I have an instance of \Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Item $item

I need to get the order ID of the order in which that particular item has been purchased.

For full disclosure, I am using a plugin function called afterConvert, which operates around the function "convert" in


Anyway, the table for quote_item doesn't seem to have the order_id in it.

Any idea how I could go about it?

public function aroundConvert(
    \Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Item\ToOrderItem $subject,
    \Closure $proceed,
    \Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Item $item,
    $additional = []
) {
    $order = null;


    $options = $this->configurationHelper->getOptions($item);

    foreach ($options as $option){
        if($option['label'] == 'Clarity'){
            $clarity = $option['value'];
        if($option['label'] == 'Color'){
            $color = $option['value'];
        if($option['label'] == 'Shape'){
            $shape = $option['value'];
        if($option['label'] == 'Carat'){
            $carat = $option['value'];
    /** @var \Magento\ConfigurableProduct\Api\Data\ConfigurableItemOptionValueInterface $option */

    $qrcode = $this->qrcodeFactory->create();
    $orderID = $item->getOrderId();

But $item->getOrderId doesn't work.

The quote is an order that it has not been passed yet, so since it has not been passed yet, you can't get his order ID.

If you want to get the order id of some product from the quote, it's not like this, you have instead to get all orders, then in this all orders you get them products, afterthat you compare if the orders contain one of your current quote product_id, so you get his order_id or order_id's.

  • Yep, that's it. Problem was "orderId" didn't exist yet!

I got this.

The trick is to use this event:


This way you are sure that:

A) The order actually went through

B) The orderId exists, because the event fires after

$order = $this->orderManagement->place($order);

in the function

protected function submitQuote(QuoteEntity $quote, $orderData = [])

that you can find here


So I used an Observer instead of a Plugin!
