Set custom default qty when creating new product Magento 2.3

I need Quantity field to be filled with custom value when creating new product in admin. I have already tried modificators (haven’t figured out how to set data for new product with modifyData($data) and
this answer seems to be not working anymore.. Is there some way to do so?

Making an observer on event catalog_product_new_action and $observer->getEvent()->getProduct()->setQty(%number%) doesnt work either.

You can create your own modifier pool in your custom extension to achieve this. Following files would do the work.


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <virtualType name="MagentoCatalogUiDataProviderProductFormModifierPool">
            <argument name="modifiers" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="defaultQtyModifier" xsi:type="array">
                    <item name="class" xsi:type="string">VendorModuleUiDataProviderProductFormModifierDefaultQtyModifier</item>
                    <item name="sortOrder" xsi:type="number">200</item>



namespace VendorModuleUiDataProviderProductFormModifier;

use MagentoCatalogUiDataProviderProductFormModifierAbstractModifier;
use MagentoCatalogModelLocatorLocatorInterface;

class DefaultQtyModifier extends AbstractModifier
    public function __construct(
        LocatorInterface $locator
    ) {
        $this->locator = $locator;

    public function modifyData(array $data)
        $model = $this->locator->getProduct();
        $modelId = $model->getId();

        if (!isset($data[$modelId][self::DATA_SOURCE_DEFAULT]['quantity_and_stock_status']['qty'])) {
            $data[$modelId][self::DATA_SOURCE_DEFAULT]['quantity_and_stock_status']['qty'] = 12;

        return $data;

    public function modifyMeta(array $meta)
        return $meta;

Here, instead of 12, you can defined your custom qty number.

Replace Vendor and Module with your original Vendor and Module name.

Hope this helps.
