Using Search with product variants

HCL Commerce provides a rich set of Search tools to use with product variants. Once you have enabled Search for variants, a number of usage scenarios become possible. Those scenarios are described in the following topics.

A variant is a catalog entry type that is in between being a product and an item. The variant appears as a product with one specified attribute and attribute value, and is regarded as a child of the product. All the SKUs under the same product that possess the same attribute and attribute value pair are considered children of the variant.
