    I want to add a “manufacturer” entity to the existing product entity. My idea is to allow the product form to have a drop-down list that contains all of the manufacturers contained within the new custom entity. The first problem that I had was that the schema would not update, but for those that have a similar issue, I carried out the following commands which solved the problem:

    php app/console oro:entity-extend:cache:clear
    php app/console oro:entity-extend:update-config
    php app/console oro:entity-extend:update-schema

    The entities then changed from needing update to being active. However when I create a new field in the Products table and select a many-to-one field type, the new custom entity that I have created is not listed.

    Can you point me in the right direction as to what I am doing wrong, or whether this type of customisation is not possible.

    My other question is how would I go about adding the custom entity to the admin area so that it can allow data entry?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Nick. I’m looking for the exact same solution. I was wondering if you made any progress on the issue?

    Best Regards



    Hi Mads,

    I haven’t made any progress unfortunately. I think it should be out-of-the-box functionality really, as being able to search by manufacturer is available on a lot of retail sites.

    If someone from OroCommerce can chip in with any advice I’d really appreciate it.




    Do you create a regular symfony2 entity, or extended entity? If it’s regular entity then it’s impossible to create many-to-one relation due to technical limitation (there is no way to create new field in regular entity). Create extended entity



    Hi Nick

    Thanks for your reply and sorry for my late reply. I agree with you, that it should be included in orocommerce, but I’m wondering if could be possible to do a workaround and treat the manufacturers as customers as the built in customer management seems pretty feature rich.
