I have not been able to add products manually when there are many configured products since since the first version. It's mentioned in thread #3228 and it might relate to this problem.

Any short term work arounds?
Comment from joebusby, posted on GitHub Apr 12, 2016
With the right php settings, I have been able to add up to about 400 configured products (for one configurable product) going through the "Edit Configurations" process as long as I don't add any images to the products. You then need to put the images in manually, one by one. If you add images during the "Edit Configurations" process, I can only get about 125 products in or it bombs. The "Add products manually" feature has been useless for me, but I have managed to get about 2100 products in using the above method with a lot of "clicks" to add the images. You will get good at using filters.
Related to #3154

@joebusby be great if you could share your PHP tweaks ?

max_input_vars -> 5000
max_execution_time = 600
memory_limit = 2048M
but I think the max_input_vars is the most important
You can try:
error_reporting = off
All in php.ini
I am using this on
Debian 8 up to date
MySQL version 5.6.28
OpenVZ 6 cores
so it may not be the same as your php 7.0.4
I have been having better luck with chrome than firefox on windows 10 for adding many configurable products
With chrome you may be able to avoid hitting the "wait" dialog by using:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disable-hang-monitor
in the windows shortcut properties

Is this something that will get fixed in 2.1 release?

@choukalos performance use case
@rkhoury82 can you provide more info on your specific use case? what type of products? what is the maximum number of products you would like to use etc?

For example, I run multiple apparel store's (swimwear)
We offer all products in all colours and sizes (some might be stocked and some are made to order)
So configurable product:
10-15 Sizes (from Attributes)
20-30 Colours (from Attributes)
So 300-400 combinations (Simple Product), need the simple product to manage stock / inventory
