Not sure if it's a bug or I'm just missing the point but when I create a configurable product in Magento 2.2.1 - the layered navigation on the front end doesn't update.
To get the layered navigation to be updated, I have to resave any one, yes only one, of the simple products that were generated when creating the configurable product.
So I guess my question is...
Why do I need to resave a simple product that's been generated from creating a configurable product in Magento 2.2.1 for changes to be applied to the Layered navigation on the frontend?
Solved! Go to Solution.
you need to run indexer command after completing of your product creation.
php bin/magento indexer:reindex
php bin/magento cache:flush
After run indexer just run cache and you dont need to do a save simple product through admin.
Thanks rakeesh for explaining that to me.
Is there a reason the indexes aren't run when I save a configurable product even though the indexers are set to run "On save"
If i set the indexers to run on a schedule, is there a way I can set the default ones to run every 10 minutes, instead of every minute like magento recommends?
And do you know which indexer specifically updates the layered navigation?
