I have created a custom column in Product gird by a module, which shows Parent product's SKU there. It's working fine but when I try to filter it Magento gives "Something went wrong with processing the default view and we have restored the filter to its original state." error. and in exception.log the error is:

[2019-01-03 11:33:08] main.CRITICAL: Invalid attribute name: parentid_col {"exception":"[object] (Magento\Framework\Exception\LocalizedException(code: 0): Invalid attribute name: parentid_col at /html/vendor/magento/module-eav/Model/Entity/Collection/AbstractCollection.php:1383)"} []

Here's my code

  • How did you add this attribute? – Anshu Mishra Jan 7 '19 at 5:18
  • @AnshuMishra i have created module to add this attribute in product listing grid – Tajveez Rehman Jan 7 '19 at 12:02
  • Please share the code that you have written to add the custom attribute. – Anshu Mishra Jan 7 '19 at 12:03
  • @AnshuMishraI I've already did that above in question's description – Tajveez Rehman Jan 7 '19 at 13:05

You need to add this below code in your ParentProductId.php file :

protected function _initSelect()
        ['custom_table_name' => $this->getTable('custom_table_name')],
        'main_table.entity_id = custom_table_name.customer_id',
    return $this;
  • Thanks, Rohan but I don't have a custom table for this custom attribute. what should I do in this scenario? – Tajveez Rehman Jan 7 '19 at 6:28
  • i have added this but its still giving the same error – Tajveez Rehman Jan 7 '19 at 12:20
