Is there a way when a product is duplicated so the 'Save After Event' is not fired or the product is not actually 'saved' until the product is 100% finished. As the product is actually getting 'created' even though it's not finished. I'm trying to prevent this.


  • I decided just put some logic into the duplication_event first that removed the fields in quest, therfor the 'Save After' event wouldn't process what I need as it happens before the 'Save After' during duplication of the product. Commented May 11, 2016 at 17:37

Although I am not a fan of rewriting major classes like Mage_Catalog_Model_Product, one way to skip the Save After event is to first do a <rewrite> of the Mage_Catalog_Model_Product class and then change $_eventPrefix property to anything other than catalog_product.

Something like this:

class My_Custom_Product_Class extends Mage_Catalog_Model_Product
   protected $_eventPrefix = 'custom_catalog_product';
  • Although this isn't the designed I used. The logic did work. Thanks. Commented May 13, 2016 at 0:17
