I have been asked to quote for a client who wants to have a standard Magento 2 grid in the backend for an extension I have custom built for them.

The want to be able to perform full-text searches, which I know how to do, but they want to be able to search fields that are in the database but not the grid.

For example:

They have a grid of blog posts in the backend. Each blog can contain links to products. The products are linked using a database table called products_in_blog and contains columns blog_id and product_id.

They want to be able to search for products in the blog admin area and return blogs that contain these products in the blog grid.

I don't necessarily need to know exactly how to do it as I can figure it out when it comes to the build. I just need to know if it is possible to do in order to provide a quote.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

  • Maybe You show those assigned blogs in product edit tab section? – Martins Apr 7 '17 at 4:42
  • I can see why that would be easier but, unfortunately, the client is pretty adamant that this is how the functionality is to be – Wildcard27 Apr 7 '17 at 4:46
