I have added one custom attribute to order. but i am not able to save it from my custom file programatically.

use \Magento\Sales\Model\Order;
$_objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$order = $_objectManager->create('Magento\Sales\Model\Order')->loadByIncrementId(000000004);
$dat = $order->getData();

I am able to print array of order by $dat, but when i am going to save it's gives internal server error.

  • It is your new attribute ? and did you flush the cache ?

First flush the cache from var/cache and using php bin/magento cache:flush Remove use \Magento\Sales\Model\Order;

then try this code:

$_objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$order = $_objectManager ->create('Magento\Sales\Model\Order');

Try $order->setIsSendReview(1);

instead of $order->setData('is_send_review',1);

Hope it works :)

  • I have also tried it but not working. BTW i am doing this from 1 custom file in magento root.

Magento is considering the EAV model for the sales entities deprecated quite for a long time since now (starting with some old versions of Magento 1 as well) but they don't force you not to use it. Thereby, in the eav_entity_type table you have a code for order as well.

For the sales entities, Magento default is using the flat tables. There are no EAV attributes for orders/invoices/cm/shipments.

The sales tables are flat tables so you may add your custom field as a separate column in sales_order via an InstallSchema/UpgradeSchema script.

Hope it helps,
