We have two modules which fire the same event checkout_submit_all_after.But i need to give a preference for this , i tried giving sequence in module b but it won't work.For ex Module A and Module B triggers the same event, but module B triggers first, my requirement is to trigger Module A and after Module B , is there any way i can do this. And what are the events triggers when order is placed through cron jobs, I have used checkout_submit_all_after, does this event fires if the order is placed through crons?.

Please give me any solution for to go forward. Thank You

At first, question, you want to trigger Module A module observer then fire observer of Module B.

Then below is my solution is of this case.

Disable Module B using xml code.

Then Create around plugin the method ModuleA_ObserverClass::execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer) of Observer of module A.

And on that around Plugin PluginClass::aroundExecute() execute original ModuleA_ObserverClass::execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer) and using $proceed(\ModuleA_ObserverClass $subject,\Callable ,$observer) And after running of origina method , add new method to PluginClass.

And on this new method, copy all code of ModuleB: execute and run after $proceed($observer).

Step1: Disable Observer of Module B

<event name="checkout_submit_all_after">
    <observer name="{ModuleB_Observer_Classs}" instance="{observerClassNameOfModuleB}" />

Assume above one is observer declaration of ModuleB. First, we have to disable this observer.

Let's create An events.xml at your custom module and disable this by XML node disabled.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="checkout_submit_all_after">
    <!-- Note that observer name should be same  of Module B observer -->
        <observer name="{ModuleB_Observer_Classs}" disabled="true" />

Step2: Create around plugin on ModuleA_ObserverClass::execute()

Create di.xml and declare the around plugin for ModuleA_ObserverClass::execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer).

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd"> 
    <type name="ModuleA_ObserverClass">
        <plugin name="ModuleA_ObserverClass_My_plugin" sortOrder="10" type="{PluginClass}"/>

And Plugin code:


namespace {Namespace};

class {PluginClass} {

    public function aroundExecute(
      \ModuleA_Observer_Classs $subject,
       callable $proceed,
       \Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer    
        //This code run original Merthod

    public function replicatedMethodExecuteofObseverOfModuleB($observer)
        // Copy all code of `ModuleA_ObserverClass::execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)`
        // and paste here
