  • Find Out The SQL Query That Was Used To Retrieve A Collection

    Posted on August 4, 2011 by admin

    To find out the SQL query Magento uses to retrieve a specific collection, just do the following:

    Let's say you would like to know what query is used to get a product collection - go to your debugging area (or maybe some phtml file), and paste following code:


    $_productCollection = Mage::getResourceModel("catalog/product_collection");


    Passing "true" as a parameter to the load function, will print out the query that Magento uses to retrieve the items for the collection.

Magento is a well-engineered eCommerce platform designed to help engineers develop customized eCommerce online stores. Due to lack of proper coding documentation, Engineer-ing.com was created with the sole purpose of instructing Magento developers to-be with the "how-to-do" know-how. In the event of unresolved issues, you are more than welcome to contact me for consultation.
