After the created attribute set was saved, there will appear the page containing three following columns:


Attribute set name - here you can edit the attribute set name for the internal use (customers cannot see attribute sets you have created)

Groups - the list of attribute groups included to the current set; you can add a new group, or edit/delete the existing one

Unassigned Attributes - the list of attributes not assigned to the current attribute set. By dragging unassigned attributes to attribute groups contained in the attribute set, you assign them to the current set.

What Are Magento 2 Attribute Groups?


Magento 2 simplifies attribute management with the possibility to arrange attributes by groups (for example, you can unite attributes related to price, meta information or images etc). You can add a new group by pressing 'Add new group' button and fill it with attributes by dragging them from the other groups or from the Unassigned attributes section.

What is the Difference between Magento 2 Attribute Set and Magento 2 Attribute Group?


As you already know, there are attribute sets and attribute groups in Magento 2. The purpose of both of them is to unite attributes, though in different way.

Magento 2 attribute set is formed from attribute groups. Two attribute sets for different products may include the same attribute groups. That's why Magento allows creating an attribute set basing on the existing one. For instance, you want to generate an attribute set for Snickers and it should include some attribute groups that are contained also in Boots attribute set. You can use the Boots attribute set as base for the Snickers set and adjust it by adding or deleting attribute groups or specific attributes.

Here how Magento 2 attribute hierarchy looks like:

That means that Magento 2 attribute set consists of attribute groups that sequentially consist of attributes. You can manage sets by adding or editing or deleting attribute groups from the sets or adding attributes not assigned to the groups of the current set.

Magento Store Manager brings the possibility to perform all operations related to Magento 2 attribute management within one window. Use the corresponding tollbars to quickly add/ edit or delete attribute sets, attribute groups or separate attributes.
