    Use the following steps to implement a custom PHP modifier for a UI component;

    Step 1:

    In your custom module create a class that implements \Magento\Ui\DataProvider\Modifier\ModifierInterface with the following methods:

    class Example implements ModifierInterface
        public function modifyMeta(array $meta)
            $meta['test_fieldset_name'] = [
                'arguments' => [
                    'data' => [
                        'config' => [
                            'label' => __('Test Label For Fieldset'),
                            'sortOrder' => 50,
                            'collapsible' => true
                'children' => [
                    'test_field_name' => [
                        'arguments' => [
                            'data' => [
                                'config' => [
                                    'formElement' => 'select',
                                    'componentType' => 'field',
                                    'options' => [
                                        ['value' => 'test_value', 'label' => 'Test Value'],
                                    'visible' => 1,
                                    'required' => 1,
                                    'label' => __('Label For Element')
            return $meta;
         * {@inheritdoc}
        public function modifyData(array $data)
            return $data;
    Step 2:

    Declare modifier in <Your_Module_dir>/etc/adminhtml/di.xml. This declaration looks like the following:

    <virtualType name="%Webkul\Test\DataProvider\Modifier\Pool%" type="Magento\Ui\DataProvider\Modifier\Pool">
             <argument name="modifiers" xsi:type="array">
                 <item name="modifier_name" xsi:type="array">
                     <item name="class" xsi:type="string">%Webkul\Test\Modifier\Example%</item>
                     <item name="sortOrder" xsi:type="number">10</item>

    Webkul\Test\DataProvider\Modifier\Pool is a virtual class.

    Step 3:

    To use your modifier, add a dependency on your UI component data provider.

    <type name="%Webkul\Test\Ui\DataProvider\Example%">
            <argument name="pool" xsi:type="object">%Webkul\Test\DataProvider\Modifier\Pool%</argument>
