How to override this below file? Pepperjam\Network\Model\Beacon\Itemized.php

I need to override protected function inside this file, I tried with reference but not working

I have add override using plugin method but it is not working please advise if I am wrong:

In etc/di.xml add below code

<?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="Pepperjam\Network\Model\Beacon\Itemized">
    <plugin name="cmarix-pepperjam-itemized-model" type="[VendorName][ModuleName]\Plugin\ItemizedPlugin" sortOrder="1" />

And In [VendorName][ModuleName]\Plugin\ItemizedPlugin.php file add below code


namespace [VendorName][ModuleName]\Plugin;

class ItemizedPlugin
    protected function aftergetQuantity($item)
        $writer = new \Zend\Log\Writer\Stream(BP . '/var/log/afterlog.log');
        $logger = new \Zend\Log\Logger();
        $logger->info('Your text message');

        if ($item->getProduct()->canConfigure()) {
            return 0;
        } else {
            return (int) $item->getQtyOrdered();

  • You cannot override a protected/public function using Plugin or preference..Is this your custom module?

You can easily override the file as this following steps

Step 1: you need to create di.xml file in your own Module. Path: [VendorName]\[ModuleName]\etc\

Step 2: Write this following code in your di.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <preference for="Pepperjam\Network\Model\Beacon\Itemized" type="[VendorName]\[ModuleName]\Model\Beacon\Itemized"/>
  • I have already override using same way but it is not override I have created di.xml file in etc folder and added below code: <?xml version="1.0"?> <config xmlns:xsi="w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd"> <preference for="Pepperjam\Network\Model\Beacon\Itemized" type="[VendorName][ModuleName]\Model\Beacon\Itemized" /> </config> After that I have created model file in below location: [VendorName][ModuleName]\Model\Beacon\Itemized.php And added function that I want to override
