How to get customer order detail using GraphQl in Magento 2?

Jun 8th, 2020 7 min to read

Here, in this blog, I will be guiding you on how to create a custom GraphQl query and get order details for specific customer id in Magento 2.

GraphQL is a data query language developed internally by Facebook in 2012

GraphQL is a new concept from Magento 2.3 version in Magento. Using Graphql we can get sales order data. There are many default core modules using GraphQl for getting data like, Product, CMS Page, and Block, Customer module uses Graphql for getting data of a specific entity. Magento Doesn’t use GraphQl for Sales Specific entity in core module.

Here we will be using AureateLabs as the Vendor name and CustomerOrder as the name of the module. You can change this according to your Vendor and Module name.

Follow the below steps to create a module with a custom GraphQl query.

Step 1: Register module

Create registration.php file, path app/code/AureateLabs/CustomerOrder/registration.php


Next create module.xml file, path app/code/AureateLabs/CustomerOrder/etc/module.xml 

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
   <module name="AureateLabs_CustomerOrder">
           <module name="Magento_Sales"/>
           <module name="Magento_GraphQl"/>

Our Module depends on GraphQL and Sales Module so we have given the dependency on module.xml file for each module.

Step 2: Create schema.graphqls

Every GraphQl Module must contain a schema.graphqls file under the etc folder of a module.

schema.graphqls is the heart of any GraphQL Query implementation and describes what data can be queried. So You can define your query data basic skeleton under the schema.graphqls file.

Next create schema.graphqls file, path app/code/AureateLabs/CustomerOrder/etc/schema.graphqls 

type Query {
    customerPlacedOrder (
        customer_id: Int @doc(description: "Id of the Customer for fetch all the placed order")
    ): SalesOrderCollection @resolver(class: "AureateLabs\\CustomerOrder\\Model\\Resolver\\CustomerOrder") @doc(description: "The Sales Order query returns information about customer all placed order")

type SalesOrderCollection @doc(description: "Sales order item information") {
    allOrderRecords: [OrderRecord] @doc(description: "An array containing order information")

type OrderRecord @doc(description: "Sales Order graphql gather Data of specific order information") {
    increment_id: String @doc(description: "Increment Id of Sales Order")
    customer_name: String @doc(description: "Customername of Sales Order")
    grand_total: String @doc(description: "Grand total of Sales Order")
    created_at: String @doc(description: "Timestamp indicating when the order was placed")
    shipping_method: String @doc(description: "Shipping method for order placed")

In the Schema file, We have passed customer_id for getting customer id as input. In SalesOrderCollection type for getting all the records as an array,

We have created an array for [OrderRecord]. In the type OrderRecord, we have to display all the fields which we required in the response to the query. You can add an extra field also here in the above schema.

Step 3: Create Resolver Model

Now Create a Resolver Model for our custom module. AureateLabs\\CustomerOrder\\Model\\Resolver\\CustomerOrder.php CustomerOrder Model class which is defined in schema.graphqls file at above. In this Model, resolve() method will simply return data of all the Orders of the specific customer

Next create CustomerOrder.php file, path app/code/AureateLabs\CustomerOrder\Model\Resolver\CustomerOrder.php


namespace AureateLabs\CustomerOrder\Model\Resolver;

use Magento\Framework\Exception\NoSuchEntityException;
use Magento\Framework\GraphQl\Config\Element\Field;
use Magento\Framework\GraphQl\Exception\GraphQlInputException;
use Magento\Framework\GraphQl\Exception\GraphQlNoSuchEntityException;
use Magento\Framework\GraphQl\Query\ResolverInterface;
use Magento\Framework\GraphQl\Schema\Type\ResolveInfo;

 * Order sales field resolver, used for GraphQL request processing
class CustomerOrder implements ResolverInterface
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Sales\Api\OrderRepositoryInterface $orderRepository,
        \Magento\Framework\Api\SearchCriteriaBuilder $searchCriteriaBuilder,
        \Magento\Framework\Pricing\PriceCurrencyInterface $priceCurrency,
        \Magento\Directory\Model\Currency $currencyFormat
    ) {
        $this->orderRepository = $orderRepository;
        $this->searchCriteriaBuilder = $searchCriteriaBuilder;
        $this->priceCurrency = $priceCurrency;
        $this->currencyFormat =$currencyFormat;

