I have created a plugin that allows customers to buy downloadable products as a customer and creates a user for them. It assigns the order to the customer, they receive an invoice. On the admin side I can see the order assigned to them ( it has a status of complete ) and on their account, they can see the order. When they check their account under my products it is not there. This is in Magento 2. How do I assign the product to the customer so they can download it?

  • So I am creating the order, then creating the customer and assigning the order to the customer. I believe assigning the order after creation is causing the issue. Nov 19 '17 at 22:36
  • I have found that the downloadable link is not having it's customer Id set any help with this would be appreciated Nov 19 '17 at 23:05

Upon creation of the order, the links are given the customer id of the order. Since, I created the order with no customer id and then assigned only the order a customer id, the link was always missing the customer id.

 * @var $this->downloadLink = \Magento\Downloadable\Model\Link\PurchasedFactory;
 $items = $order->getAllItems();
foreach($items as $item){
    //look for downloadable products
    if($item->getProductType() === 'downloadable'){
        // create link from repository
        $link = $this->downloadLink->create()->load($item->getId(), 'order_item_id');
