I am trying to save a product. I get "Some product variations fields are not valid" error message.
How do I solve it?

The possible reason - the attribute set you have used for simple products is not the same as for parent configurable product.
They should match. Please, check this.
You make it sound so easy @Store_Manager
Unfortunately I don't know what to do next.
Do I go to Products > Catalog and edit the product somehow?
or do I go to Stores > Attributes - Product and do something there?
or do I go to Stores > Attributes - Attribute Set and do something there?
I just can't figure out what exactly is broken.
I got the product to save by changing the product attribute to "Not Required"
But then It forced the product to be out of stock i.e, 0 quantity and the quantity boxed is grayed out even though each of the 3 configurations has a stock quantity in them that is greater than 0.
Well, @sportame you said that I have made it sound so easy, when I asked you to check attribute set. Actually that is easier than what have you done - changing (some) attribute to not required.
To check attribute set go to:
- Products - Catalog and find there necessary parent configurable product. In main grid it will be indicated its attribute set -
- then open edit form for configurable product, scroll down to simple products
Click on simple product variations (name) and you will be redirected to simple product edit form. There you will see attribute set it belongs to -
Check if they mismatch.
Ok, thank you @Store_Manager. I followed your instructions and they match.

But I still need to get the product to be "in stock" with a quantity greater than 0
P.S. how are you uploading your screen shots to this forum?
As far as I know, in Magento 2 only the quantity of associated products is taken into account and the qty of parent configurable product is ignored.
I guess the reason is that when person buys the product, he/she chooses the variation from the drop-down (that is simple product). This way parent configurable product only servers as 'holder' that keeps all the variations together at the same page, but it never actually purchased itself.
So most likely there is simply no need to input qty for parent configurable item and it is grayed out. In my case it goes not influence the availability of product at store, as the it is in stock, visible at front-end and available for purchase, as qty is taken from associated simple products.
P.S. As for screenshots, I make them using Jing, then get the link to image. Then I open it in browser, click to enlarge and get full image URL with .png at the end. After that I either click on image icon in forum reply menu or switch to html tab and add image tag (like <img src="image link with png">).
Though, I must admin that this doesn't work all the time. Sometimes this forum is messing with me and I have to edit my post a few times to get necessary result
I'm having this same problem and receiving this error when I'm trying to add new product, it will not save what I have entered and I get this error message, we've looked at it every which way. Was not experiencing this problem prior but I did make a change to the attribute set and now don't know how to fix it.
