I added a new attribute on order entity :

$salesSetup->addAttribute(Order::ENTITY, "shipping_date", [
    'type'     => "date",
    'label'    => "Shipping date",
    'input'    => "text",
    'user_defined' => true,
    'required' => false,
    'visible' => true

and display it on the sales order grid



<listing xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Ui:etc/ui_configuration.xsd">
<columns name="sales_order_columns">
    <column name="shipping_date">
        <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="filter" xsi:type="string">text</item>
                <item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Shipping Date</item>

And when I'm saving a new order I would like to populate the sales_order_grid so I added this code in


<virtualType name="Magento\Sales\Model\ResourceModel\Order\Grid">
        <argument name="columns" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="shipping_date" xsi:type="string">sales_order.shipping_date</item>

The issue is when I'm saving the order it creates a blank line in sales_order_grid table with only the shipping date filled, all other fields are NULL, where is my mistake ?

  • I followed this way, but all the value are updating to the sales_order_grid table except the custom column value. is there any other code is missing?

I think it's because you forget to add the type on your virtualType in di.xml
Update your virtualType like this :

<virtualType name="Magento\Sales\Model\ResourceModel\Order\Grid" type="Magento\Sales\Model\ResourceModel\Grid">
        <argument name="columns" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="shipping_date" xsi:type="string">sales_order.shipping_date</item>
  • how to insert custom value on sales_order_grid during this insertion? Commented Jan 14, 2022 at 14:54
