* In the **Variants** tab, you can see [super attributes](/docs/scos/user/features/202009.0/product-feature-overview/product-feature-overview.html#super-attributes) that derive from **Catalog** > **Attributes**. See [Creating product attributes](/docs/scos/user/back-office-user-guides/202009.0/catalog/attributes/create-product-attributes.html) to learn how to create them. * You can select as many super attributes as you need and define one or more values for them. For each product attribute value you select, a product variant is created. After creating the abstract product, you can create new product variants based on the super attributes you select when creating the abstract product. * While editing the abstract product/product bundle, you will see a table that displays the product variants that exist for this abstract product. From this page, you can View, Edit, and Manage Attributes for the product variant.
