I want to show out of stock simple products swatches in configurable product (M2.2.4) to show size etc is available but Out of Stock.

I thought M2 did this with "Display Out of Stock Products" but doesn't seem to work.

  • Seems there is a bug, when product has only one attribute Out of stock products are not shown even when "Display Out of Stock Products" is set. Report Ref: github.com/magento/magento2/issues/15047

To be able to activate this configuration go to Products -> Catalog, there we choose any product and we go to the option of Quantity. Under it, there is the option "advanced inventory", click on it and select the first box that says Use configuration options found under Manage stock.

This configuration will show all the swatches

  • This isn't correct. The question was to show the swatches when they're out of stock, not simply show them. This doesn't answer that question.
