxonomy_term')->load($term->tid)->get('field_color')->color – Zbigniew Malcherczyk Mar 30 '18 at 16:13
