My magento version magento 2.0.0 when i am trying to create configure product with it's associate simple product it gives one configure product and it's associate product but it's type virtual instead of simple.

I miss any configure stuff? or having some bug with this version?

You do not set the weight before generation of children's products. Depending on this field the Magento decides what type of product is created

  • For those who wander: you must put weight on configurable when you create configuration through wizard, not on the different configuration. You simply can't actually, on 2.2.2. It's specified nowhere, that's the pb. Feb 7 '18 at 13:57
  • I've been tripped up by this numerous times. Thanks for clarifying. However, for one of my clients, who sells paints, this process is counter intuitive. If you sell a brand of white paint in different volumes (1 liter, 5 liters, 10 liters) then the weight will be different - so setting weight for the parent seems odd.

  • when you are done with all wizard steps and selected all product then you will get input to edit weight for each product before save main product.

In Magento 2.0 products become virtual if you have not configured weight for it. Most likely you have generated configurable product via wizard and missed weight.
