A list of core Magento 2 modules that can be disabled - 4.0 out of 5 based on 2 votes

With version 2.4.x, Magento includes about 200 internal PHP packages plus more than a hundred external PHP packages. These numbers have grown a lot in the last few releases, especially with several packages for the GraphQL integration and for the Multi Source Inventory.
Magento 2 has a lot of built-in modules that provide different functionality, but you don’t need to use all of them 100% of the time. This means that you can safely disable elements of the platform’s modules to give performance. You’ll achieve better performance, and your admin users won’t have to deal with superfluous functionality that isn’t being fully utilised.
Maybe it would be useful to prepare a list of core Magento 2 modules that can be disabled with no harm for your store, because they are hardly used.


Benefits of removing core modules

  • Less code means less maintenance work
  • Removed code is debugged code
  • Fewer security risks
  • Magento becomes faster with certain modules disabled
  • How to display Magento 2 module list?

    If there is a need to find a complete list of modules installed on your Magento 2, follow the steps:
  • Log in to your Magento 2 installation root folder: use SSH via Terminal or Putty.cd;
  • Use the Magento 2 enabled modules command: php bin/magento module:status to see a list of Magento 2 all enabled / disabled modules:

    List of not-used core modules that can be disabled with no harm

    It’s up to you which modules to remove. Here, we present a suggestion, list of what I think the modules do, it might help knowing what you can try to disable. Important note: Before disabling any of these modules, it’s worth double-checking whether you need them or not. Some of them could contain hidden dependencies or functionalities that you find you rely on. For example, the “Magento_AdminNotification” module is sometimes used by third-party modules, to show notifications..
  • AdminNotification: can be disabled. But it's useful to get the last security information.

    How to Enable/ disable or uninstall modules in Magento 2

    Now, there might be some conflicting modules that cannot be enabled at the same time. So, we need to first find the dependencies of a module in the composer.json file. Open the composer.json file of the module that you want to enable or disable and check its conflict field. If there is no conflict, then you can go ahead and enable, disable, or uninstall a module.
  • To enable a module use the command:
    php bin/magento module:enable Extension_Name
  • To disable a Magento 2 module from the command line, use the command:
    php bin/magento module:disable Extension_Name
  • To uninstall and remove a Magento 2 module use the next command:
    php bin/magento module:uninstall Extension_Name
  • Having enabled or disabled one or several modules, use the next command to update the database: magento setup:upgrade and php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f
