422 Error after customer registration with Extension Block

I'm facing with an error 422 Unprocessable Content after customer registration. I've added an extension block to the customer/register page, which extends the customer registration form. However, even when the additional fields are not filled in, I still encounter this 422 error. When I remove my block, it works as expected.
1. With added extension block:
POST https://your-store.myshopify.com/account
Status code: 422 Unprocessable Content
form_type: create_customer
utf8: ✓
customer[first_name]: Rosalyn
customer[last_name]: Williamson
customer[email]: joqizy@mf.com
customer[password]: !123

X-Request-Id: 10e86098-c62a-4146-b20f-c5e3bb52a607
2. Without added extension block:
POST https://your-store.myshopify.com/account
Status code: 302 Found
form_type: create_customer
utf8: ✓
customer[first_name]: Kirk
customer[last_name]: Hodges
customer[email]: lavohyryk@mf.com
customer[password]: !123

Hi Manfa,


An 422 Unprocessable Entity error can occur due to various reasons, such as invalid data or incorrectly formatted input. In your case, it seems the error is likely due to the additional fields that you added the customer registration form using the extension block.


Even though these fields are not mandatory and you're not filling them in, they might still be processed when the form is submitted. If these fields are not properly configured or are missing some required attributes, it could lead to a 422 error.


Here are a few things you can do to troubleshoot this issue:

  1. Confirm the additional fields are optional: Ensure that the additional fields you added are indeed optional. If they're set as required fields in the backend but left blank, it could cause a 422 error.

  2. Check the format of the fields: Verify that the additional fields are correctly configured. For example, if you have a date field, ensure it's formatted correctly and can handle blank inputs.

  3. Inspect server logs for more information: The server logs can provide more specific information about the error. Look for any error messages related to the additional fields.

  4. Remove fields one at a time: If you added multiple fields, try removing them one by one to identify the field causing the issue.

  5. Check your code: Make sure there are no syntax or logical errors in your code. Also, verify that your form is correctly structured and all fields are properly nested.

Try out the above and let us know if you've still experiencing issues - hope this helps,
