Hi All, 

Could someone explain me which is the relationship between the tables product_product and product_template? 

Is possible to have records in product_template tables that has no reference in product_product?

If a product has only 1 variant, and I remove the flag active from the variant , should the product be deactivetd too or it could remain with none active variant ?

The product.template is used as a base for product variants that are product.product and for a product.template record you will get at least 1 product.product variant that it's actually what you use to store, sell, buy... product.product records

So, products with no variants are not allowed by Odoo? 

What happens when I deactivate a variant?

Kind regards

In the table you product_product key product_tmpl_id 'many2one' product_template The fact of creating a recording that automatically creates product_template in product_product

if you have several alternatives you're not going to have fun a modified field by one.
