    • Name - Numeric;
    • ID.

Parameters Enable Archive - generate hyperlink on page who displayed list products from identical attribute value. Link will be created to rules - "slug-attribute/slug-attribute-value".


On page Attributes, you can add value attribute. Use link "Configure terms" for add value. By the way value for attributes type "Select" - required. If not add value for attribute type "Select", inserting attribute in product, will be empty list value for this attribute ( need more attributes :) ).
