Configurable Product Stock Level is zero but some simple products have stock?

Configurable Product Stock Level is zero but some simple products have stock?

Hi

 

I have some configurable products that show out of stock on the front end even though some of its simple products do have stock. This has happened multiple times.

 

Is this a design feature or a bug?

 

How can I fix this?

 

Thanks

 

Patrick

Hi,

The configurable product itself needs to be marked as 'in stock' in the inventory tab.

Re: Configurable Product Stock Level is zero but some simple products have stock?

Hi

 

Thanks for the tip. It worked.

 

What happens if the stock automatically goes to 0 for all the simple products under the configurable. Will it change it automatically back to "Out Of Stock" ? If I then have new stock and import the new stock levels, will it then automatically switch back to "In Stock" because at least 1 item in the simple products does have stock?

 

I have nealy 3,000 products so it will be hard to manually intervene like this every time I refresh the stock levels.

 

Thanks

Hi,

There is an excellent thread here that describes the issue's you are facing. There is also a CRON there that can run periodically and correct all your configurable stock levels accordingly.
