Is it possible to filter products by category in Magento 2 under Catalog?

So when I go in the admin to catalog, can I filter the product list according to the category / categories the products are assigned to?

  • By "under catalog", do you mean you need category filter in admin product grid? – Piyush Aug 25 '17 at 5:06
  • Yes, exactly so I can choose only products under specific category. – Kaki Sami Aug 25 '17 at 5:07
  • For this you have to add category column in the product grid programmatically. – Piyush Aug 25 '17 at 5:08
  • How would I do that? Custom theme for admin? – Kaki Sami Aug 25 '17 at 5:09
  • theme won't do that , you have to write your own code – Piyush Aug 25 '17 at 5:11

You can simply call block and get product collection using below code :

Block File :

namespace Company\Categories\Block;

class Categoryproduct extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
     protected $categoryFactory;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context,        
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\CategoryFactory $categoryFactory
    ) {
        $this->categoryFactory = $categoryFactory;

    public function getCategoryProduct($categoryId)
        $category = $this->categoryFactory->create()->load($categoryId)->getProductCollection()->addAttributeToSelect('*');
        return $category;

phtml File :

$cat_Id = 10;
$getProudctcollection = $block->getCategoryProduct($cat_Id);

<ul class="category-products">  
                                foreach ($getProudctcollection as $product) : ?>
                                    <li class="level0-child">
                                        <a href="<?php echo $product->getProductUrl(); ?>">
                                            <?php echo $product->getName();?>
                        <?php   endforeach;?>
