Product Types

Oro Commerce offers two product types:

  • Simple
  • Configurable

Editing Products

When creating or editing products, a form is provided made up of the product's Family, which determines the Attributes which will be available.

Translations are handled not on a scope level, but on a per-attribute level. Translatable attributes have a small folder icon next to them, which shows each locale, with the option to either enter a value, or "Use: Default Value".

Products can set their own

Product Families

Managed at Admin > Products > Product Families

Product Families exist to work with a set of related attributes together

Product Families can be grouped together, which manifest themselves as blocks in the Create/Edit Product form

Product Attributes

Managed at Admin > Products > Product Attributes

Attributes have several Frontend Options:

  • Searchable: Yes/No
  • Filterable: Yes/No
  • Filter By: Exact Value or Fuzzy Value
  • Enabled: Yes/No
  • Visible: Yes/No

Of note is that prices are not Attributes. These are handled by the Sales module's Price Lists

Price Lists

Managed at Admin > Sales > Price Lists

Products don't contain a single straightforward Price attribute, as these are managed in the much more extensive Price Lists

Categories

Managed at Admin > Products > Master Catalog

Like products, translations are handled not on a scope level, but on a per-attribute level. Translatable attributes have a small folder icon next to them, which shows each locale, with the option to either enter a value, or "Use: Default Value".

Some Category Attributes offer the option to use the same value as its parent category.
