When I'm trying to change the quantity of a product in the admin, it will not be stored in the database. This problem only occurs when the EAV cache is enabled.

The quantity input field has the name: "product[quantity_and_stock_status][qty]". If I save the product, javascript will create a new hidden input field with the name "product[stock_data][qty]". After saving the product, there will be a page refresh. After that page refresh, there is a POST request visible in the Network tab from my Chrome Developer Tools.

When I check the Request Payload in the tab Headers, both input field values are visible, I see the quantity_and_stock_status:

    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="product[quantity_and_stock_status][qty]"

And I see the stock_data:

    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="product[stock_data][qty]"

1700 is the value that I entered in the quantity field, but the value didn't change in the database, so it sets the old value (1500) in the input field: Product quantity

When I check the page source (after the page was saved), the JSON of the product form data contains quantity_and_stock_status and stock_data. But now the values are both 1500.

          "website_id": "0",
          "type_id": "simple",

(This is only the relevant info of the JSON)

Has anyone encountered this problem or could this be a Magento bug?

If you fetch issue with your new product type then simply make change in product_types.xml.

open product_types.xml and add to node type attribute isQty="true. e.g

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../Magento/Catalog/etc/product_types.xsd">
    <type name="yournewproducttype" label="New Product Type" modelInstance="[NameSpace]\[Module]\Model\Product\Type\Credit" indexPriority="10" isQty="true" canUseQtyDecimals="false" sortOrder="25">
        <priceModel instance="[NameSpace]\[Module]\Model\Product\Type\Credit\Price" />
        <type name="yournewproducttype" />

Hope so it's help you !!


I have the same problem. It seems to only happen on my custom product type but so far I haven't found a solution. Unless the product type doesn't have all the needed product attributes assigned to it.
