How to filter product collection with default graphql products query in Magento 2? – This topic is very important when it comes to the layered navigation. Normally we need to filter our product collection with custom products attributes and default product attributes.
The native Graphql products query not included the color, size and custom attributes. So today we are going to see how we can get this done by the using of a custom module.

Custom Module’s Structure.

Custom Product Filter with GraphQl
Module Structure

module.xml file

We want to define, undefined(in Native GraphQl) products attribute in the di.xml(Ayakil\CatalogGraphQl\ figraphql\di.xml) file first. As well as our custom products attributes too. In This module i will handle color, size(default attribute), region, language(custom Attribute).

After this we want to define the custom attribute and native product attribute as FilterTypeInput to ProductFilterInput in the shchema.graphqls file like below.

After this we want to create ProductAttributeFilter.php file under the Model directory. As we defined in the di.xml file(path is Ayakil\CatalogGraphQl\Model\Resolver\Products\SearchCriteria\CollectionProcessor\FilterProcessor\). I followed default magento’s module-catlog-graph-ql module to achieve this task.

This will help you to filter the product collection with product attributes which are not defined in native products graphql. So we can use default products graphql query to get the result. Below is the grapql query which i am passing with the custom attributes to get the collection.

  1. I’m unable to run graphql after deploying my code which was most similar to your usecase.

    Can you share your module please.
