Given a collection obtained by (this is Magento 1.4):

$collection = Mage::getModel('catalog/product_option')

This returns the collection of options associated with a single product. I would like to filter this down to only give me options that have a price_type of percent, so naturally, I try:

$collection = Mage::getModel('catalog/product_option')
    ->addFieldToFilter('price_type', array('eq' => 'percent'));

This still returns the entire option collection, as if the filter did nothing at all. Is this an old issue with v.1.4?

  • Did you try changing price_type to default_option_price.price_type? – Renon Stewart Oct 9 '14 at 20:54
  • Indeed I have. For now, I have resorted to a couple foreach loops that gets the values from each option and just pushes those with ['price_type'] == 'percent' to a new array. This is an old site that will be gone soon and I'm not able to spend much time on it and I fear that some of the rewritten models (including options, products, values, etc) are what is giving me fits. – pspahn Oct 9 '14 at 21:20

Testing the query product by your code in version 1.7.* i got the following error in MySql Workbench "Error Code: 1052. Column 'price_type' in where clause is ambiguous"


 $_product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load(1);
 $collection = Mage::getModel('catalog/product_option')
               ->addFieldToFilter('default_option_price.price_type', array('eq' => 'percent'));

Try debugging using

echo $collection->getSelect();
