How to setup more than one variant?

Hi all,

When I create a product with a variant, I don't get the product variants generated with the differents variant values I have entered.

Example : I create product 1 with variant color = blue and color = red, when I save I get the product created correctly  but only one product variant without any attribute value. 

I'm on V8 rc1, could you help me with that ? Did I miss something ?

You need to have 1 attribute and 2 attribute values. This means that you should have only 1 line in the variants tab of your product. If you do this, you will see "2 variants" in the top-right shortcut. It should show like this:
Color:   Blue Red

I believe you made the mistake of creating 2 lines, which is incorrect for your scenario and that you created the following:
Color:   Blue
Color:   Red

Having 2 lines with the same attribute makes sense in scenarios that deal with compatibility, but not in a scenario with something like a color.

Problem is solved. In fact, we can't create 2 lines of the same variant. If we do so, the product variants are not generated.
