Right now I am trying to override the default class of Magento 2 due to some my custom requirement but couldn't succeed, don't know why what I have done wrong here. May be someone can help me to the right direction.

For this I have written this code in my system,

<preference for="Magento\CatalogSearch\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\Collection" type="COMPANY_NAME\MODULE_NAME\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\CatalogSearch\Collection"/> 

and I want to override this class,



di.xml [app\code\COMPANY_NAME\MODULE_NAME\etc\di.xml]

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">    
    <preference for="Magento\CatalogSearch\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\Collection" type="COMPANY_NAME\MODULE_NAME\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\CatalogSearch\Collection"/>   


  • Have you tried to give permission for new added file "Collection.php" ?

Finally I found the solution by my self, Actually It create an Issue because module CatalogSearchuse this class as virtualType in


<virtualType name="Magento\CatalogSearch\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\SearchCollection" type="Magento\CatalogSearch\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\Collection">
        <argument name="searchRequestName" xsi:type="string">quick_search_container</argument>

So we need to write virtualType class Instead of direct Magento search collection, like

<preference for="Magento\CatalogSearch\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\SearchCollection" type="YOUR_COMPANY_NAME\YOUR_MODULE_NAME\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\Collection" />
  • Hi @KeyurShah I had face same issue and M233 EE and same solution added but not working? Do you know why? Jan 29, 2020 at 12:32
  • To be honest, I did not test with M233 EE, but it should work. after changing the di.xml did you remove generation directory? and run the di:compile command? @RohanHapani

  • Yes. Already did. But, still no any result. Jan 29, 2020 at 12:56
  • This class file called instead of custom : Magento\CatalogStaging\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\Collection\Interceptor Jan 29, 2020 at 13:08
  • Need to check this, but are you sure that this class also has VirtualType?

I test this code it is working for me file location etc/di.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
<preference for="Magento\CatalogSearch\Model\ResourceModel\Fulltext\Collection" type="Spacename\Moduelname\Model\Rewrite\ResourceModel\Fulltext\Collection" />
