Trouble testing plugin with object manager

Issue: When attempting to test a plugin "after" method with $objectManager->create('Shopgate\Base\Model\Config')->startup(), the original startup() method is called but not my plugins afterStartup()

Steps Taken:

  • [✔] Confirm module enabled & loaded
  • [✔] Clear cache with magento cache:clean config
  • [✔] Empty generated code with rm -r generated/*
  • [✔] Register plugin as shown below:

In my etc/di.xml, I have the following:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Shopgate\Base\Model\Config">
        <plugin name="bugFixEnableGetSettings" type="MoninGlobal\ShopgateBugfix\Plugin\ShopgateConfig" sortOrder="9999" />

In MoninGlobal\ShopgateBugfix\Plugin\ShopgateConfig I have:

    public function afterStartup($subject, $result){

        return $result;

The same occurs when using get() instead of create() on the object manager.

Any insight into what I am missing here would be greatly appreciated.


Despite Magento showing that the module had been loaded and enabled, my registration.php was incorrect:


use \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar;

    'MoninGlobal_Template', # <--- BAD REFERENCE


use \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar;
