I looked for hours but I'm not able to pre-filter a default admin grid like the admin product grid. Does anyone know how to do this ?

Thanks !

If you define grid collection thought layout than you can use updater to add default filter.

<argument name="dataSource" xsi:type="object">


namespace Tutorial\SimpleNews\Model\Resource\News\Collection;

    class CollectionUpdater implements \Magento\Framework\View\Layout\Argument\UpdaterInterface

     * Update grid collection according to chosen order
     * @param \Tutorial\SimpleNews\Model\Resource\News\Collection $argument
     * @return \Tutorial\SimpleNews\Model\Resource\News\Collection
    public function update($argument)
        $argument->addFieldToFilter('you_field', 'value');

        return $argument;

or Extend Grid block

class Grid extends \Magento\Backend\Block\Widget\Grid
    protected function _prepareCollection()
        if ($this->getCollection()) {
            foreach ($this->getDefaultFilter() as $field => $value) {
                $this->getCollection()->addFieldToFilter($field, $value);
        return parent::_prepareCollection();

Hope this will help you.


  • Thanks for your quick reply ! I tried to apply it to the admin product grid but I'm not able to find where the collection is set. But I would like to preset the store filter and not necessarily custom the collection. Thanks !
