I am creating order from admin end.

My requirement is to restrict few products to place order only from admin.

I need to show some message when those particular product selected and added to Order, I tried for event "checkout_cart_product_add_after" but that is not firing here.

I need to restrict it based on attribute value or sku.

Can anyone suggest me how this can be achieved? Thanks!!

You can also apply inline error showing as Magento has a bug that using the above solution, it will not remove the exception message, when you add correct product to cart.

In that case, you have to allow that product to be added to cart, with showing an inline error message.

Apply following solution in that case.


<?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="Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Item\AbstractItem">
        <plugin name="restrict_specific_product_addtocart_inline_error" type="Yash\SampleModule\Plugin\Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Item\AbstractItem" sortOrder="499" />



namespace Yash\SampleModule\Plugin\Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Item;

class AbstractItem
    public function afterCheckData($subject, $result)
        if (in_array($subject->getProduct()->getId(), ['1'])) {
            $subject->setMessage('Your error message');
            $subject->getQuote()->setHasError(true)->addMessage('Your error message');

        return $result;

You can create an event observer to achieve this.


<?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="adminhtml_sales_order_create_process_data_before">
        <observer name="restrict_product_addtocart_adminorder" instance="Yash\SampleModule\Observer\RestrictProductAddtocartAdminOrder" />



namespace Yash\SampleModule\Observer;

class RestrictProductAddtocartAdminOrder implements \Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\Message\ManagerInterface $messageManager
    ) {
        $this->messageManager = $messageManager;

    public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
        $items = $observer->getRequestModel()->getPost('item');

        if ($items) {
            $productIds = array_keys($items);

            if (in_array(1, $productIds)) {
                throw new \Exception('You can\'t add product with id 1');
  • hi @Yash, $items will have the product object here?
