Try this solution,

->addFieldToFilter('value', array('null' => true) );
  • this returns (value IS NULL) i needed ((value = '' )is NULL) Feb 10, 2020 at 12:34

Try this solution,

$collection = $objectManager->create('Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Collection');

        ['attribute' => 'value', 'null' => true], // Check if 'value' is NULL
        ['attribute' => 'value', 'eq' => '']     // Check if 'value' is empty

In the above example, we create a product collection and then use addFieldToFilter with an array of filter conditions.

The first condition checks if 'value' is NULL ('null' => true), and the second condition checks if 'value' is empty ('eq' => '').

These conditions are combined using the OR operator, so the collection will return products where either condition is met.
