In order to define the attributes of a product variant, you can go to the Configuration menu of the module. Here, you can find the Product Attributes option. Clicking on this option will lead you to a new platform as shown below where you will get the list view of Attributes, Categories, Display Type, Variants Creation Mode, and eCommerce Filter Visibility.

Mention the Attribute Name and set a Category to group similar attributes together in the comparison page of eCommerce. Select the DisplayType used in the product configurator of eCommerce. It can be Radio, Pills, Select, or Color. The available Variant Creation Modes are given below.

Instantly: All possible variants are created as soon as the attribute and its values are added to a product.

Dynamically: Each variant is created only when its corresponding attributes and values are added to a sales order.

Never: Variants are never created for the attribute.

The variant creation mode can not be changed once the attribute is used on at least one product. In the eCommerce Filter Visibility field, you can decide whether you want to make the attribute Visible or Hide it from the available filters on eCommerce. Under the Attribute Values, you can add values using the Add a Line button. The products with this attribute can be observed using the smart button Related Products available in the form view.
