I want to override protected method _prepareProduct present in vendor/magento/module-sitemap/Model/ResourceModel/Catalog/Product.php in my custom module.

I have overridden the Model file by adding preference in di.xml but it's not working.

Still, the default model is working. I have done di:compile and setup upgrade too. There is no error showing.

Please provide a solution to override this.

  • @AmitBera Because the issue was there is a third party module present which has already overridden the same file. That's why it was not overriding mine. Now, I have overridden the third-party module file.

Your di.xml code will be look like:

<?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="Magento\Sitemap\Model\ResourceModel\Catalog\Product" type="{Vendorname}\{Modulename}\Rewrite\Magento\Sitemap\Model\ResourceModel\Catalog\Product"/>

And Rewrite class code:

namespace {Vendorname}\{Modulename}\Rewrite\Magento\Sitemap\Model\ResourceModel\Catalog;

class Product extends \Magento\Sitemap\Model\ResourceModel\Catalog\Product
    protected function _prepareProduct(array $productRow, $storeId)
    // Do changes at here
        $product = new \Magento\Framework\DataObject();

        $product['id'] = $productRow[$this->getIdFieldName()];
        if (empty($productRow['url'])) {
            $productRow['url'] = 'catalog/product/view/id/' . $product->getId();
        $this->_loadProductImages($product, $storeId);

        return $product;

  • use Magento\Catalog\Helper\Product as HelperProduct; use Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Image\UrlBuilder; use Magento\CatalogUrlRewrite\Model\ProductUrlRewriteGenerator; use Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager; use Magento\Store\Model\ScopeInterface; use Magento\Store\Model\Store; use Magento\Framework\Model\ResourceModel\Db\AbstractDb; class Product extends \Magento\Sitemap\Model\ResourceModel\Catalog\Product { } Commented Jun 20, 2023 at 17:49
