Unable to edit customer field in liquid code

Hi there,

 

I'm trying to edit a customer field in theme.liquid without any success.

 

This is the code I've tried to clear the customer's company name when they are logged in.

{%- if customer -%}
<p>TEST the user is logged in TEST</p>
{% assign customer.company = nil %}
{%- endif -%}

 

I've also tried the below to just test:

{%- if customer -%}
<p>TEST the user is logged in TEST</p>
{% assign test_var = customer.company %}
{{ test_var}}
{%- endif -%}

 

I've also tried changing customer.first_name and others. It appears that I just can't access/edit the customer field at all in code. Any ideas why this could be?

 

Using Dawn 2.0 theme.

Liquid does not allow directly mutating the values of properties of resource objects.

 

Make your own variable and use that in customer templates set to nil, and or based on the initial customer.company  variable

 

i.e. {% assign test_var = nil %}
