I have a product model from order item model, which i call like this:

$product = $orderItem->getProduct();

The problem is one of the order item is a child product from configurable product, i need to retrieve the parent name from this product, is there a way to do this?


Try this code:

$productId = 1; //this is child product id
$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$product = $objectManager->create('Magento\ConfigurableProduct\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Type\Configurable')->getParentIdsByChild($productId);
  $product = $objectManager->create('Magento\Catalog\Model\Product')->load($product[0]);
    echo $product->getName();

Use this code:

protected $_catalogProductTypeConfigurable;

 public function __construct(
    \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Context $context,       
    //for getting parent id of simple
    \Magento\ConfigurableProduct\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Type\Configurable $catalogProductTypeConfigurable,
    array $data = []
) {
    //for getting parent id of simple
    $this->_catalogProductTypeConfigurable = $catalogProductTypeConfigurable;
    parent::__construct($context, $data);
public function getProductData($id){
    $productId = $orderItem->getProduct()->getId();
    $parentByChild = $this->_catalogProductTypeConfigurable->getParentIdsByChild($productId);
        //set id as parent product id...
        $id = $parentByChild[0];          
    return $id;     

Alternatively, you can use this too:

$productId = $orderItem->getProduct()->getId(); //this is child product id
$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$product = $objectManager->create('Magento\ConfigurableProduct\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Type\Configurable')->getParentIdsByChild($productId);
     //this is parent product id..
     echo $product[0];
  • then how can i get the product parent name? – simple guy Feb 20 '18 at 8:01
  • Use the above mentioned code after your code $product = $orderItem->getProduct(); As it will return product id, now you can load the product name by loading product factory. – Manish Joy Feb 20 '18 at 8:10

$orderItem->getName() should return the parents name for a configurable product.

  • not returning the parents name – simple guy Feb 20 '18 at 7:55
  • ok, please provide a bit more context then in your question. where do you get the orderItem from etc. – steros Feb 20 '18 at 7:57
  • from order collection in Magento_Customer/view/frontend/templates/account/order/history.phtml – simple guy Feb 20 '18 at 8:01
