Initial setup

Go to STORES → CONFIGURATION → AITOC EXTENSIONS → CONFIGURABLE PRODUCTS to choose your global settings.

Setting Purpose
Batch size (server-side) This setting defines the load onto your server. The default value is 50. If your server is resourceful, you can increase this value. If your server starts lagging, decrease the value.
Batch size (client-side) This setting defines the load onto your browser.
Configurable product edit page HTML size limit (megabytes) Maximum size of HTML code a browser can handle without freezing or crashing. The default value is 5. We don't recommend increasing it. If your browser starts lagging when creating / editing configurable products, decrease the value.
Enable simple products quantity limit This setting will prevent cron from creating more simple products than set by Batch size.

Creating simple products

To mass create simple products within a configurable product, first, make sure that you have all necessary attributes added (or create them). You can also create an attribute set before making it configurable. Then create your configurable product and save it. After that, you'll see the tab "Configurable Products" appear in the product settings. In this tab, you have the matrix which helps you quickly generate your simple products based on required attributes:

Pick the attributes you need and hit the "Generate" button.

Loader.

You'll see a loader appearing on your screen, it signals about the products creation process. Depending on your server resources, it might take a while for the products to be generated so keep patience.

Once you click the "Generate" button, you will be able to specify these parameters for simple products before creating them:

These settings are mass applied to all simple products.

Setting Purpose
Weight Weight of the product.
Price Price of the product.
Qty Quantity of the product.
Status Has two options: • Enabled • Disabled
Visibility Has four options: • Not visible individually • Catalog • Search • Catalog, search

These settings can be changed for every single product individually on the matrix grid. Just click on the little pen icon to make the changes and apply them:

Setting Purpose