     * Get current store currency symbol with price
     * $price price value
     * true includeContainer
     * Precision value 2
    public function getCurrencyFormat($price)
        return $this->getCurrencySymbol() . number_format((float)$price, \Magento\Framework\Pricing\PriceCurrencyInterface::DEFAULT_PRECISION);
     * Get current store CurrencySymbol
    public function getCurrencySymbol()
        $symbol = $this->priceCurrency->getCurrencySymbol();
        return $symbol;

     * @inheritdoc
    public function resolve(
        Field $field,
        ResolveInfo $info,
        array $value = null,
        array $args = null
    ) { 
        $customerId = $this->getCustomerId($args);
        $salesData = $this->getSalesData($customerId);

        return $salesData;

     * @param array $args
     * @return int
     * @throws GraphQlInputException
    private function getCustomerId(array $args): int
        if (!isset($args['customer_id'])) {
            throw new GraphQlInputException(__('"Customer id must be specified'));

        return (int)$args['customer_id'];

     * @param int $customerId
     * @return array
     * @throws GraphQlNoSuchEntityException
    private function getSalesData(int $customerId): array
        try {
            /* filter for all customer orders */
            $searchCriteria = $this->searchCriteriaBuilder->addFilter('customer_id', $customerId,'eq')->create();
            $orders = $this->orderRepository->getList($searchCriteria);

            $salesOrder = [];
            foreach($orders as $order) {
                $orderId = $order->getId();
                $salesOrder['allOrderRecords'][$orderId]['increment_id'] = $order->getIncrementId();
                $salesOrder['allOrderRecords'][$orderId]['customer_name'] = $order->getCustomerFirstname().' '.$order->getCustomerLastname();
                $salesOrder['allOrderRecords'][$orderId]['grand_total'] = $this->getCurrencyFormat($order->getGrandTotal());
                $salesOrder['allOrderRecords'][$orderId]['created_at'] = $order->getCreatedAt();
                $salesOrder['allOrderRecords'][$orderId]['shipping_method'] = $order->getShippingMethod();
        } catch (NoSuchEntityException $e) {
            throw new GraphQlNoSuchEntityException(__($e->getMessage()), $e);
        return $salesOrder;

We have set logic for getting all the orders from OrderRepositoryInterface. You need to set logic in the above file for display response.

Step 4: Install module and check

Now run the below command  to install our module

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento cache:flush

You can check your GraphQL query response by installing chrome extension ChromeiQL or Altair GraphQL addon.

Open ChromeiQl and set endpoint {YOUR_SITE_FRONT_URL}/graphql here  http://magento234.local is my local project url so my endpoint is http://magento234.local/graphql

In the Request Body, You need to pass the required data(field). I’m passing customer_id 1 for getting all the orders of a customer id 1.

Request Payload

  customerPlacedOrder (customer_id: 1) {

Result: The result will be an all Order list of which customer ID is 1.

  "data": {
    "customerPlacedOrder": {
      "allOrderRecords": [
          "increment_id": "000000001",
          "customer_name": "Veronica Costello",
          "grand_total": "$36.39",
          "created_at": "2020-04-24 06:44:58",
          "shipping_method": "flatrate_flatrate"
          "increment_id": "000000002",
          "customer_name": "Veronica Costello",
          "grand_total": "$39.64",
          "created_at": "2020-04-24 06:45:09",
          "shipping_method": "flatrate_flatrate"
          "increment_id": "000000003",
          "customer_name": "Veronica Costello",
          "grand_total": "$162.38",
          "created_at": "2020-05-24 05:39:26",
          "shipping_method": "tablerate_bestway"
        }      ]

Additional Information

Magento 2.3 and above have some inbuilt graphql you can test CMS Page GraphQl demo for access CMS Page data by GraphQL, Magneto 2.3 Comes with New Module called Magento_CmsGraphQl  That module is responsible for CMS page GraphQl Query languages. You can get Page and Block’s Data using GraphQL.

Body for CMS Page request in GraphQL

    id: 2
  ) {

For the above request body, a response would be like

  "data": {
    "cmsPage": {
      "url_key": "home",
      "title": "Home Page",
      "content": "",
      "content_heading": "Home Page",
      "page_layout": "1column",
      "meta_title": null,
      "meta_keywords": "",
      "meta_description": ""
