I have a product P in attribute set S where a value is set to attribute A.

If I now remove attribute A from the attribute set S, the value for A of P remains in the database as long as I don't completely remove the attribute X itself.

How can I remove these values so that the function hasData() of Mage_Catalog_Model_Product returns false?


This is not tested and may not work:

$productAttributes = $product->getTypeInstance(true)->getEditableAttributes($product);
foreach ($product->getData() as $code=>$value) {
    if (!array_key_exists($code, $productAttributes) {
        $product->setData($code, null);
