I observe the following :

1. When we create a product template, it's create a product variant without any variant attribute automatically. 

2. When I create a product variant, it's also create a product template automatically. 

As I will create and import the product template and product variant from a legacy sytem so I don't that to happens. I want to explicitly create the product template and its variant ? 

Can I do that ? Is there any reason why odoo create product template/product variant?

The next question is for now, in the web UI I don't have any ways to link a product variant to a product template, the only work-around I have to do is create variant attributes and it's auto generate the variants. I click on Variants Tab and then I create variant product for that product template there. 

Why I cannot set the product template for a variant directly from the product variant ?
