Product Attribtues represent the configurable qualities of a Product. Attributes appear in the Configuration Form of the Catalog Item Preview Panel.

Attribute Types

There are three types of Catalog Item Attributes:
A 'String' allows for literal definition of an Attribute, and its values. For example, this wheel has two Styles, 'A' and 'B'.

Which is surfaced in the Configuration Form by way of this corresponding Attribute.

A 'Number' Attribute provides the user with a number entry field. For Example, the wheel requires a Rim Size.

A 'Part Reference' associates a Catalog Item via either a literal reference or a Tag representing one or many Catalog Items. In the example above, the Metal may be included via a Part Reference Attribute containing literal values representing each Metal Material:

or by way of a Part Reference Attribute containing a Tag shared amongst each Catalog Item that references a corresponding Metal Material:

Either approach would ensure appropriate Attribute Values appear in the Configuration Form for the Metal Attribute:

FYI
Both Part References and Tags may be used within a single field.

Re-Ordering Product Attributes

When Editing a Catalog Item, the order of the Attributes can be re-ordered by way of the handle on the left. Drag and drop executes a swap, as opposed to a re-ordering of attributes.
