With version 6.1 a product variation can be created based on multiple attribute value combinations. Prior to that one product variation was only having one product attribute and only one value associated to it.
A product “Dress” now may have a variation with color “Black” and size “L” and another variation with color “White” and size “XS” and maybe another one with color “Black” and size “M”. The number of attributes you may select per variation is infinite.
After upgrading to Sitefinity CMS 6.1 all of the old variations will keep the selected attributes with their respective values that have been specified but they also will receive all other attributes that are applied to the product type which this variation belongs to. However these attributes won’t have any assigned values. Due to that fact it’s essential for you to manually merge your variations. Example:
Let’s say that so far you have created the following variations:
1. Color “Black”
2. Color “Blue”
3. Gender “Male”
4. Gender “Female”
After the upgrade you will have the same number of variations in the back-end but in the front-end you will see:
1. Color “Black”, Gender “Please select”
2. Color “Blue”, Gender “Please select”
3. Gender “Male”, Color “Please select”
4. Gender “Female”, Color “Please select”
