Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » [2.7] How to change product type when new product is added

  • Now sure whether this forum is the best place for my query, but didn’t know elsewhere better to ask support.

    This issue is about WC2.7 beta that I currently testing.

    When a new product is added in the admin backend – and while is still stored as Auto Draft – I want to programmatically:

    1. change product type to variable
    2. add an existing attribute and terms
    3. create variations using the attribute terms

    Any one knows how to achieve this? I’m just looking for a strawman, high level direction, not a full solution.

    Since WC2.5+ I have been hooking into save_post action and using roughly update_post_meta to add the attribute, wp_insert_post to create the variations and javascript to set the product type selector to Variable Product. With 2.7 this will not work.

    Thanks in advance.

    I’d recommend using the REST API instead for that; 2.7 has updated all the CRUD functions required for that 🙂
