Request: Set Product Attribute "Apply To" not based on Product Type but
... rather visibility (or new attribute) ... or attribute set related
We sell for example T-shirts and ties.
For T-shirts 1 configurable product exist. With several simple products.
For Ties only simple products exist (onesize)
Product meta data is stored on the parent product. For T-shirts the configurable product. For ties the simple product.
Now if we make an attribute required like COLOR for simple products it also applies to the child products of the t-shirt: and this is where it goes wrong
Every time we edit the qty of barcode of a simple product we are enforced to select a color for the simple product. And this is very wrong: meta data is stored on the parent configurable level
To me this has always been a design flaw that can be improved
Request: create attributes "Apply To" based on something else than Product Type. Rather I can imagine a product is set up as a Salable Parent (meaning: presented on the frontend). So if this flag is set then attribute checks and other apply. It would also simplify many rules and coupon setup.
