Products contain details, such as, the name, description, and SKU. Products are listed in a catalog using hierarchies. These catalogs then display the product in the storefront, such as a website. In Elastic Path Commerce Manager, you can also associate attributes with products using templates. However, product information does not contain pricing details. Pricing details for the products are managed in price books. For more information about products in Product Experience Manager (EP PXM), see the EP PXM Products section.
Product Status and Catalog Releases
For a product to appear in the store, the product must be in the active state and belong to at least one hierarchy within the target catalog. By default, a product is created in the draft state. This is to ensure that the product details are reviewed and approved before publishing it. When you publish a catalog, only the active products appear in the catalog release. If you change the product status and want it to reflect in the catalog release, you must republish the catalog release.
