A configurable SKU holds other SKUs, in a different way than linked SKUs do. An example of a configurable item is a computer; customers can order them with varying amounts of memory, hard drive types, video cards, etc. Configurable items consist of a “base SKU” and a number of optional subSKUs for the user to choose among.

The following repository items are used when working with configurable SKUs:




Base SKU for the product, to which other products can be added as options, such as a computer.


A category of subSKUs, such as Memory or Modems. The configurableProperty holds the list of configurationOptions.


The SKU representing the actual product option, such as a particular model of hard drive.


An external system with which ATG Commerce communicates.
